Lallemand Lalbrew Novalager™ Yeast 11g


LalBrew NovaLager™ is a true bottom fermenting Saccharomyces pastorianus hybrid that has been selected to produce clean lager beers with distinct flavor characteristics and superior fermentation performance. The distinct flavor profile is very clean, slight esters over a wide temperature range.

This strain is a low VDK/diacetyl producer and utilizes patented technology from the University of California Davis (USA) to ensure that the strain will not produce hydrogen sulfide (H2S) off-flavors, therefore reducing the maturation time associated with lager beer production.
