Lallemand Brewing has just launched a true bottom-fermenting yeast strain that produces a clean, unique lager profile with high attenuation and high flocculation. LalBrew NovaLager™ is a Saccharomyces pastorianus hybrid (non-GMO), selected to produce clean lager-style beers with the optimal fermentation performance of ale yeast.
Flocculation is the tendency of yeast cells to aggregate together, forming a multicellular mass and sedimenting rapidly from the suspended medium or rising to the surface.
