WLP618 Saccharomycodes Ludwigii - White Labs Vault Series
Limited maltose and maltotriose consumption.
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 it’s 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 to be 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. STA1: Negative
- Attenuation: 20 %
- Flocculation: Med
- Optimum Fermentation Temp: 68 - 75°F
*NOTE:*During summer months, we include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeast orders. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will stay frozen given transit times and particularly hot temperatures. For this reason, we recommend ordering dry yeast during summer months.
