CBC-1 has been specially selected for its refermentation properties and is recommended for Cask and Bottle Conditioning. CBC-1 referments beers up to 12-14% ABV due to its high resistance to alcohol and pressure; it does not produce flavors that will affect the original character of the beer.
The yeast will settle and form a tight mat at the end of the refermentation. CBC-1 can also be used for primary fermentation and is especially suitable for Champagne-like beers and fruit beers. CBC-1 will ferment and referment within a range of temperature of 15° to 25°C (59° to 77°F). This particular strain has also been extensively tested for high gravity brewing to produce flavored-alcohol beverages.
If you are adding this to bottle or cask condition please make sure to re-hydrate the yeast in sterile water per the directions on the pack.
