How to Choose the Right Yeast Strain for Beer Brewing?

Mar. 25, 2020

As an Industry Brewery Project Supplier, share with you.

Choosing the ideal yeast for the job is easy, right? Just choose one with a name that mirrors what you're brewing:

American ale for pale ale, Scottish ale for wee heavy, Czech beer for Pilsner, and more. Nothing to it!

Well, yes as well as no. Choosing stress by name alone isn't a bad way to begin. After all, there's a reason for the names, and also selecting a yeast according to its name is not likely to steer you also far from where you 'd like to be. But it's additionally crucial to consider specific efficiency signs to ensure your picked stress is up to the task.

Below's what to seek when deciding on a yeast.


Depletion describes the percent of available wort sugars that a yeast pressure in fact ferments. A lot more generally, brewers chat in terms of apparent attenuation, which is the attenuation determined simply from hydrometer analyses. 

Typical values are:

Low: 72 percent and lower

Medium: 73 to 77 percent

High: 78 percent and up

The desired level of attenuation is partly an issue of style and also partly among individual preference. Utilizing a low-attenuation yeast for a saison or a high-attenuation yeast for a light ale is most likely to disappoint. Yet I have actually discovered that I often tend to prefer a drier coating in the majority of my beer, so I have a tendency to err on the side of more attenuation than less.

TAKE-AWAY: Select a yeast pressure that displays the right degree of attenuation for the beer style and for your taste.


Flocculation is the readiness with which yeast cells glob together and, having actually reached an emergency, decline to the bottom of the fermentor.

British stress is famously flocculent: After fermentation is total (and also occasionally before!), yeast cells form a portable cake on the floor of the fermentor that comes off in pieces. Stress that show reduced flocculation, such as Weizen yeasts, have a tendency to relax around as well as remain in suspension well past completion of the party. In extreme cases, the beer needs to be refrigerated (or, in a commercial setting, centrifuged) to separate the yeast.
