* Attenuation was measured after 8 days with Ale yeast at 70°F and Lager yeast at 50°F. Medium Gravity is 14° – 16°Plato. High Gravity is 23°- 25°Plato.
† The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style. As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68° – 72°F and then lower or raise temp as desired. Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 45° – 58°F. If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a “hot start” at 65°-68°F and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20hrs).
