LalBrew CBC-1 Cask & Bottle Conditioning Yeast (500g)



LalBrew CBC-1™ has been specifically selected from the Lallemand Yeast Culture Collection for Cask and Bottle Conditioning applications due to its high resistance to alcohol and pressure. LalBrew CBC-1™ has a neutral flavor profile and does not metabolize maltotriose, therefore the original character of the beer is preserved after refermentation. The yeast will settle and form a tight mat at the bottom of the bottle or cask. LalBrew CBC-1™ is also an ideal strain for primary fermentation of dry ciders, mead and hard-seltzer. For simple sugar fermentations with appropriate yeast nutrition, LalBrew CBC-1™ achieves high attenuation with a clean and neutral flavor profile.

LalBrew CBC-1™ is a killer yeast, meaning it will secrete a toxic protein that can inhibit killer sensitive strains (most brewing strains are killer sensitive). While this is a positive yeast trait when conducting a pure fermentation/refermentation with LalBrew CBC-1™, extra care should be taken to ensure proper cleaning procedures are in place to avoid any cross-contamination with other brews.
