Citrus - A20

Wild saccharomyces yeast strain known to produce a huge citrus fruit ester profile.

Citrus cranks out orange and lemon aromas along with some tropical fruit. Use this strain at high temps for big ester production. A wild saccharomyces strain, it will get a bit funky without the worries of a brettanomyces strain. Keep an eye on your fermentations, it does like to hit a false terminal and then slowly finish out the rest of fermentation. 

Temperature: 67-80F (19-27C
Flocculation: Low

Attenuation: 74-78% 
Alcohol Tolerance: 10%

SPECIES: Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus

This strain tests positive for the STA1 gene via PCR analysis and is therefore considered to be Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus
