Hessian Pils (WLP4035)
From: The Yeast Bay
Type: Yeast • Packet: Liquid
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Hessian Pils is a single strain of Saccharomyces pastorianus that hails from the Hess region of Germany. It exhibits everything you want in a great Pilsner yeast: it's a clean fermenter with low ester formation, exhibits a short lag time, ferments wort quickly and attenuates well even at the low end of the temperature range. These characteristics allow the malt and hop profile to really shine, and creates a crisp finished beer.
Brewing Properties of Hessian Pils
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.
