CBC-1 has been specifically selected from the Lallemand Yeast Collection for its refermentation properties and is recommended for Cask and Bottle Conditioning. CBC-1 referments beer efficiently due to its high resistance to alcohol and pressure; the flavor is neutral therefore conserving the original character of the beer. The yeast will settle and form a tight mat at the end of refermentation. CBC-1 can also be used for primary fermentation of Champagne-like beers, fruit beers and cider.
The optimal temperature range for CBC-1 yeast when refermenting is 15°C(59°F) to 25°C(77°F). The optimal temperature for primary fermentation with CBC-1 yeast when producing traditional styles is 20°C(72°F).
