W165 (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
The W165 is a typical Altbier yeast with a slightly fruity and stringy overall character. Similar to the Kölsch yeast, this strain can be fermented at both high and low temperatures.
The W165 also cuts a fine figure in the production of American Ales and PAs.
- content of esters (depending on the fermentation temperature): low to normal
- normal amount of higher alcohols
- normal settling behaviour
- good diacetyl reduction
- normal to high AV° (approx. 78-82%)
Recommended fermentation temperature for Alt: 16-18°C (15-23°C)
Recommended fermentation temperature for Ale: 18-21°C (15-23°C)
