WISCONSIN STRAINS OF SACCHAROMYCES EUBAYANUS WITH IMPROVED SUGAR CONSUMPTION AND DECREASED PHENOLIC OFF-FLAVOR PRODUCTION
Inventors: Christopher Hittinger, Johnathan Crandall, Andrew Sommer, Hayley Stoneman
UW-Madison researchers have developed two related strains of S. eubayanus (yHJC187 and yHJC188) that possess the key desirable traits for lager beer fermentation: natural cold tolerance, an ability to consume the sugars present in brewer's wort, and reduced production of phenolic off-flavors.
