Safale K-97

German ale yeast selected for its ability to form a large firm head when fermenting. Suitable to brew ales with low esters and can be used for Belgian type wheat beers. Its lower attenuation profile gives beers with a good length on the palate.

Attenuation: 81%

Flocculation: High

Optimum Ferm Temp:12-25°C (53.6-77°F) ideally 15-22°C (59-71.6°F)

Tip: With all yeast you should do a starter. It will greatly increase the yeast count in your beer and therefore helping to ensure proper attenuation.

Rehydration instructions: Sprinkle the yeast in minimum 10 times its weight of sterile water or wort at 27°C ± 3°C (80°F ± 6°F). Leave to rest 15 to 30 minutes. Gently stir for 30 minutes, and pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel. Alternatively, pitch the yeast directly in the fermentation vessel providing the temperature of the wort is above 20°C (68°F). Progressively sprinkle the dry yeast into the wort ensuring the yeast covers all the surface of wort available in order to avoid clumps. Leave for 30 minutes, then mix the wort using aeration or by wort addition.
