Lallemand LalBrew® Novalager™ Hybrid Lager Yeast
LalBrew NovaLager™ is a robust lager strain with ideal characteristics for lager beer production with fast fermentation and high attenuation.
The distinct flavour profile produced by LalBrew® NovaLager™ is very clean, with slight esters over a wide temperature range.
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) that inhibits the production of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) off-flavours, therefore reducing the maturation time associated with lager beer production.
In Lallemand’s Standard Conditions Wort at 12°C (53.6°F) LalBrew NovaLager™ yeast exhibits vigorous fermentation which can be completed in 6 days.
High Attenuation and Medium Flocculation.
Aroma and flavour are clean with low to medium ester, no sulphur. 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 flavour are dependent on pitch rate, yeast handling, fermentation temperature and nutritional quality of the wort.
