Suggested Fermentis Dry Yeast by Beer Style

By GFHB  -  November 11th, 2018

Yeast attributes a lot to the finished beer. Do you want a dry or full bodied beer? Are you making an Ale or a Lager? According to Fermentis, beer yeast is able to produce or contribute to body, mouth feel, flavor and many aromas which could typically be grouped into four categories: neutral, fruity, floral and spicy. But the expression of the yeast onto the final beer depends on factors including pitching rate and fermentation temperature, as well as the effect of oxygen.
