    • Attenuation Medium Gravity*                        83% – 85%
    • Attenuation High Gravity*                             78% – 81% (9.6% – 10.2% ABV)
    • Temperature Range:                                   65˚F – 80˚F
    • Flocculation:                                                  Low

    Attenuation was measured after 8 days with Ale yeast at 70˚F and Lager yeast at 50˚F.  Medium Gravity is 14˚ – 16˚Plato.  High Gravity is 23˚- 25˚Plato. 

      The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style.  As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68˚ – 72˚F and then lower or raise temp as desired.  Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 45˚ – 58˚F.  If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a “hot start” at 65-68˚F and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20hrs). 

    GigaYeast laboratory is still gathering data on many of our strains.  Information provided here may change some in the future.  Please call if you need more info.
