WLP618 Saccharomycodes ludwigii
- Reference: WLP618
This strain of non-conventional brewing yeast has been found to be useful when brewing a low alcohol beer. This specific strain has been chosen because of it’s lower ethyl acetate production compared to similar strains. This species does not ferment maltose or other larger sugars and will only ferment the glucose, sucrose, and fructose. This strain is appropriate for all styles of low alcohol beer.
Although this would be categorized as a wild yeast, this strain would not typically be considered to be a beer spoiler as it does not have the ability to ferment larger sugars. Using this strain to create a low alcohol beer requires a modified recipe. STA1: Negative
