Brewers choose Windsor to produce beers that range from pale ale to porter with moderate alcohol levels and the flavor & aroma characteristics of the best traditional ales. Depending on the composition of the recipe, Windsor demonstrates moderate attenuation which will leave a relatively high gravity (density). Recommended fermentation temperature range for Windsor is 17 to 21 C (64 to 70 F). Windsor is available in 11 gram nitrogen-purged sachets.

Finished product is released to the market only after passing a rigorous series of tests. Brewing Properties: Quick start to fermentation, which can be completed in 3 days above 17C. Moderate attenuation, which will leave a relatively high gravity. Fermentation rate, fermentation time and degree of attenuation is dependent on inoculation density, yeast handling, fermentation temperature and the nutritional quality of the wort.
