Saflager S-23 is a bottom fermenting yeast originating from Berlin, Germany. This yeast is great for the production of fruity and estery lagers. Its lower attenuation profile gives beers with a good length on the palate.
Optimum Ferm Temp: 9-22°C (48.2-71.6°F) ideally 12-15°C (53.6-59°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.
This strain exhibits classic dry Belgian flavours, and displays an aggressive primary fermentation. We especially like this strain for Strong Golden, Tripel, and other Belgian-style beers. NOTE: This strain contains...
This strain produces ales with a full chewy malt flavor and character, but finishes dry, producing famously balanced beers. Expect moderate nutty and stone-fruit esters. Best used for the production...
