BREWER’S YEAST FOR FRUITY & HOPPY LAGERS

Bottom fermenting brewer’s yeast originating from Berlin in Germany. It’s recommended for the production of fruitier and more estery lagers. Its profile gives beers with a good length on the palate. Widely used by European commercial breweries. Best when fermented at low temperatures, yet can ferment at higher temperatures (61-68° F).

S-23 is a genuine German style dried lager yeast, developing the best of its lager notes under low-temperature fermentation (50-57° F). Good flocculation with excellent attenuation.

Yeast Features:

  • Ideal Fermentation Temperature: 53–59F 
  • Attenuation: 80–84%
  • Alcohol Tolerance: 9-11%

Perfect strain to ferment:

  • Czech Pilsners
  • American Lagers
  • Pre-Prohibition Lagers
  • International Lagers

Unique lager yeast

I have used this yeast several times with good results. Final gravity is a little higher than 34/70 in my experience, but the it makes a fine lager when used properly. I always rehydrate dry yeast and pitch lager yeast double the rate of ale yeast. I ferment in the 54-55F range and have never had a problem. I use this in czech lagers etc, something where a little yeast flavor/aroma won't be as noticeable, but ok (I like a lot of sazz in my czech lagers:)
