This is a true top cropping yeast with low ester formation. This yeast's broad temperature range affects styles. It will ferment cold in the 55 F (13 C) range, producing lager characteristics including sulfur production. This style is noted for its dry, crisp characteristics. Fermentation at higher temperatures (70-75 F, 21-24 C) may produce some mild fruitiness. This is an extremely poor flocculating yeast; it generally remains significantly in suspension without treatment or filtration. Pad filtration is often difficult. Brewers benefit from DE filtration or centrifuging. Beers mature fairly rapidly, even when cold fermentation is used. There is low or no detectable diacetyl.
Consider adding the yeast fuel option.
