The holy grail of yeast strains with purported origins from a famed Vermont brewery, Barbarian gives you wonderful stone fruit esters and enhances hop character in beers. The complexity of this yeast is well suited for an array of hoppy beers, and it is most often used in the production of all kinds of IPAs, from session all the way up to imperial. The combination of peach and apricot esters works especially well with American citrus hops. It has medium flocculation characteristics and works much like a standard American strain, but produces a unique flavor profile. Use this yeast to brew a mean and spot-on Heady Topper clone!
