I understand that yeast is close to it's best before date and will require a starter to be made with it before use. It is up to the brewer to determine if this yeast is appropriate for their equipment and techniques.
From a small brewpub in Cologne, Germany, this yeast works great in Kölsh and altbier-style beers. Good for light styles like blondes and honeys. Accentuates hop flavors, similar to WLP001. Minimal sulfur produced during fermentation will disappear with age and leave a super clean, lager-like ale. Does not ferment well below 62°F (17°C) except during peak fermentation.
|Attenuation||72% - 78%|
|Alcohol Tolerance||Medium (5 - 10%)|
|Optimum Fermentation Temperature||18.5°C - 20.5°C (65°F - 69°F)|
