  1. Greetings , Enjoyed your book . I have a question on using CBC -1 use . You mention it’s use in bottle conditioning but no info or chart for amounts to use with added sugar . Please advise . Thanks , Rodrigo


    1. Thank you for reading and the question. Lallemand recommend 0.1grams per liter when using CBC-1 for bottle conditioning (0.37grams per gallon). The amount of sugar you add won’t impact the amount of yeast you need. The yeast will grow and consume the available sugars.

      Hope that helps.
