A true top cropping yeast similar to Alt strains, this yeast produces slightly more fruity/winey characteristics. Fruitiness increases when the temperature increases. There is low or no detectable diacetyl production. It also ferments well in the cold 55-60 F range (13-16 C). The yeast can be used to produce quick-conditioning pseudo-lager beers. Its poor flocculation requires either filtration or additional settling time to produce bright beers.
Consider adding the yeast fuel option.
- Attenuation: 73-77%
- Flocculation: Low
- Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 56-70 F (13-21 C)
