This extremely flocculant yeast produces distinctly malty beers. Attenuation levels are typically less than most other yeast strains, making a slightly sweeter finish. Ales produced with this strain tend to be fairly fruity. This fruitiness increases with higher fermentation temperatures (70-74 F, 21-23 C). Diacetyl production is noticeable and a thorough rest at is necessary. This yeast traps trub easily and autolysis is accelerated. It is a very good cask conditioned ale strain due to its thorough flocculation characteristics. Beers become readily bright within days. Brilliant beers are easily achieved without any filtration.
Consider adding the yeast fuel option.
- Attenuation: 67-71%
- Flocculation: Very High
- Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 60-72 F (15-22 C)
