Lag time

From HomeBrewTalk Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Lag time is the time between the pitching of the yeast and when alcohol production begins. Before the yeast can begin producing alcohol, it goes through a process where it processes all the oxygen in the wort. During this process, the yeast multiplies and gains energy which is used during the alcohol production stage. It is during the period that the chances of infection are greatest.
