This product is the result of the research and development work of Renaissance Bioscience Corp. (Vancouver BC, Canada) in partnership with Lallemand Brewing. LalBrew NovaLager was selected using classical and non-GMO breeding methods to obtain a novel Saccharomyces cerevisiae x Saccharomyces eubayanus hybrid strain that defines a novel Group III (Renaissance) lager lineage that is distinct from any other traditional Saccharomyces pastorianus strains. This strain is a low VDK/diacetyl producer and utilizes patented technology from the University of California Davis (USA) that inhibits the production of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) off-flavors, therefore reducing the maturation time associated with lager beer production

In line with Lallemand’s strict quality control and assurance procedures, every single batch of Lallemand yeast is released to the market only after passing a rigorous series of tests, guaranteeing the highest standards of purity, quality and performance.
Understanding the needs of today’s brewers has led us to develop new premium strains of brewing yeast and bacteria product lines. Delivering excellence in consistency, reliability and purity, these yeast and bacteria products empower brewers to exercise greater control over the fermentation process, expressing their creativity to brew beers with the desired aromatic and flavor qualities.
Lallemand Inc. Is a privately-owned Canadian corporation that researches, develops, produces and markets yeasts, bacteria and related products with the aim of reproducing, managing and optimizing natural fermentation processes in the agri-food industries.
