LalBrew NovaLager is a true bottom-fermenting Saccharomyces pastorianus hybrid from the novel Group III lineage that has been selected to produce clean lager beers with distinct flavor characteristics and superior fermentation performance. LalBrew NovaLager is a robust lager strain with ideal characteristics for lager beer production including fast fermentations and high attenuation. The distinct flavor profile is very clean, with slight esters over a wide temperature range. LalBrew NovaLager was selected using classical and non-GMO breeding methods to obtain a novel Saccharomyces cerevisiae x Saccharomyces eubayanus hybrid strain that defines a novel Group III lager lineage that is distinct from any other traditional Saccharomyces pastorianus strains. This strain is a low VDK/diacetyl producer and utilizes patented technology from the University of California Davis (USA) that inhibits the production of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) off-flavors, therefore reducing the maturation time associated with lager beer production.
NovaLager Yeast Features:
- Beer Styles: Lagers
- Aroma: Clean, low to medium ester, no sulfur
- Ideal Fermentation Temperature: 50–68°F
- Flocculation: Medium
- Attenuation: 78-84%
- Alcohol Tolerance: 13%
NovaLager is not a genetically modified yeast. Classical breeding technologies were used to select this strain, similar to breeding traditional agricultural crop plants.

I've used NovaLager several times and always had outstanding results. It is non-diastatic eliminating the need for a diacetyl rest. Fermentation has always completed within 6 to 7 days. A wide temperature range (50-68 F/10-20 C) allows fermentation without the need for a special refrigerated environment. Since it's a dry yeast, you can have it shipped to you in warm weather without fear of heat ruining it.
