Safbrew F-2 has been selected specifically for secondary fermentation in bottle and in cask. This yeast assimilates very little maltotriose but assimilates basic sugars (glucose, fructose, saccharose, maltose) and is characterized by a neutral aroma profile respecting the base beer character.
Optimum Ferm Temp: 15-25°C (59-77°F)
Rehydration instructions: Safbrew F-2 should not be rehydrated directly in the beer. Sprinkle the yeast in minimum 10 times its weight of sterile water at a temperature of 27°C ± 3°C (80°F ± 6°F). Leave to rest 15 to 30 minutes. Gently stir.
How To Use: After rehydrating add 5 to 10 grams of sugar per liter of beer to obtain a saturation of 2.5 to 5.0 g/l of CO2. Pitch the sweetened starter at fermentation temperature of 20-25°C. Carbonation will be achieved in 1 to 2 weeks at 20-25°C* At the end of refermentation, the beer can be cooled down and will gain in roundness after 2 to 3 weeks.
