“Crisp, clean, and easy to use”

By: Ben | Date: Jan., 20th 2014 | Beer(s) Brewed: Mexican Lager

Brewed a Mexican Lager a year ago with this yeast, and even though I'm still fairly new to brewing and didn't do everything "by the book", it took off just fine. The result was very clean, fairly crisp but not incredibly so. With a dash of lime it made my Cinco de Mayo party perfect. I've gotten more compliments on that beer than any other, and am now starting another, larger batch with the same strain.

“Super low fuss, hard working yeast.”

This was the yeast I tried for a German pils. It's not as crisp as WLP830, but way way easier to use. Fast to ferment,.fast to flocculate, fast to condition. I got 81% adf with all malt wort mashed at 149F. If you want a clean, low fuss, fast turnaround lager yeast, it be here.

“An excellent yeast ...”
