Novalager Hybrid Yeast 11G

LalBrew NovaLager™ is a true bottom fermenting Saccharomyces pastorianus hybrid from the novel Group III (Renaissance) lineage that has been selected to produce clean lager beers with distinct flavour characteristics and superior fermentation performance. LalBrew NovaLager™ is a robust lager strain with ideal characteristics for lager beer production including fast fermentations and high attenuation. The distinct flavour profile is very clean, slight esters over a wide temperature range. Through expression of a β-glucosidase enzyme, LalBrew NovaLager™ can promote hop biotransformation and accentuate hop flavour and aroma. This product is the result of the research and development work of Renaissance Bioscience Corp. (Vancouver BC, Canada) in partnership with Lallemand Brewing. LalBrew NovaLager™ was selected using classical and non-GMO breeding methods to obtain a novel Saccharomyces cerevisiae x Saccharomyces eubayanus hybrid strain that defines a novel Group III (Renaissance) lager lineage that is distinct from any other traditional Saccharomyces pastorianus strains. 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 sulphide (H2 S) off Flavors, therefore reducing the maturation time associated with lager beer production

 

The pitch rate will affect the fermentation performance and flavour of the beer. For LalBrew NovaLager™ yeast, a pitch rate of 50 – 100g per hL of wort is sufficient to achieve optimal results for most fermentations. More stressful fermentations such as high gravity, high adjunct or high acidity may require higher pitch rates and additional nutrients to ensure a healthy fermentation. LalBrew NovaLager™ may be re-pitched just as you would any other type of yeast according to your brewery’s SOP for yeast handling. Wort aeration is required when re-pitching dry yeast.


Recommended Fermenter

Research has shown that in order to extract the most flavour from hops and yeast, and to minimise contact with oxygen, pressure fermenters are the best fermenters for any style of beer which is why the manufacturer recommends to use one of the below fermenters:

In Lallemand’s Standard Conditions Wort at 12°C (53.6°F) LalBrew NovaLager™ yeast exhibits: Vigorous fermentation that can be completed in 6 days. 

High Attenuation and Medium Flocculation. 

Aroma and flavor are clean with low to medium ester, no sulfur. This strain is POF negative. 

The optimal temperature range for LalBrew NovaLager™ yeast when producing traditional styles is 10 – 20°C (50 – 68°F). 

Lag phase, total fermentation time, attenuation and flavor are dependent on pitch rate, yeast handling, fermentation temperature and nutritional quality of the wort. 

Dry Yeast Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find the questions we get asked the most regarding our dry yeasts.
Please click on one of the questions below to see the answer.

Dry Yeast Usage

Is it recommended to rehydrate dry yeast?

A big part of homebrewing comes down to what works best for you and also following producers' recommendations. We would encourage you to read instructions before use.

Do I need to rehydrate the yeast before pitching?

Typically, dry yeasts do not need to be rehydrated before use and can be pitched directly into our fermenters. However, some brewers prefer to rehydrate dry yeasts as they think it speeds up the start of fermentation.

How do I rehydrate dry yeast?

To rehydrate yeast, simply add around 300ml of lukewarm water to a sanitised conatainer, and add the content of the packet then cover with a layer of tin foil. You will notice that after an hour or so, the yeast will start to buble and activate.

Storage Recommendation

How do I store my dry yeast?

Store in the fridge or dry and cool place.

How long can I store my dry yeast for?

Dry yeast can be stored for extended periods of time. Please refer to the package for the best before date.
