School me up on K-97. Homebrew store gave me two packs.
« on: November 04, 2010, 09:02:21 AM »
I've read it is an ale yeast of European origin and that it is slow in the first generation.  What temp range and attenuation should I expect?  I'm thinking of making an alt or a mock-dunkel with it.  Any experts out there with some ideas?

I've used it a couple times for alt.  Pretty good, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get it.

I've used it in Alts, American pales and American Ambers. Fermented cold--high fifties low sixties, very clean and crisp. More so than US-05. It is slower and does not clear. You have to cold condition it out. It's a good yeast for an American wheat that you want to serve cloudy.
