From: Escarpment Labs
Type: Yeast • Packet: Liquid
Species: Saccharomyces pastorianus
One of our favourite German lager yeasts! Accentuates malt character, with a reliable fermentation profile and good flocculation and diacetyl reduction. We recommend raising fermentation temperature to 15ºC toward the end of fermentation in order to ensure full attenuation and diacetyl reduction. Can be used for both traditional and fast turnaround lagers.
Brewing Properties of Isar Lager
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.
