Active dry yeast and is recommended for use in the production of grain whisky by fermentation of wort made from wheat or maize. It contains a selected strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae distillers’ yeast in a highly concentrated and stable form.
Temp Range 20°C – 34°C
American style Whisky
Short lag phase
Recommended for use in the production of whisky and whiskey by fermentation of wort made from wheat or corn. It is also suitable for the production of American style whiskies from various whole grain fermentation’s. Displays a short lag phase and ensures a very quick start of fermentation which reduces the risks of contamination by wild yeast and bacteria. Boasting a good temperature tolerance and performs well from 20°C up to 34°C.Producing a clean congener profile that is well-suited to grain whisky and whiskey.
The optimal yeast dosage is variable according to individual distillery production processes.
Fermentation of malted barley for whisky production: 0.50 – 1.0 grams per litre of wort.
Fermentation of on grain mashes for whiskey production: 0.25 – 0.50 grams per litre of mash.
Instructions for Use:
For re-hydration, use a clean container. Do not use demineralized water. Re-hydrate the yeast in clean water (the water should be 10 times the weight of the yeast and at a temperature of 32°C – 36°C).Suspend contents carefully by gently stirring and then wait for 15 – 20 minutes maximum (minimum 10 minutes) before moving onto the next step.
Add this preparation to the wash. If there is a temperature difference of more than 8°C between the wash to be inoculated and the re-hydration solution, add some wash slowly into the re-hydration solution to reduce the temperature difference.
