SafBrew DA‑16 Yeast


Looking for yeast to ferment a dry, flavorful beer? Try SafBrew DA‑16 Yeast, a powerful yeast + enzyme combination that’s great for producing beers up to 16% ABV! This is a 25g packet intended for use in a 5 gallon batch of beer.

SafBrew DA 16 Yeast is an all in one solution ideal for crafting strong, dry, aromatic & crisp beers without off-flavors. It consists of yeast and enzymes. Together, this solution enhances the distinct hop characters and fruity esters in hop forward, dry beers such as Brut IPA. By using a Saccharomyces yeast that is POF- (Phenolic Off Flavor Negative), this solution doesn’t create phenols (clove or spicy flavor).

SafBrew DA‑16 Yeast exhibits high attenuation (98-102%), meaning the yeast and enzymes consume 98-102% of the sugars in the wort to produce a drier finish. The enzymes in DA 16 Yeast convert non-fermentable, more complex sugars into fermentable sugars. Those fermentable sugars are consumed by the yeast to create CO2, alcohol, and aromatic compounds. 

This solution thrives in a fermentation temperature range between 68 - 89.6ºF.
