Typical Analysis of LalBrew Windsor™ 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 Windsor™ yeast exhibits:
- Vigorous fermentation that can be completed in 3 days.
- Medium attenuation and low flocculation.
- Fruity and estery flavor and aroma, typical of traditional English-style ales.
- The optimal temperature range for LalBrew Windsor™ yeast when producing traditional styles is 59°F (15°C) to 72°F (22°C).
Windsor does not utilize the sugar maltotriose (a molecule composed of 3 glucose units). Maltotriose comprises an average of 10-15% of total sugar in all-malt worts. The result will be fuller body and residual sweetness in the beer. Be advised to adjust mash temperatures according to desired result.
Lag phase, total fermentation time, attenuation, and flavor are dependent on pitch rate, yeast handling, fermentation temperature and nutritional quality of the wort.

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.
