Description

  • LalBrew NovaLager™ is a robust lager strain with ideal characteristics for lager beer production including fast fermentations and high attenuation
  • The distinct flavor profile is very clean, slight esters over a wide temperature range
  • A true bottom-fermenting Saccharomyces pastorianus hybrid that produces clean lager beers with distinct flavor characteristics and superior fermentation performance
  • Lallemand premium brewing yeast offers brewers unmatched consistency, reliability and purity from one batch of beer to the next

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 flavor characteristics and superior fermentation performance. LalBrew NovoLager is a robust lager strain with ideal characteristics for lager beer production including fast fermentations, high attenuation and high flocculation. The distinct flavor 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 flavor 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 sulfide (H2S) off-flavors, therefore reducing the maturation time associated with lager beer production.

Beer Styles: Lagers
Aroma: Clean, low to medium ester, no sulfur
Attenuation: 78-84%
Fermentation Range: 50-68°F (10-20°C)
Flocculation: High
Alcohol Tolerance: 13% ABV

Would NovaLager yeast under pressure at 72F be acceptable for this kit?

Super Lager Yeast!
I fermented a Mexican lager with this strain at 66f . The beer finished out at 1.009 after 6 days. I was very impressed on how clean this lager was fermented at ale temps, no detectable sulfur or diacetyl. Ferments like an ale , tastes like a lager! This will prob be go to strain since I only ferment lagers at ale temps .
