LalBrew® Novalager Dried Lager Yeast
LalBrew® Novalager Dried Lager Yeast 11 grams
LalBrew® NovaLager™ is a true bottom-fermenting Saccharomyces pastorianus hybrid from the novel Group III lineage that has been selected to produce clean lager beers with distinct flavor characteristics and superior fermentation performance.
LalBrew NovaLager™ is a robust lager strain with ideal characteristics for lager beer production including fast fermentations and high attenuation. The distinct flavor profile is very clean, slight esters over a wide temperature range.
This product is the result of the research and development work of Renaissance Bioscience Corp. (Vancouver BC, Canada) in partnership with Lallemand Brewing.
LalBrew NovaLager™ was selected using classical and non-GMO breeding methods to obtain a novel Saccharomyces cerevisiae x Saccharomyces eubayanus hybrid strain that defines a novel Group III (Renaissance) lager lineage that is distinct from any other traditional Saccharomyces pastorianus strains.
This strain is a low VDK/diacetyl producer and utilizes patented technology from the University of California Davis (USA) that inhibits the production of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) off-flavors, therefore reducing the maturation time associated with lager beer production.
In Lallemand’s Standard Conditions Wort at 12°C (53.6°F) LalBrew NovaLager™ yeast exhibits: Vigorous fermentation that can be completed in 6 days.
High Attenuation and Medium Flocculation.
Aroma and flavor are clean with low to medium ester, no sulfur. This strain is POF negative.
The optimal temperature range for LalBrew NovaLager™ yeast when producing traditional styles is 10 – 20°C (50 – 68°F).
Lag phase, total fermentation time, attenuation and flavor are dependent on pitch rate, yeast handling, fermentation temperature and nutritional quality of the wort.
