LalBrew® CBC-1 Cask & Bottle Conditioning Yeast - Lallemand

LalBrew® CBC-1 Cask & Bottle Conditioning Yeast - Lallemand

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

The true solution to under carbonated, bottle conditioned beers! CBC-1 is a great choice for fermenting beers destined for bottle conditioning, especially higher-alcohol styles. A fast starter and robust strain which can be used to ferment/re-ferment beers up to 14% ABV. The flavor is neutral, therefore the original character of the beer is preserved. The yeast will settle and form a tight mat at the end of refermentation. LalBrew® CBC-1 can also be used for primary fermentation of dry ciders or mead. Maltotriose is not metabolized during primary fermentation of beer, so LalBrew® CBC-1 is well suited for sweeter fruit beers or fullbodied, malty ales.

Primary Beer Styles: fruit beers, full-bodied, malty beers, dry cider and mead
Bottle Conditioning: all beer styles
Aroma: Neutral
Fermentation Range: Primary 68°F (Refermentation: 59-77°F)
Alcohol Tolerance: Primary 18% ABV (Refermentation: 12-14% ABV)

*See the technical data sheet below for information on rehydration, usage and storage.

Whenever I make a RIS or barleywine I like to bottle condition at least half of it and the yeast makes sure it will carbonate.

Better carbonation in high ABV beers
It's my second purchase for my high gravity beers. I learned a lot from my first use.

Works as advertised
Used 2 g. of this along with 200 g sugar to keg-carbonate a 3 gal. keg of Saison. Wrapped keg with a heat mat and like magic, in 2 weeks, the keg was up to 40 psi. Nicely carbonated after chilling the keg to 40 degrees.

Re-pitch for bottle-priming
I have used this yeast several times for bottling big beers or beers that have aged a long time. I never want to rely on the fermentation yeast having enough life left to bottle prime. Fresh yeast gets it carbed up, no problemo. Rehydrate in a few ozs of water and pitch into the beer in the bottling bucket. Give it a gentle stir and bottle.

Good conditioning yeast
Use it for keg conditioning IPAs. Ferments up the priming sugar in 7-10 days so it does work fast. Have not noticed it imparting any new yeast flavors from using it as a conditioning yeast.

It Works Every Time
CBC-1 is now a standard part of my brewing procedure, I use it every time I bottle. Say goodbye to flat beer.
