Franconian Dark Lager (WLP4030)

From: The Yeast Bay
Type: Yeast  •  Packet: Liquid
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Franconian Dark Lager is a single strain of Saccharomyces pastorianus that hails from the Franconia region of Germany. This yeast exhibits a short lag time and has flavor profile characteristics that complement dark, roasted malts. While the dark malt complementarity makes this yeast a perfect fit for any big malt driven dark lagers, it's also able to produce crisp light lagers.

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.
Medium-High%
Attenuation
Attenuation refers to the percentage of sugars converted to alcohol and carbon dioxide, as measured by specific gravity.
74-78%
Flocculation
Flocculation refers to the tendency of yeast to form clumps called "flocs" that drop in order to make the beer clear.
Medium-Low
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.
