A cold fermenting Mexican yeast that produces clean, crisp lagers. This versatile strain has a neutral character and finishes dry. Perfect for Mexican-style light lagers, dark lagers, and cold IPAs.
Every batch is PCR tested to ensure contamination free yeast.
Use at a rate of 12 grams per 5-6 gallons of wort. Or 60-100 grams per barrel, depending on wort temperature and gravity.
Direct Pitch or Rehydrate:
BAJA 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 64-72°F (18-22°C).
Optimum Fermentation Temp: 48-50°F
Cell Count: 10 billion cells per gram
