Product details

LalBrew® CBC-1 Cask and Bottle Conditioning Ale Dry Yeast (Danstar) is a yeast strain designed to ensure adequate carbonation in kegs, casks, or bottles.
A Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast culture specifically chosen for its refermentation quality and performance, this dried yeast is perfectly suited for priming and conditioning in casks, bottles, or kegs. Alcohol tolerance is high, at 12-14%ABV. 

This yeast can also be used for primary fermentation or slow or sluggish fermentations. When used for priming, dextrose (corn sugar) works best - this yeast does not metabolize maltotriose, so wort is not an ideal priming agent.

The recommended inoculation rate is 2 grams per 5 gallons, or approximately 1/2 tsp.

  • Beer Styles: Bottle Conditioning
  • Aroma: Neutral
  • Fermentation Temperature Range: 59 - 68°F
  • Optimum Bottle Conditioning Temp: 59-77° F
  • Alcohol Tolerance: 18% ABV

Saved a 10 gallon batch of beer that hadn't carbonated Added a few grains of yeast to bottle and it carbonated.

Conditioning yeast a hit!

The yeast saved my Irish red ale batch, which had originally turned out flat. The recarbonated brew was excellent!

Pffft!

I add a quarter teaspoon to my primer on the stir plate for a couple of hours before bottling. I found that it helps to rehydrate it, otherwise it settles out during the bottling and gives uneven results. I used to rely heavily on caramalts for head retention and mouthfeel, but I wanted to try for a cleaner, more malt forward brew. I think CBC-1 makes a difference, it's more dependable, and helps keep my brews more true to style. It doesn't over carbonate, it just makes carbonation a bit more dependable. If you bottle condition, give it a try!

Saved my bourbon barrel

Was recommended this to help with the zero carbonation my bourbon barrel ales had going on by Jermey and this worked like a champ. After about 3-4 weeks, I opened a bottle up and it had perfect carbonation.
