AN ALL-IN-1™ YEAST & ENZYME BLEND FOR LOWER-CARB* DRY LAGER BEERS
SafBrew™ LD-20 is the perfect choice for the production of very dry and neutral lager beers with reduced residual sugars. SafBrew™ LD-20 is made of both active dry yeast and enzymes and allows the production of beers containing the same level of alcohol with a reduction of up to 20% of carbohydrates including dextrins.
Ingredients: Yeast (Saccharomyces pastorianus), Maltodextrin, Glucoamylase from Aspergillus niger (EC 188.8.131.52), Emulsifier E491 (sorbitan monostearate)

SAFBREW™ LD-20 overview
SAFBREW™ LD-20 sensory profile
SafBrew™ LD-20 is an All-In-1™ solution from Fermentis especially for dry lagers with a fairly neutral flavor profile. With the influence of the selected yeast, this solution performs in many different brewing conditions, at low temperature fermentation.
SAFBREW™ LD-20 technical features
160 to 240 g/hl at ideally 12°C – 20°C (53.6°F – 68.0°F).
① Direct pitching:
Direct pitch in the fermentor at fermentation temperature at 12°C – 20 °C (53.6°F – 68.0°F).
② With prior rehydration:
o Rehydrate the yeast in 10 times its volume of water or wort at 20°C – 28 °C (68.0°F – 82.4°F).
o Leave to rest for 15 minutes
o Gently stir
o Pitch in the fermentor

Each Fermentis yeast is developed under a specific production scheme and benefits from the know-how of the Lesaffre group, world leader in yeast manufacturing. This guarantees the highest microbiological purity and maximum fermentation activity.
Fermentis dry brewing yeasts are well known for their ability to produce a large variety of beer styles. In order to compare our strains, we ran fermentation trials in laboratory conditions with a standard wort for all the strains and standard temperature conditions (SafLager: 12°C for 48h then 14°C / SafAle: 20°C). We focused on the following parameters: Alcohol production, residual sugars, flocculation and fermentation kinetic. Given the impact of yeast of the quality of the final beer it is recommended to respect the recommended fermentation instructions. We strongly advise users to make fermentation trials before any commercial usage of our products.
