Cry Havoc: This signature strain licensed from Charlie Papazian has the ability to ferment at both ale and lager temperatures allowing the brewer to prodic diverse beer styles.
For Ales: When fermented at ale temperatures the yeast produces fruity esters reminiscent of berries and apples. Hop character comes through well with hop accented beers. Diacetyl production will be very low when proper fermentation techniques are used.
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 68-74 F
Optimum Cellaring Temperature: 50-55 F (Alt beers can be cellared as lagering temperatures.)
For Lagers: When fermented at lager temperatures esters are low in high gravity beers and negligible in other beers. Pleasant baked bread-like yeast aroma is often perceived in malt accented lagers. Slightly extended fermenation times may be experienced compares to ther lagers. Some fermentation circumstances may produce sulfur aroma compounds but these will usually dissipate with time. Good yeast for bottle conditioning.
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 55-58¡F
Optimum Lagering Temperature: 32-37¡F
Each vial of White Labs liquid yeast is designed to be used directly in 5 gallons 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 5 gallons in 5-15 hours at 70¡F. If a faster start is desired or if initial gravity is over 1.070 we recommend a 1-2 pint starter be made.
