Czech Pilsner Yeast GY002
Attenuation Medium Gravity* 75% – 79%
Attenuation High Gravity* 52% – 55% (6.9% – 7.5% ABV)
Temperature Range†: 48˚F – 55˚F
Flocculation: Medium / high
Description: Bottom fermenting yeast from a world famous Czech pilsner. Produces a dry, clean beer. Perfect for pilsner and other lager styles. This yeast is flocculent and produces a very clear beer. Robust attenuation in beer up to 16-17˚ Plato. Moderate to poor attenuation in very high gravity beers (over 20˚ Plato).
Pilsners and Lagers
* Attenuation was measured after 8 days with Ale yeast at 70˚F and Lager yeast at 50˚F. 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).
