Yeasts

Yeast plays an important part in the formation of a beer's flavour profile. While the yeasts supplied with our beer kits are excellent, they are designed to be robust and forgiving, which comes at the price of a more neutral flavour profile. Using a specialized yeast for a given beer style will generally result in a better beer. However keep in mind that with specialized yeasts the fermentation temperature is more critical than with the yeasts supplied with our beer kits.

In order to be able to offer these imported yeasts to our customers at affordable prices, some or all of the yeasts on offer here may have been repacked from bulk, under sterile conditions in multi-layer barrier foils and under vacuum or inert gas, thus preserving quality and purity.

Described as "The hottest new centuries-old yeast you've never heard of" this amazing yeast descends from Norwegian farmhouse ale strains. It has a very high attenuation but at the same time a sweet, estery flavour profile that produces strong, light bodied beers that still seem sweet due to the large amount of fruity notes. It produces more or less similar, clean flavours across a downright spectacular temperature range, which makes it eminently suitable for brewing in the South African summer climate. It also has an excellent flocculation. Suitable not only for traditional farmhouse ales but also for a wide variety of other styles, traditional or not, where a combination of light body, high attenuation and a fruity flavour profile is desired.

  • Fermentation: top
  • Temperature range: 20-40°C
  • Attenuation: 68-80%
  • Flocculation: medium to high
  • Alcohol tolerance: ca. 10% ABV
