pictured: – via amazon

Part of Our Homebrew Tips and Tricks Series.  Check out the complete list – Homebrewing Tips, Tricks & Shortcuts!


  • Note: This tip involves handling hot items.  Always use extreme caution when handling hot items to avoid being scalded.
  • These containers are generally food safe and microwave safe.
  • They also, generally, have tight lids.  Lids are either not quite airtight – That’s perfect for storing a yeast cake for your next batch as, the yeast may need to off-gas – Or airtight – That’s okay too as popping a lid off one of these isn’t usually a huge deal.
  • You can sanitize these by microwaving some water in them.  Place the lid loosely on top so that it can get sanitized by steam.  Be very careful around boiling water and steam, you can get hurt.  Or, santize with your favorite food grade homebrew sanitizer.
  • These type of containers are also handy for general storage, rehydrating yeast, sample collection and lots more.  Non-brewing related bonus… these are great for giving food-stuffs away as they are economical enough that you don’t need to worry about getting your container back.
  • There are many offerings for these types of containers and they can change quickly.  Search Amazon to see what’s out there.  Some things to look for – food safe materials, microwave safe and tight fitting lids.

Lallemand New England East Coast Yeast, 11 Gram – Dry version of Conan Strain – Free Shipping to US Addresses, No Minimum

lallemand new england east coast american ale yeast 11 gram via label peelers

More Info

from the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Lallemand New England East Coast American Ale Yeast 11 Gram
Product Description
LalBrewTM New England is an ale strain selected specifically for its ability to produce a unique fruit-forward ester profile desired in East Coast styles of beer. A typical fermentation with LalBrewTM New England will produce tropical and fruity esters, notably stone fruits like peach. Through expression of a β-glucosidase enzyme, LalBrewTM New England can promote hop biotransformation and accentuate hop flavor and aroma. LalBrewTM New England exhibits medium to high attenuation with medium flocculation, making it a perfect choice for East Coast style ales.

brewing properties:

in lallemand’s standard conditions wort at 20°c (68°f) lalbrewtm new england yeast exhibits: fermentation that can be completed in 7 days, a bit slower than most ale strains. this is perfectly characteristic of this strain. medium to high attenuation and medium flocculation fruity aroma, notably tropical and stone fruit the optimal temperature range for lalbrewtm new england yeast when producing traditional styles is 15°c (59°f)* to 22°c (72°f) lag phase can be longer compared to other ale strains, ranging from 18-36 hours lag phase, total fermentation time, attenuation and flavor are dependent on pitch rate, yeast handling, fermentation temperature and nutritional quality of the wort. if you have questions please do not hesitate to contact us at brewing@lallemand.com

usage:

the pitch rate will affect the fermentation performance and flavor of the beer. for lalbrewtm new england yeast, a pitch rate of 100g per hl of wort is sufficient to achieve a minimum of 1 million viable cells/ml. more stressful fermentations such as high gravity, high adjunct or high acidity may require higher pitch rates and additional nutrients to ensure a healthy fermentation. find your exact recommended pitching rate with our pitch rate calculator in our brewers corner at www.lallemandbrewing.com lalbrewtm new england may be re-pitched just as you would any other type of yeast according to your brewery’s sop for yeast handling. wort aeration is required when re-pitching dry yeast.

storage:

lalbrewtm new england yeast should be stored in a vacuum sealed package in dry conditions below 4c° (39°f). lalbrewtm new england will rapidly lose activity after exposure to air. do not use 500g or 11g packs that have lost vacuum. opened packs must be re-sealed, stored in dry conditions below 4°c (39°f), and used within 3 days. if the opened package is re-sealed under vacuum immediately after opening, yeast can be stored below 4c° (39°f) until the indicated expiry date. do not use yeast after expiry date printed on the pack. performance is guaranteed when stored correctly and before the expiry date. however, lallemand dry brewing yeast is very robust and some strains can tolerate brief periods under sub-optimal conditions. if you have questions, do not hesitate to contact us. we have a team of technical representatives happy to help and guide you in your fermentation journey

rehydration:

rehydration of lalbrewtm new england in sterile water is recommended prior to pitching into wort in order to reduce stress on the cell as it transitions from dry to liquid form. for many fermentations, this stress is not significant enough to affect fermentation performance and flavor, so good results may also be achieved when pitching dry yeast directly into wort. we highly recommend rehydration in harsher fermentation conditions such as high gravity or sour wort where the added stress of dry-pitching is more likely to have a greater impact on the finished beer. use of a rehydration nutrient such as go-ferm protect evolution has been shown to improve fermentation performance for difficult fermentations. rehydration guidelines are quite simple and present a much lower risk of contamination than a starter, which is unnecessary when using the recommended pitch rate of dried active yeast. sprinkle the yeast on the surface of 10 times its weight in clean, sterilized water at 30-35°c (86-95f). do not use wort, or distilled or reverse osmosis water, as loss in viability may result. stir gently, leave undisturbed for 15 minutes, then stir to suspend yeast completely. leave it to rest for 5 more minutes at 30-35°c. without delay, adjust the temperature to that of the wort by mixing aliquots of wort with the rehydrated yeast. wort should be added in 5 minute intervals and taking care not to lower the temperature by more than 10°c at a time. temperature shock of >10°c will cause formation of petite mutants leading to extended or incomplete fermentation and possible formation of undesirable flavors. do not allow attemperation to be carried out by natural heat loss. this will take too long and could result in loss of viability or vitality. inoculate without delay into cooled wort in the fermenter. lalbrewtm new england yeast has been conditioned to survive rehydration. the yeast contains an adequate reserve of carbohydrates and unsaturated fatty acids to achieve active growth. it is unnecessary to aerate wort upon first use.
