This strain is ideal for producing malty lagers. Residual sweetness further helps promote malt nuances while contributing to a balanced finish. The first generation of this strain can be slow, so we encourage using a larger initial culture or scheduling longer fermentation and conditioning times. Great for lagers with a wide gravity range including bocks, doppelbocks, märzens, Oktoberfests and American amber lagers.
PurePitch® Next Generation combines the ease of a bottle and the innovation of PurePitch®, offering a modular pouch with a cap and a consistent cell concentration intended to pitch at 7.5 million cells/ mL; a commercially recommended pitching rate to ensure a foolproof fermentation.
