GY094 : German Ale Yeast
German Ale Yeast
Attenuation Medium Gravity* 75% - 77%
Attenuation High Gravity* 64% - 68%
Temperature Range† 64˚F – 72˚F
Description: Ale yeast from a traditional Dusseldorf brewery famous for malty, balanced alt-style brews. This yeast creates a lush, malt forward beer with subtle esters of honey, pear and apple. Perfect for Sticke, Dopplesticke and Alt beers but also makes a great choice for any malt forward beer with generous mouthfeel.
Representative Styles: Alt, Sticke, Dopplesticke, malt forward beers
* Attenuation was measured after 8 days with Ale yeast at 70˚F and Lager yeast at 50˚F. Medium Gravity is 14˚ – 16˚Plato. High Gravity is 23˚- 25˚Plato.
† The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style. As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68˚ – 72˚F and then lower or raise temp as desired. Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 45˚ – 58˚F. If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a “hot start” at 65-68˚F and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20hrs).
