A01 House - Imperial Organic Yeast

House from Imperial Organic Yeast is truly a versatile strain that works great as, well, a house strain! It is well balanced, allowing both malt and hop character to shine in the finished beer. This yeast is clean all around, but will produce more fruity esters as temperature increases. While it works well on American IPAs and pales, it can be used in a plethora of ales, both British and American. This yeast is highly flocculant and will drop out of solution after fermentation, yielding brilliantly clear beers. A great choice for a house strain in your home brewery!


A15 Independence - Imperial Organic Yeast

Independence is an American ale strain that is great for making hop-forward beers! It will produce more fruity esters than a standard, neutral American ale yeast strain. These esters tend to mesh well with hop character, bringing out their full potential. While it can be used in hoppy beers, it can also give a unique character to English ales and stouts, and can work in a range of different ales. Give this one a try next time you are planning on making a hoppy beer!

B64 Napoleon - Imperial Organic Yeast

Ready for a yeast strain that attenuates well and gives you citrusy esters and peppery phenolics? Napoleon is here to conquor your taste buds!

It ferments sugars like they are nothing, even chewing through sugars that most saccharomyces strains would leave alone.

As it is a low flocculating yeast, it may take longer for those strongly fermenting yeast to settle out of suspension and clarify the beer.


A09 Pub - Imperial Organic Yeast

Beers fermented with Global shine and stand out! It is good on anything from light German pilsners to rich bock and doppelbock styles.

B48 Triple Double - Imperial Organic Yeast

Triple Double is a great Belgian yeast strain for use in making high gravity Belgian ales of all kinds! Specifically designed for dubbels, trippels and quads, this is actually a very nice strain to use on almost any Belgian beer.

It will produce the big esters and a high amount of spicy phenolics which are characteristic of traditional Belgian ales and the monk-produced Abbey ales. Great for trappist-style beers as well! As this strain is a lower flocculating strain, expect it to stay in solution for awhile, completing fermentation and giving a distinct dryness to the finished beers.
