Vigorous strain that seemed to find its sweet spot at 64 degrees (steady, even fermentation at that temp for my batch). Left behind rich malty flavors and settled out thoroughly in the fermenter. Beer was OG of 76 and finished at 16.

Great Imperial Stout Strain
Don't let the word "Scottish" fool you. This isn't just for Scottish Ales. I have used it with great success on a few imperial size beers. I like that it attenuates slightly lower than others and leaves a bit more body.

Great flavor
I used this on a red that I brewed. Worked well for 6 gallons without letting package bloat up. I would buy this again.

One of my favorites
Love this yeast! Easily my favorite Scottish Ale yeast. Provides the great complexity and maltiness that you expect in this style. Easily handles both light and heavy versions. Just used it for a Strong Scotch Ale with an O.G. of 1.111, and it fermented down to 1.020 without any problem!
