Observable Traits

AROMA CHARACTERISTICS:

When fermented at the correct temperature, Empire Ale yeast exhibits extremely characterful and appetizing estery aromas reminiscent of rich dark fruit.

FLAVOR/MOUTHFEEL CHARACTERISTICS:

This yeast strain has been carefully selected to aid mouth feel in the finished beer. Body should be full leaning towards a rich dark fruit character. Care must be taken when designing the beer to adjust hop bitterness to alleviate an over sweet finished beer.

HIGHER ALCOHOL BEERS:

Higher alcohol beers will tend to be slightly too sweet and heavy due to the moderate attenuative capabilities of the strain although a lower mash temperature may help the fermentability and lower the final gravity.
