From the Alps of southern Bavaria, this yeast produces a beer that is well balanced between malt and hop character. The excellent malt profile makes it well suited for Bocks, Doppelbocks, and Oktoberfest style beers. Very versatile lager yeast, it is so well balanced that it has gained tremendous popularity for use in Classic American style Pilsners. Also good for Helles style lager beer.

More then 10 X 5 gallon batches brewed with the same culture, re-pitching new wort on the old yeast cake, over more than a year. Extremely robust, clean yeast that attenuates well yet brings the malt forward. By all means, my favourite strain.
