From: Escarpment Labs
Type: Yeast • Packet: Liquid
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae
STA1 gene: Yes
This enigmatic strain has proven itself in many breweries who use it alone or paired with Vermont Ale to produce fruit-forward, hoppy beers. Produces and enhances tropical fruit flavours. If used alone, we recommend a highly fermentable wort. This strain is non-phenolic, but contains the STA1 gene potentially resulting in diastatic activity. However, we have not typically seen aggressive attenuation with this strain.

Brewing Properties of Cerberus
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.
