From: Imperial Yeast
Type: Yeast • Packet: Liquid
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus
Fantastic choice for a Belgian saison or farmhouse beer. This unique yeast can be used in your saison, farmhouse ale, or other Belgian styles where high ester levels are important. Rustic typically produces a lot of bubblegum and fruity/juicy aromas that compliment complex maltiness. Balanced by a light clove phenol profile, Rustic produces lovely flavor profiles indicative of those classic Belgain styles known and loved. This strain tests positive for the STA1 gene via PCR analysis and is therefore considered to be Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus

Brewing Properties of Rustic
The functional properties of brewing yeasts have a direct impact on the performance, quality and economics of the resulting beer.
The alcohol tolerance determines the ABV at which yeast cells go dormant and stop fermenting.
Attenuation refers to the percentage of sugars converted to alcohol and carbon dioxide, as measured by specific gravity.
Flocculation refers to the tendency of yeast to form clumps called "flocs" that drop in order to make the beer clear.
The optimal temperature is the range in which the yeast performs best without putting off any off-flavors. Pitching the yeast into wort usually happens at the low end of the temperature range.
