Typical Analysis of LalBrew Voss™ 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.
In Lallemand’s Standard Conditions Wort at 68°F (20°C) LalBrew Voss™ yeast exhibits:
- Fermentation that can be completed in:
- 2 days at 104°F (40°C)
- 3-4 days at 86°F (30°C)
- 5-7 days at 77°F (25°C)
- Medium to high attenuation and very high flocculation.
- Neutral flavor profile across the temperature range with notes of orange and citrus.
- The optimal temperature range for LalBrew Voss™ yeast when producing traditional styles is 95-104°F (35-40°C).
Lag phase, total fermentation time, attenuation, and flavor are dependent on pitch rate, yeast handling, fermentation temperature and nutritional quality of the wort. Our research suggests that pitching LalBrew Voss™ directly into wort without prior rehydration will often result in better performance including shorter lag-phase and greater attenuation.

Why Dry Yeast?
Yeast regularly contains under 7% water while dry brewing. Rigid standards of quality are upheld during processing to refrain from microbial pollution. The exceptional strength of dry yeast takes into account rigorous QC testing to guarantee that under 1 wild yeast cell or bacterium per million cells of yeast is detected while brewing.
When it comes to most strains, 1g of dry yeast includes at least 5 billion suitable cells; however, the figure will shift marginally depending on the batch. Please contact us with any questions.
