|Lallemand Brewing officially releases the latest yeast innovation for Low and No Alcohol beer, LalBrew LoNa™.
LalBrew LoNa™ is a hybrid Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast strain that has been selected for the easy and consistent production of low and non-alcoholic beers. Advanced classical and non-GMO breeding methods were used to select a strain that does not consume maltose or maltotriose, resulting in very low attenuation. LalBrew LoNa™ is the first maltose-negative Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain specifically selected for beer fermentations. As a S. cerevisiae strain, LalBrew LoNa™ performs like an ale producing a clean and neutral aroma profile, no phenolic flavours, and significantly reducing aldehydes that cause worthy flavours.
Additionally, the patented technology from the University of California Davis (USA) ensures that the strain will not produce sulfurous off-flavours, allowing the malt and hop flavours to shine through.
LalBrew LoNa™ is available globally in 500g sachets and 10kg bulk packs. Pasteurization is required when brewing with LalBrew LoNa™ to avoid refermentation after packaging and ensure beer stability.
