Silly question - as I've not heard of this one before, what would you apply it to?

A good step up from the lowans I’ve been using is what I know.

From my understating :
Use 20% less
High sugar tolerant
High heat tolerant
So this would be ideal in our upcoming summer months and great for our sugar head style ferments.
.
I/we have enlisted 3 local members to trial this yeast:
1 member is promising to dig up some much needed info
2nd member promises to teach us a few lessons on the use
And 3rdly our next member promised to be regimented in his military like findings.
.
I have no doubt this yeast will be superior in every way compared to the likes of Lowans, saving you time and money.
I have such high hopes for this yeast that I will put up 3 x 500g packs as competition prizes to be dished out by Doubleuj and the rest of the admin crew as they see fit

Hi All,

I was lucky enough to receive a sample of the Saf-Instant yeast for trial.

I used the yeast on a variant of the Cornflakes Wash (CFW). This will be multi generational so the below details are for gen 1.

Starting gravity was 1.116 (Relatively high SG, for the purpose of the trial).

Pitched yeast dry into wash at 32 degrees C, I used 50 grams for a 27L wash. Just a general note; the yeast smelt rich (more yeasty than Lowans).

Activity in airlock started within a couple hours. Not the most vigorous ferment but definitely steady.

Ferment temp was maintained with a blanket in my garage. At day 8 gravity was down to 1.020. Ferment had slowed and temp was down to 22 degrees (due to recent cold snap in the south east QLD).

I left the ferment for an additional 6 days. Ambient temp increased to 26 degrees in my garage and ferment continued along slowly. At the end of day 14 I checked the gravity and it was at 1.000.

I have removed insulation and am allowing the yeast to settle out. Will update once distilled and gen 2 is on.

There is definitely a rich smell coming from the wash, more than I would expect from a sugar wash and maybe in part due to the yeast. This is something that I know I will enjoy.

Final ABV of around 15% (I normally do all grain so much higher than my usual 8%). :obscene-drinkingdrunk:

Cheers.
Georgio

SAF Gold is osmotolerant type of yeast. It is very tolerant to sugar and performs well in doughs with very low amounts of water (i.e. doughs made with milk and eggs) and high sugar content.
Normally, when working with very sweet yeasted doughs, one would have to increase yeast to extraordinary amounts, way above 2 baker's percent, to maintain normal fermentation rate. SAF Gold yeast will ferment happily in very sweet doughs and small amounts of SAF Gold lift them in a normal amount of time, i.e. sweet dough doubling in volume in one hour at room temperature.

The stig. Can you add the fact that you are Andrew and own 5 star to your signature. Having two accounts to talk up every product is dodgy at best and dishonest at worst. Or just get rid of the stig and only talk as Andrew now that you have a financial interest in the forums and 5 star.

I dont do that, your reading too much into a simple copy and paste answer to a question.
But if youve got a bone to pick feel free to pm, email or even phone me.

That cant happen due to the forum needing a Tech contact and, well, Stig has been here since the beginning.

And the coming out thread wasnt enough for you?

Orcy, the Stig does more behind the scenes here to keep this place running than no body knows.

There needs to be a direct contact for 5 Star that newbies can associate with. Stig has added to his signature as requested, hopefully this matter is resolved for you.

Do to an unforeseen effort on behalf of better-half, I have a surplus of bakers yeast... but I am keen to have a crack at this yeast! I’m hoping it doesn’t produce the same after taste as bakers yeast!!!

Is there any way of getting this yeast in WA ?

Postage would probably make it not viable ?

Update 2.0

Hi all,

In following on from my first gen CFW using the SAf Gold Yeast, I have stripped and put gen 2 on. I ran the wash through the pot still nice and quick and am happy with what I could smell and taste.

For gen 2 I replaced some corn flakes and returned 4.5L of cooled dunder back in to the 25L ferment. I upped the sugar for gen 2 (8kg) to see how far I could push the yeast and finally added some DAP yeast nutrient.

After 24hrs I had no action at all. Temp was at 25c. So I put the heat belt on and after 12hrs the temp was at 32c but still no action. I suspect the pH was too low (but had run out of pH strips :angry-banghead: ) so I added 3 tablespoons of food grade Calcuim Carbonate for good measure. 24hrs later action had commenced and ferment is quite vigorous.

So in summary my experience with this yeast has been good and have had no dramas using the yeast for generational recipes whilst aiming for a higher ABV%

Happy Stillin!
G.
