WLP618 is a VAULT Yeast and may not be in production at time of ordering.

We will check and call you with an update.

WLP618 Saccharomycodes Ludwigii: This strain of non-conventional brewing yeast has been found to be useful when brewing a low alcohol beer. This specific strain has been chosen because of its lower ethyl acetate production compared to similar strains. This species does not ferment maltose or other larger sugars and will only ferment the glucose, sucrose, and fructose. This strain is appropriate for all styles of low alcohol beer. Although this would be categorized as a wild yeast, this strain would not typically be considered a beer spoiler as it does not have the ability to ferment larger sugars. Using this strain to create a low alcohol beer requires a modified recipe.

Recommended For: Low ABV Beers

Attenuation: 20%

Flocculation: Medium

Optimum Fermentation Temp: 68 75F, 20 24C

Alcohol Tolerance: Low (2 5%)

STA1: Negative

Concerned about shipping? Don`t be! We ship all of our liquid yeast with ice packs.

Each vial or pouch of White Labs liquid yeast is designed to be used directly in 5 gallons of wort, hence the term `pitchable yeast.` Each vial is equivalent in cell count to a pint starter or 75-150 billion cells. One vial will usually start fermentation in a 5 gallon batch in 5-15 hours at 70F. If a faster start is desired or if initial gravity is over 1.070 we recommend a 1-2 pint starter be made or add a second vial or pouch of yeast.
