Hops

In the table I have listed the Alpha Acid % and the Beta Acid %. To make it clear if you aren’t sure what these are then I have written the definitions as follows:

Alpha Acid % – The percentage of the hop by weight that contains the alpha acid. This is the primary source of the bittering potential of the hops and are used to calculate the final bitterness of the beer according to how long the hops are boiled in the wort for. When the hops are boiled in the wort the acids are isomerized production iso-alpha acids.

Beta Acid % – The percentage of beta acids present in the hop. These beta acids do not readily isomerize but instead effect the bitterness in terms of the aroma produced in the final beer.

White Labs Liquid WLP675 Malolactic Cultures Malolactic Fermentation is the conversion of malic acid to lactic acid by bacteria from the lactic acid bacteria family.  Lactic acid is less acidic than malic acid, which in turn decreases acidity and helps to soften and/or round out some of the flavors in wine. These liquid cultures are available in vials to inoculate 6 gallons or 1 liter sizes to inoculate 60 gallons.Please note: We recommend caution with using WLP675 with wine kits, which contain potassium sorbate and effect the viability of malolactic bacteria. Under FAQ questions below, you will find instructions for using WLP675 with wine kits. General instructions are under FAQs below. N/A N/A N/A N/A

The complex esters and phenolics from the wheat strain are nicely softened and balanced by the neutral ale strain. 73-77% Medium 64-74F,18-23C 10% ABV
Wyeast Liquid 2042 – DanishLager™ This yeast is a good choice for Dortmund-style lagers. It will ferment crisp and dry with a soft, rounded profile that accentuates hop characteristics. 73-77% Low 46-56F,8-13C 9% ABV
Wyeast Liquid 5733 – Pediococcus™ Lactic acid bacteria used in the production of Belgian style beers where additional acidity is desirable. Often found in gueuze and other Belgian style beer. Acid production will increase with storage time. It may also cause “ropiness” and produce low levels of diacetyl with extended storage time. 60-95°F(15-35°C) n
Wyeast Liquid 1098 – BritishAle™ This yeast allows malt and hop character to dominate the profile. It ferments dry and crisp, producing well-balanced beers with a clean and neutral finish. Ferments well down to 64°F (18°C). 73-75% Medium 64-72F,18-22C 10% ABV
Wyeast Liquid 3068 – WeihenstephanWeizen™ The classic and most popular German wheat beer strain used worldwide. This yeast strain produces a beautiful and delicate balance of banana esters and clove phenolics. The balance can be manipulated towards ester production through increasing the fermentation temperature, increasing the wort density, and decreasing the pitch rate. Over pitching can result in a near complete loss of banana character. Decreasing the ester level will allow a higher clove character to be perceived. Sulfur is commonly produced, but will dissipate with conditioning. This strain is very powdery and will remain in suspension for an extended amount of time following attenuation. This is true top cropping yeast and requires fermenter headspace of 33%. 73-77% low 64-75°F(18-24°C) approximately10% ABV
Wyeast Liquid 2000 – BudvarLager™ The Budvar strain has a nice malty nose with subtle fruit tones and a rich malt profile on the palate. It finishes malty but dry, well balanced and crisp. Hop character comes through in the finish. 71-75% Medium-High 48-56F,9-13C 9% ABV
