*According to the ASBC and EBC methods of analysis
In Lallemand’s Standard Conditions Wort at 20°C (68°F) LalBrew® Nottingham yeast exhibits:
- Vigorous fermentation that can be completed in 4 days
- High Attenuation and High Flocculation
- Neutral to slightly fruity and estery flavor and aroma
The optimal temperature range for LalBrew® Nottingham yeast when producing traditional styles is 10°C
(50°F)* to 22°C (72°F)
*at lower temperature it is possible to ferment lager-style beers in all-malt wort within 9 days
Fermentation rate, fermentation time and degree of attenuation are dependent on inoculation density, yeast handling, fermentation temperature and nutritional quality of the wort.
