SafAle F-2 (F-2)
Type: Yeast • Packet: Dry
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae
SafAle™ F-2 brewing yeast has been selected specifically for secondary fermentation in bottle and in cask. This yeast assimilates very little amount of maltotriose but assimilates basic sugars (glucose, fructose, saccharose, maltose). It is characterized by a neutral aroma profile respecting the base beer character and settles very homogeneously at the end of fermentation.
Brewing Properties of SafAle F-2
The functional properties of brewing yeasts have a direct impact on the performance, quality and economics of the resulting beer.
The alcohol tolerance determines the ABV at which yeast cells go dormant and stop fermenting.
Attenuation refers to the percentage of sugars converted to alcohol and carbon dioxide, as measured by specific gravity.
Flocculation refers to the tendency of yeast to form clumps called "flocs" that drop in order to make the beer clear.
The optimal temperature is the range in which the yeast performs best without putting off any off-flavors. Pitching the yeast into wort usually happens at the low end of the temperature range.
