This yeast is an insane wort attenuator. Napoleon will destroy the sugars in your saison and farmhouse beers €“ even the ones in which most brewer€™s strains have no interest. When all is said and done, Napoleon produces very dry, crisp beers with nice citrus aromas. Yeast settling times can be long, usually requiring filtration for bright beers.
Temp: 65-78F, 18-26C // Flocculation: Low // Attenuation: 77-83%
This strain tests positive for the STA 1 gene via PCR analysis and is therefore considered to be Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus
Certified Organic Brewing Yeast Info & More:
All of our yeast is stored cold and rotated properly to ensure you get the freshest, most active yeast possible. Your order with liquid yeast may be delayed or altered, or split-shipped due to weather conditions, especially during the hot summer months. We may delay shipment to avoid sitting over the weekend or holidays and will contact you if there are any special circumstances.
We recommend purchasing a proper cold-pack to keep your yeast order as cold as possible during shipment. Remember, we can replace a packet of yeast if needed, however, we cannot replace an entire batch of beer so we recommend shipping with an ice pack and proofing your yeast before pitching.
