DetailsCBC-1 has been selected for it's refermentation properties, and it's recommended for Cask and Bottle Conditioning. CBC-1 referments beers up to 12-14% ABV. Due to its high resistance to alcohol and pressure; it does not produce flavors therefor it conserves the original character of the beer. The yeast will settle and form a tight mat at the end of refermentation.
CBC-1 can also be used for primary fermentation and is especially suitable for Champagne-like beers and fruit beers.
CBC-1 will ferment and referment within a range of temperature of (59° to 77°F).

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 10 answersShould I pitch this yeast into secondary when bottle conditioning and how long should I wait before bottling?BEST ANSWER: I have used the CBC-1 yeast many times and it has always worked for me. Rather than pitching the yeast into secondary, I add it at bottling time. I take a cup of water and 3.5 to 5.0 oz of dextrose, boil it, and then let it cool to about 80° F. Then I let the yeast dissolve into the water for about 15 minutes and dump the whole thing into my bottling bucket. Stir the bucket gently with a sanitized spoon for a few minutes so that the yeast is evenly dispersed and then bottle.
There may well be other ways to use the yeast, but this has always been effective for me with my high-gravity recipes.When should I pitch this yeast when bottle conditioning?

I purchased and brewed a 5 gallon kit of Ferrocious. I did this last October and totally forgot about it. I just dry-hopped today (5 months later). Should I use the CBC-1 conditioning yeast to hedge my bets a little when bottling? Should I even bother bottling?BEST ANSWER: After that length of time, I would recommend using some sort of yeast for bottling, whether it is CBC or S-04.
