Fermentis Saflager S-189 is an ideal lager strain for many lager and pilsner beers. It can ferment well within the temperature range of 48-72° F, but is ideally fermented between the tighter range of 53-59° F. Highly flocculant, this yeast falls out of suspension easy resulting in brilliantly clear beer. A great choice as a very tolerant strain that makes great lagers.
This is designed as a directly pitchable yeast and there are no rehydration instructions.
Some basic instructions for rehydrating yeasts: rehydrate yeast in 4 oz of warm water between 95 and 104°F. Do not stir. Let stand for 15 minutes. Stir gently. Add an equal amount of wort to your solution. Cover, let sit for five minutes, and pitch.
