The Yeast Bay Franconian Dark Lager
The Yeast Bay Franconian Dark Lager:
Franconian Dark Lager is a single strain of Saccharomyces pastorianus that hails from the Franconia region of Germany. This yeast exhibits a short lag time and has flavor profile characteristics that complement dark, roasted malts.
We recommend a brief diacetyl rest at ~ 60-65 ºF (2-3 days) at the end of primary fermentation. An extended lagering phase at 33-35 ºF will encourage the yeast to settle and create a clean profile.
Flocculation: Medium to low
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 48-51°F (9-11°C)
