- 70% – 72% (8.8% – 9.3% ABV)
- 18˚C – 23˚C (64˚F – 75˚F)

Medium Gravity is 14˚ – 16˚Plato. High Gravity is 23˚- 25˚Plato. †
The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style.
As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68˚ – 72˚F and then lower or raise temperature as desired. GigaYeast laboratory is still gathering data on many of our strains. Information provided here may change some in the future.
