A yeast isolated from Australia in the early 1900s. Melbourne Ale Yeast is a clean fermenting strain which is well-suited for many American and English beer styles.
“We used this strain in an espresso porter and were very pleased with the results. Thanks to its medium to medium-high flocculation, it made clarifying the beer easy and we liked how the strain accentuated leather, oak and cinnamon notes in the finished beer. The gravity dropped slightly less at the 24-hour mark than the other strains we used for this batch, and the beer was able to hit terminal around day 10.” --Jason Wyatt, White Labs Brewer
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 68-72°F
Alcohol Tolerance: Medium High
Attenuation? = Forgæringsgrad, hvor meget sukker kan gæren omsætte til alkohol (Co2 og smag)
Flocculation? = Gærens evne til at samle sig og bundfældes, og på den måde opnå en mere klar øl.
