Description

WLP4030 - Franconian Dark Lager

Franconian Dark Lager is a single strain of Saccharomyces pastorianus that hails from the Franconia region of Germany. This yeast exhibits a short lag time and has flavor profile characteristics that complement dark, roasted malts. The dark malt complementing nature of this yeast makes it a perfect fit for any big, malt driven dark lagers. While well-suited for dark lagers, this yeast also performs well in producing lagers derived from a pale worts.


We recommend a brief diacetyl rest at ~15-18.3ºC (60-65ºF) (2-3 days) at the end of primary fermentation. An extended lagering phase at 0.5-1ºC (33-35ºF) will encourage the yeast to settle and create a clean profile.

Attenuation 74% - 78%
Flocculation Medium - Low
Optimum Temperature 9°C - 11°C




Directions:
Use 1 vial per 19L of beer.
Select a strain/blend best suited for your fermentation. 
Store this vial in refrigerator, and remove 3-6 hours priot to use. 
Shake vial well to re-suspend, open cap carefully, add to 19L of aerated/oxygenated wort at 21C. Keep at this temperature until fermentation begins, and then change to desired fermentation temperature. 
One vial will usually start fermentation in 5-15 hours.
Wild yeast ,bacteria and blends may take longer.
The keys to a quick start to fermentation are good aeration / oxygenation and temperature of ~21C at all times until fermentation begins.
If the O.G. is over 1.070
If the yeast is past its 'best before' date
or if a faster start to fermentation is desired, a starter culture can be made.
Starters are not recommended with blends as the proportions of different organisms can be altered.
Best before date is 4 months after bottling.
