ATF Classic NZ Lager

No reviews

The ATF Classic NZ Lager is a clean and crisp light bodied beer infused with the  flavour of the unique Green Bullet Hops, the workhorse of traditional New Zealand breweries. 

With a spicy fresh green grass aroma and clean crisp mouthfeel with a firm bitterness and dry finish, the ATF Classic NZ Lager is the Kiwi summer beer of yesteryear. 

Yeast is not included in the kit. We recommend using  Fermentis Saflager S-189 if fermenting cold.

If you are unable to perform a cold fermentation you can ferment warm (20℃) using Mangrove Jack's Californian Lager yeast, Fermentis SafLager W-34/70, or Lallemand NovaLager yeast.

Note on Fermentation Temperature

Mangrove Jack's Californian Lager Yeast

Mangrove Jack's Californian Lager yeast is a unique lager strain that has the ability to ferment at ale temperatures and still provide a typical lager flavour profile. 

Fermentis SafLager W-34/70

Sensory testing performed by Fermentis on W-34/70 shows that it is a very robust yeast capable of providing a clean neutral flavour profile across a wide range of fermentation temperatures (12 - 20).  Click here to download the Fermentis iPhone app for more information.

Lallemand NovaLager

LalBrew NovaLager™ is a robust lager strain with ideal characteristics for lager beer production including fast fermentations and high attenuation. The distinct flavour profile is very clean with slight esters over a wide temperature range.

The optimal temperature range for LalBrew NovaLager™ yeast when producing traditional styles is 10 – 20°C.
