Saflager S-189 Lager Yeast - Fermentis
Earn 6 points on this item.
Fermentis Saflager S-189 is an ideal lager strain for many lager and pilsner beers. It can ferment well within the temperature range of 48-72° F, but is ideally fermented between the tighter range of 53-59° F. Highly flocculant, this yeast falls out of suspension easy resulting in brilliantly clear beer. A great choice as a very tolerant strain that makes great lagers.
This yeast can be pitched directly, but if you prefer to rehydrate, the instructions are below.
Sprinkle the yeast in a minimum of 10 times its weight of sterile water or wort (we suggest 4 oz) at 70°F to 77°F (21 to 25 °C). Do not stir. Leave to rest 15 to 30 minutes. Gently stir for 30 minutes, and pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel.
