Joystick A18

Imperial Yeast's A18 Joystick is a clean American brewing yeast strain. It is a fast mover which allows it to be used at the low end of the temperature spectrum for ale fermentation and will still allow the beer to be clean. It is a fast attenuator.

If you need a substitution we recommend Imperial A07 Flagship.

It is the perfect choice for big, high alcohol, hoppy beers or big, high alcohol, malt forward beers alike.
