Froth Wilding | FTW1 (NZ Wild Ale)

Froth Wilding FTW1

It turns out, the Rangitīkei District is a pretty funky place; it's the origin of Wilding, the first-ever commercial brewers yeast isolated from the New Zealand wilderness. This yeast isolate was collected as a wild mixed culture from an air-trap (nano koelschip). Subtle spice from phenols, fruity banana, pear and apple esters, and a dry lager-like finish that is surprisingly clean. Validated by PCR as: Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus.

Attenuation: 84-93% | Flocculation: Low-Med | Alcohol Tolerance: 10% | Temp: 17-23°C
Origin:Rangitīkei District, NZ | STA1: Positive | Pitch Rate: 0.5M cells / mL / °P
