NECTAR Dry Beer Yeast

NECTAR Dry Beer Yeast

A fun, unique yeast with a UK pedigree that emphasizes fresh malt flavor while producing fruity, citrus and floral flavors. Perfect for Pale Ales and IPA's. Like all CellarScience yeast, NECTAR is eligible for direct pitch straight into your wort. CellarScience provides 12g of yeast per sachet, which is up to 9% more than any other brand of dry yeast. Every batch of yeast is PCR tested to ensure quality. NECTAR has been selling to pro breweries for awhile but was just recently packaged down to sachets for homebrewers.
 
Dosage:
One 12g sachet is enough to treat a 5–6 gallon batch. Or 60-100 grams per barrel, depending on wort temperature and gravity.
 
Direct Pitch or Rehydrate:
NECTAR yeast can be direct pitched with great results by sprinkling it onto the surface of the wort in your fermenter. However, proper hydration helps ensure a healthy fermentation and is especially recommended for beer with a starting gravity above 15°P (1.061 SG). To hydrate yeast, first sanitize the yeast pack and a pair of scissors. Boil tap water to sterilize and then cool to 85-95°F (29-35°C). Use 10 grams (0.35 oz) of water per gram of yeast. Sprinkle the yeast onto the water, allow the slurry to stand undisturbed for 20 minutes, and then swirl. Use small amounts of wort to adjust the temperature of the slurry to within 10°F (6°C) of the wort temp before pitching. Ferment between 63-72°F (18-22°C).
