Bru Yeast Y4444 American Ale
« on: April 25, 2018, 11:23:07 PM »
I got two 1 gallon IIPA kits that contained this yeast and figured I’d use them by combining the kits and adding some grains to make a 4.5 gal IPA. Does anyone know anything about this yeast? I’m looking for attenuation and flocculation info. Figure I’ll just make a small starter (1/2 of a quart saving a portion in case I like it).

It says this is some sort of Vermont yeast and I’m guessing it’s what used in Heady Topper as one kit is a clone.

I see it claims it’s Munton’s.

I got identical yeast from 2 different kits. Speaking to someone at Northern Brewer about their Off The Topper Kit I was told it is US-05. However the Midwest Hop Monster kit states it comes with Muntons.
