This strain produces a malty beer that is slightly fruity for lower gravity beers. Very high alcohol tolerance makes this a good yeast choice for beers above 10% ABV.
|Alcohol Tolerance:||Very High|
*INIS-317 English Ale VII has been identified using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to contain the glucoamylase gene (STA1), which can be an indicator of S. cerevisiae var. diastaticus. As such, INIS-317 has the ability to utilize some dextrins which are unfermentable to most species of S. cerevisiae, and thus achieve a very high level of attenuation. However, INIS-317 is not considered a contaminant and will not over attenuate finished beer when a high level of attenuation is expected.
