LalBrew CBC-1™ – Cask & Bottle Conditioning Yeast

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 well suited for primary fermentation of sweeter fruit beers or full-bodied, malty ales.
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 CBC-1, extra care should be taken to ensure proper cleaning procedures are in place to avoid any cross contamination with other brews.

 

Primary Fermentation

In Lallemand’s Standard Conditions Wort at
20°C (68°F) LalBrew CBC-1 yeast exhibits:
Vigorous fermentation that can be completed in 3 days
Neutral aroma and flavor

 

LalBrew CBC-1 does not utilize the sugar maltotriose (a molecule composed of 3 glucose units), and the result will be fuller body and residual sweetness in beer. Be advised to adjust mash temperatures
according to desired result
The optimal temperature for primary fermentation with CBC-1 yeast when
producing traditional styles is 20°C(72°F)

 

Refermentation

Best used for refermentation purpose conducted preferably with priming sugars such as dextrose.
Refermentation can be completed in 2 weeks at the recommended temperatures.
The optimal temperature range for CBC-1 yeast when refermenting is 15°C(59°F) to 25°C(77°F).
CBC-1 contains an adequate reservoir of carbohydrates and unsaturated fatty acids, and cell division (typically one division) is likely to occur in the bottle.
Temperature and inoculation rate can be adapted in order to achieve desired results. If the beer is  partially carbonated, the sugar addition can be reduced.
