Lalbrew Premium Series New England American East Coast Ale Yeast

Lalbrew Premium Series New England American East Coast Ale Yeast via Adventures in Homebrewing

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Lalbrew New England American East Coast Ale Yeast

New England American East Coast Ale Yeast

Species : Ale
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 59-72
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : Medium to High
Flocculation : Medium
Alcohol Tolerance : Up to 9% ABV

Pitching/Fermentation : The aroma is fruit, with specific notes of stone and tropical fruits

Notes : LalBrew New England is an ale strain selected specifically for its ability to produce a unique fruit-forward ester profile desired in East Coast styles of beer. A typical fermentation with LalBrew New England will produce tropical and fruity esters, notably stone fruits like peach. Through expression of a ß-glucosidase enzyme, LalBrew New England can promote hop biotransformation and accentuate hop flavor and aroma. LalBrew New England exhibits medium to high attenuation with medium flocculation, making it a perfect choice for East Coast style ales.

Best Styles : NEIPA, East Coast Style Ales


 

This is a dry version of Conan, the strain used by Alchemist Brewing for their wildly popular Heady Topper.

As of this posting, this is selling for $8. Check product page for current price and availability.
