Beer Styles: Primary fermentation of fruit beers; full-bodied, malty beers; dry cider; mead. Also use for bottle conditioning for all beer styles.
Fermentation Range: Primary 68°F (20°C). Refermentation 59-77°F (15-25°C)
Alcohol Tolerance: 18% ABV for primary fermentation; 12-14% for refermentation
Pitching Rate: Primary 50-100g/hL. Bottle conditioning 10g/hL.
Classified as Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a top fermenting yeast.
Typical Analysis of LalBrew CBC-1™ Yeast:
- Percent solids: 93% – 97%
- Viability: ≥ 5 x 109 CFU per gram of dry yeast
- Wild Yeast: < 1 per 106 yeast cells
- Diastaticus: Undetectable
- Bacteria: < 1 per 106 yeast cells
Finished product is released to the market only after passing a rigorous series of tests.
LalBrew CBC-1™ is a killer yeast, meaning it will secrete a toxic protein that can inhibit killer sensitive strains. (Most brewing strains are killer sensitive.) While this is a positive yeast trait when conducting a pure fermentation/refermentation with LalBrew CBC-1™, extra care should be taken to ensure proper cleaning procedures are in place to avoid any cross-contamination with other brews.
In Lallemand’s Standard Conditions Wort at 68°F (20°C) LalBrew CBC-1™ yeast exhibits:
- Vigorous fermentation that can be completed in 3 days.
- Neutral aroma and flavor.
- The optimal temperature range for LalBrew CBC-1™ yeast when producing traditional styles is 68°F (20°C).
LalBrew CBC-1™ does not utilize the sugar maltotriose (a molecule composed of 3 glucose units), and the result will be fuller body and residual sweetness in the beer. Adjust mash temperatures accordingly to achieve desired results.
- Best results are achieved when priming the beer with simple sugars such as dextrose.
- Calculate the appropriate priming rate using the Bottle Conditioning Calculator.
- Refermentation can be completed in 2 weeks at the recommended temperatures.
- The optimal refermentation temperature range for LalBrew CBC-1™ yeast is 59-77°F (15-25°C).
- LalBrew CBC-1™ contains an adequate reserve of carbohydrates and unsaturated fatty acids, and cell division (typically one division) is likely to occur in the bottle.
