American Lager Yeast GY030
Attenuation Medium Gravity* 79% – 83%
Attenuation High Gravity* 72% – 75% (9.4% – 10.1% ABV)
Temperature Range†: 48˚F – 60˚F
Think you don’t like American Lager? Think again. This yeast is a powerful attenuator that creates a dry lager with a slightly fruity finish and very little sulfide and diacetyl. Perfect for lager styles where you desire a dry, less malty finish.
Lager Styles Black Lager
Pilsner Styles Schwarzbier
* Medium Gravity is 14˚ – 16˚Plato. High Gravity is 23˚- 25˚Plato.
† The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style. As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68˚ – 72˚F and then lower or raise temp as desired. Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 45˚ – 58˚F. If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a “hot start” at 65-68˚F and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20hrs).
