S. arlingtonesis


The Original

BB22204 – S. arlingtonesis™

Availability: Limited

Source: Isolated from wild yeast starter jar in Arlington, VA using Bootleg Biology’s Capture Method #1.

S. arlingtonesis™ is our flagship Local Yeast Project™ strain. The very first culture added to our bank, and luckily, one of the most unique.

This culture ferments extremely cleanly in the low 60’sF (Kolsch and Lager hybrids), and subtle fruity/citrus esters in the higher end of the Ale fermentation range (wheat-centric beers). May produce sulfur aromas during primary fermentation, but those will be eliminated within a couple weeks (allow longer aging if fermenting at lower temperatures). S. arlingtonesis is a higher attenuator than most ale strains, so adjustments made need to be made to grain bills or mash temperatures if a drier beer is not preferred.

“produced a very refreshing and drinkable weizenbier” – Greg Kitsock, Mid Atlantic Brewing News

Product Category: Local Yeast Project™

Local Yeast Project™ cultures are our hand-picked favorite Local Yeast Project™ strains that were originally sourced from local areas around the U.S. and the world. These cultures are a great opportunity for brewers interested in the areas they were sourced to create a house wild culture for brewing. The majority of Local Yeast Project cultures will be considered clean-fermenting, are highly attenuative and work best at normal ale temperatures.

Due to these culture’s wild nature, there will be variations in fermentation performance and flavor/aroma contributions batch to batch. Brewing with local wild cultures will be a fun and unique experience, but will be far more variable than with domesticated brewer’s yeast. This is an opportunity to get a truly local flavor by starting with a local wild culture and shaping it to your preferences and brewing profile.
