Description

The true solution to under carbonated, bottle conditioned beers! CBC-1 is a great choice for fermenting beers destined for bottle conditioning, especially higher-alcohol styles. A fast starter and robust strain which can be used to ferment/re-ferment beers up to 14% ABV. The flavor is neutral, therefore the original character of the beer is preserved. The yeast will settle and form a tight mat at the end of refermentation. LalBrew® CBC-1 can also be used for primary fermentation of dry ciders or mead. Maltotriose is not metabolized during primary fermentation of beer, so LalBrew® CBC-1 is well suited for sweeter fruit beers or fullbodied, malty ales.

Primary Beer Styles: fruit beers, full-bodied, malty beers, dry cider and mead
Bottle Conditioning: all beer styles
Aroma: Neutral
Fermentation Range: Primary 68°F (Refermentation: 59-77°F)
Alcohol Tolerance: Primary 18% ABV (Refermentation: 12-14% ABV)

*See the technical data sheet below for information on rehydration, usage and storage.

Have had mediocre luck with consistent carbonation after bottle conditioning. Going to add to my batch and see if it works as advertised!

Whenever I make a RIS or barleywine I like to bottle condition at least half of it and the yeast makes sure it will carbonate.

Re-pitch for bottle-priming
I have used this yeast several times for bottling big beers or beers that have aged a long time. I never want to rely on the fermentation yeast having enough life left to bottle prime. Fresh yeast gets it carbed up, no problemo. Rehydrate in a few ozs of water and pitch into the beer in the bottling bucket. Give it a gentle stir and bottle.

Good conditioning yeast
Use it for keg conditioning IPAs. Ferments up the priming sugar in 7-10 days so it does work fast. Have not noticed it imparting any new yeast flavors from using it as a conditioning yeast.

It Works Every Time
CBC-1 is now a standard part of my brewing procedure, I use it every time I bottle. Say goodbye to flat beer.

The real deal
The true solution to undercarbed bottle conditioned beers. Is truly neutral in contribution to beer flavour. now my beers always carb up consistently.

Exactly as advertisted
Bought this to use as bottling yeast when bottling a 14 month old Oud Bruin. It did a fine job carbonating the beer, and I plan on using this in the future with any other beers I plan on letting ferment for a long period of time.
