Escarpment Marina Russian Farmhouse yeast, 125ml
While not technically kveik, this S. cerevisiae strain from deep in Chuvashia in Russia is quite unique, and we thought it was worth sharing in the Kveik Ring program.
Marina displays notes of white wine, baking spice, and light vanilla. It is closest in profile to Belgian ale strains and would be at home in Belgian styles or as the primary strain in a mixed culture ferment. Traditionally, it is used in a rye-heavy boiled-mash beer.
Can be pitched anywhere from 25ºC to 39ºC, with cleaner results at the lower end.
