The directions say 100-200 grams of dry yeast / 26.42 Gallons wort. So you need 38-76 Grams/10 gallons. So this is 3.5 to 7 packs / 10 gallons ! Whats Up?
Edward Bloom on May 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It depends on your OG. If you are 1.05 then 2 packs per 5 gallons is plenty. So 4 packs for 10 gallons for a 1.05 wort. Lager yeast generally should be pitched at double the rate of Ale yeast if you are fermenting in the low 50s.

If you are doing more like a California common at warm temps or just doing a lager at warm temps (by warm In this since I mean 58-62 or so) then you can pitch less yeast. This yeast makes good beer at those temps btw, as long as you cold lager it post primary fermentation I doubt you could tell the difference if a warm vs. cold fermented beverage.

LalBrew Diamond Lager Yeast
Due to my regular lager yeast being out of stock, I decided to try the LalBrew Diamond Yeast in brewing our Dortmunder style lager. Have had problems in the past with primary fermentation ending hanging up after a couple of days. Not with this yeast, it is still going strong after more than a week. Will continue using this going forward with all our Czech/German lagers.

Good Reaction from Yeast
Pitched the yeast on Sunday, got strong bubbling action within 12 hours. Very strong for 72 hours so far. Seems to be doing very well. Can't wait to taste the beer!

Clean, efficient fermentation
Used one packet in a starter to ferment a 1.050 pale lager. Started quickly and fermented to the predicted terminal gravity in about 12 days. Beer is now clearing in cold storage. Taste test from gravity sample seems pretty promising.

Amazing for Oktoberfest.
Had 2.5 months until our home brew fest. Used this yeast on an Oktoberfest. WOW!! Best I have ever made. I have used liquids past 2 years. From now on, I’m using this yeast. Tons of compliments. “Best Oktoberfest here”.
