Observable traits
AROMA CHARACTERISTICS:
When fermented at the correct temperature, Empire Ale yeast exhibits extremely
characterful and appetizing estery aromas reminiscent of rich dark fruit.
Flavor/MOUTHFEEL CHARACTERISTICS:
This yeast strain has been carefully selected to aid mouthfeel in the finished beer.
Body should be full leaning towards a rich dark fruit character. Care must be taken when
designing the beer to adjust hop bitterness to alleviate an over sweet finished beer.
HIGHER ALCOHOL BEERS:
Higher alcohol beers will tend to be slightly too sweet and heavy due to the moderate
attenuative capabilities of the strain although a lower mash temperature may help the
fermentability and lower the final gravity.
