Lactic Magic - Escarpment Labs

Made by Guelph's own Escarpment Labs Yeast Company. This is their Lactic Magic yeast. Lactic Magic is a wild strain of Lachancea thermotolerans sour yeast that we captured in a Guelph backyard. Lactic Magic produces lactic acid from glucose in your wort. Compared to similar products, Lactic Magic displays enhanced citrus and tropical fruit aromatics and softer acidity. Since it is a yeast, Lactic Magic can be used to make hop-forward sour beers without annoying re-boiling steps!

Usage notes: Added glucose (dextrose) is required for lactic acid production. Fermentation is slower than Saccharomyces but faster than Brett. Requires adequate nutrients and oxygen. See Instructions Sheet for additional tips!
