Lager yeast used to create the California Common beer style. Ferments unusually high for a lager strain and still retains a lager sensibility (up to 68˚F). This yeast leaves a slightly sweeter beer than our other lager yeast— perfect for creating a subtle, malty undertone against a clean lager background. Creates a moderate amount of sulfide under some conditions that will dissipate with a short rest. Fermentations at traditional lager temperatures may be slow. Recommended 55˚- 68˚F.
Attenuation Medium Gravity* 79% – 83%
Attenuation High Gravity* 57% – 60% (7.5% – 8.1% ABV)
Temperature Range†: 55˚F – 70˚F

A Note on Shipping Liquid Yeast: Brewing yeast is not returnable because it is highly perishable. We ship all of our yeasts with an ice pack to help prevent the yeast from incuring any damage due to raises in temperature during shipping. We have a variety of shipping options available for you to choose from. If you are concerned about shipping time, you can also purchase your yeast separately from other items in your cart to help ensure your yeast arrives quickly and safely, or ask for an additional icepack to be shipped with your yeast. The majority of our customers do not have any problems with ground shipping most months out of the year, but if you are in a warm climate far from us, we want to make you aware of your options.
