SafBrew HA-18 (HA-18)
Type: Yeast • Packet: Dry
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae
SafBrew HA-18 is a powerful solution (consisting of POF+ Active Dry Brewer's Yeast and enzymes) for the production of high-gravity and particularly high alcoholic beers - such as strong ales, barley wines and barrel aged beers with very high density. It has a very good resistance to osmotic pressure and high fermentation temperatures (thermotolerant yeast).
Brewing Properties of SafBrew HA-18
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.
