Description

The California Common or Steam beer, made famous by Anchor Brewing Company, is the quintessential example of the style behind this strain.  A hybrid lager strain that performs well at ale temperatures and demonstrates a full and provacative flavor profile.  An absolute must for San Francisco style lagers! Don't forget your Northern Brewer hops!

This strain is particularly well suited for producing 19th century-style West Coast beers with woody/minty hop flavor. It retains lager characteristics at temperatures up to 65°F (18°C) and produces malty, brilliantly clear beers. This strain is not recommended for cold temperature fermentation.

Origin:
Flocculation: high
Attenuation: 67-71%
Temperature Range: 58-68° F (14-20° C)
Alcohol Tolerance: approximately 9% ABV


Styles:
Baltic Porter
California Common Beer
Christmas/Winter Specialty Spiced Beer
Cream Ale
Other Smoked Beer
Premium American Lager
Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer

For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast.

This lager yeast will work at 63 degrees. That is the temp of my basement in winter.

Excellent choice
You can brew a real lager with this yeast without the extra pitching rate necessary when you ferment at cooler temps. Makes brewing cleaner beers easier.

Vigorous performer
I used this as an addition to a slow lager fermentation and it seemed to work very well - finished off the ferment and dropped out the previous pitch of (different) yeast to leave a clean clear lager

Great Product
