Product Details

This signature strain, from Charlie Papazian, has the ability to ferment at both ale and lager temperatures allowing the brewer to produce diverse beer styles. The recipes in both Papazian's books, The Complete Joy of Homebrewing and The Homebrewers Companion, were originally developed and brewed with this yeast. Papazian has had "Cry Havoc" in his yeast stable since 1983. 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. 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 fermentation times may be experienced compared to other lagers. Some fermentation circumstances may produce sulfur aroma compounds, but these will usually dissipate with time. Good yeast for bottle conditioning. Apparent attenuation: 66-70%. Flocculation: medium-low. Optimum temp: 55°-74° F

Loved it !!
Brewed your speckled heifer all grain kit using this yeast at lager temperatures. It turned out awesome. Two weeks in the primary , three weeks in the secondary at 33 degrees. Great session beer .

In Charlie P. I Trust
Charlie Papzian's proprietary yeast strain is outstanding. I brewed what was meant to be a pale ale and fermented with this yeast. It was aged at temps more in line with a Scottish ale, about 58 degrees. The result went way beyond my expectations. The flavor profile had characteristics of both ale and lager yeasts. It was really kind of mind-blowing.

I HAVE USED THIS STRAIN TWICE NOW AND HAVE THOROUGHLY ENJOYED IT. tHE TEMP RANGE IS PERFECT FOR ME, SINCE I HAVE A GHETTO LAGER SETUP; I.E. NEXT TO THE A.C.. great LAGER FLAVOR WITH THE TEMP FORGIVING TRAITS OF AN ALE. AVERAGE TEMP WAS 64 DEGREES WITH BENEFICIAL RESULTS
