Bottom fermenting German yeast used in commercial breweries around the world. Produces a slightly sweeter but clean beer with a malty finish. Perfect for pilsners, märzen, Festbier etc . May require a diacetyl rest after fermentation.
A diacetyl rest can be performed by raising the temperature of the fermentation to 65-68F for two days near the end of fermentation, allowing the yeast to metabolize the diacetyl.
Strain Origin: Germany
Temperature Range: 50 - 60°F
Attenuation: 74 - 78% (note that attentuation will be much lower when gravity exceeds 1.080)
How to Use
GigaYeast provides a minimum yeast cell count of 200 billion, which is a proper pitching rate for nearly all five gallon batches. These packages contain twice the amount of yeast as Wyeast or White Labs, and that means better fermentations without the need for a starter.
