ATF Kapiti Helles - Grainfather

$34.90 NZD



The ATF Kapiti Helles is a clean easy drinking lager; smooth and malty sweet with a soft bitterness, mild spicy and floral hop character, and a dry finish.

Yeast is not included in the kit. If fermenting cold we recommend using Mangrove Jack's Bavarian Lager yeast or

  • Fermentis SafLager W-34/70 or
  • Lallemand Diamond Lager Yeast

If fermenting warm we recommend using Fermentis SafLager W-34/70.

Selecting the yeast from the dropdown box above will add one packet to your cart. Please click the + symbol beside the amount to increase this to the recommended quantity for the batch size.

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.
