Bohemian Lager Yeast from Mangrove Jack

Bohemian Lager (M84)

From: Mangrove Jack
Type: Yeast  •  Packet: Dry
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae

A bottom-fermenting lager yeast characterised by its dry and clean palate typical of traditional Czech brewing. Produces soft, delicate and well balanced beers. Hop and malt character will be enhanced and supported by moderate to full body. In wort with simple malt bills, delicate malt flavours will survive. Beer fermented with this strain is generally rich and chewy without being heavy at all. Light and delicately balanced beers call for this strain. Lagering periods as short as 4 weeks may produce acceptable beer but allowing it to lager for 6-8 weeks, will result in beer that is richer and smoother with a more refined aroma and flavour.

Brewing Properties of Bohemian Lager

The functional properties of brewing yeasts have a direct impact on the performance, quality and economics of the resulting beer.

Alcohol Tolerance
The alcohol tolerance determines the ABV at which yeast cells go dormant and stop fermenting.
Unknown
Attenuation
Attenuation refers to the percentage of sugars converted to alcohol and carbon dioxide, as measured by specific gravity.
72-76%
Flocculation
Flocculation refers to the tendency of yeast to form clumps called "flocs" that drop in order to make the beer clear.
High
Optimal Temperature
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.
50-59° F
(10-15° C)
