LalBrew® LoNa™ is a maltose-negative hybrid strain that has been selected to have ideal characteristics for the production of low and non-alcoholic beers. Advanced classical and non-GMO breeding methods were used to select a strain that does not consume maltose or maltotriose, resulting in very low attenuation. LalBrew® LoNa™ is the first maltose-negative Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain specifically selected for beer fermentations. As a S. cerevisiae strain, LalBrew® LoNa™ performs like an ale producing a clean and neutral aroma profile, no phenolic flavours, and significantly reducing aldehydes that cause worty flavours. Additionally, the patented technology from the University of California Davis (USA) ensures that the strain will not produce sulphurous off-flavours, allowing the malt and hop flavours to shine through.
Pasteurisation is required when brewing with LalBrew® LoNa™ to avoid fermentation after packaging and to ensure beer stability.
- Lalbrew LoNa is suitable for any low or non-alcohol ale styles.
- Aroma and flavour is clean and neutral with no POF or sulphur.
- Wort flavours absent or minimal.
