The new HP Lager strain from White Labs is ideal for fermenting under pressure. When beer is fermented under pressure, it allows for the production of a clean flavor profile, even when fermenting a lager at room temperature. Fermenting under pressure is advantagous in that it reduces ester and fusel alcohol production, reduces or negates the possibility of oxidation, carbonates the beer during fermentation and allows you to ferment warmer than you would otherwise. Check out The Fermentasaurus if you are in the market for an affordable fermentor that holds pressure.
Use to ferment lager beer in one week! Ferment at room temperature (62-68°F) under 1.0 bar (14.7 PSI) until final gravity is obtained, generally in one week. Lager the beer at 35°F, 15 PSI, for 3-5 days, to condition. Sulfur production is strong first 2 days, then disappears by day 5. Do not need to carbonate, since at 1 bar entire time.
Optimum Fermentation Temp: 62-68
For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast.
