Full attenuation is possible within 72 hours, at pitching rate of 1 g/L (2 packs for 5 gallons), wort density of 12 Plato (1.048). Fermentation temperature should be kept above 63F – it is unknown at this time what the upper limit for this yeast strain is, but free-rising from pitch temperature is encouraged. The manufacturer recommends rehydrating this yeast – instructions are on the back of the package.
