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.
LalBrew® LoNa™ performs like an ale producing a clean and neutral aroma profile, no phenolic flavors, and significantly reducing aldehydes that cause worty flavors. Additionally, the patented technology from the University of California Davis (USA) ensures that the strain will not produce sulfurous off-flavors, allowing the malt and hop flavors to shine through.
Pasteurization is required when brewing with LalBrew® LoNa™ to avoid refermentation after packaging and ensure beer stability.
