• Classified as Saccharomyces cerevisiae • A top fermenting yeast. • The active dried strain has a typical analysis: Percent solids 93 – 95 % Living yeast cells ≥ 5 x 109 per gram of dry yeast Wild yeast < 1 per 106 yeast cells* (Lysine method) Bacteria < 1 per 106 yeast cells* • Finished products are only released to the market after passing a rigorous series of tests. *according to ASBC and EBC methods of analysis
• Quick start and vigorous fermentation, which can be completed in 4 days above 17 °C. • Medium to high attenuation, • Fermentation rate, fermentation time and degree of attenuation are dependent upon inoculation density, yeast handling, fermentation temperature and the nutritional quality of the wort. • BRY-97 American West Coast Yeast is a flocculent strain. Settling can be promoted by cooling and use of fining agents and isinglass. • The aroma is slightly estery, almost neutral and does not display malodours when properly handled. It may tend, because of flocculation, to slightly reduce hop bitter levels • Best when used at traditional ale temperatures after re-hydration in the recommended manner.
