White Labs 099 Super High Gravity

$9.95

From England, this yeast can ferment up to 25% alcohol when used correctly. It produces ester characters that increase with increasing gravity. Malt character dominates at lower gravities. To achieve >25% ABV, sugar needs to be fed over the course of the fermentation.

**This strain has been genetically typed and determined WLP099 Super High Gravity Ale Yeast to contain the STA1 gene (glucoamylase), a potential indicator of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus. Brewers yeast are natural hybrids, which make it possible for certain strains to display elements of the STA1 gene. These strains have the ability to utilize some dextrins (unfermentable sugars), resulting in higher levels of attenuation than what is considered typical.

Attenuation: 80% – 100%
Flocculation: Medium
Alcohol Tolerance: Very High (Over 15%)
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 65°F – 69°F
