SafLager™ S-189

A great yeast for elegant lagers with floral notes

Originating from the Hürlimann brewery in Switzerland. This lager yeast strain’s profile allows to brew fairly neutral flavor beers with a high drinkability. Depending on the conditions, it tends to present noticeable herbal and floral notes to lager beers.

SafBrew LD 20

An All-In-1™ yeast & enzyme blend for lower carb* dry Lager beers

SafBrew™ LD-20 is the perfect choice for the production of very dry and neutral lager beers with reduced residual sugars. SafBrew™ LD-20 is made of both active dry yeast and enzymes and allows the production of beers containing the same level of alcohol with a reduction of up to 20% of carbohydrates including dextrins.

Applied research conducted by Fermentis

To help brewers choose the best yeast for their beers, we started a program called Make Your Choice (the MYC Program) a few years ago. The aim of the program is to guide and inform our customers about the benefits of our yeasts, especially the flavor expressions. It all began with Baseline Flavor & Aromas, a sensory study conducted in a standard condition that mapped the position and representations of all of our beer yeast according to three important fermentation flavor profiles: their fruity, spicy or neutral characters. The second step of the MYC Program consisted of a deeper characterization of each yeast under different fermentation conditions.

With broader technical and organoleptic information, we provide brewers all they need to know about the SafLager™ W-34/70 fermentation behavior and its detailed sensory expression. This is refined information that supports the best and right choice for lager fermentation, in which we evaluate how the parameters (such as wort density, fermentation temperature and pitching rate) could change the neutral fermentation profile of this specific yeast. From the various studied conditions (six are represented below), we obtained a matrix that help us characterize what happens when we change a specific variable.
