Description

The famous "Weihenstephan" yeast from Germany. W-34/70 is a widely used yeast strain that gives beer a clean finish and lets the malt really come through. Give this yeast a try and you might just have a new favorite!

This yeast can be pitched directly, but if you prefer to rehydrate, the instructions are below.

Sprinkle the yeast in a minimum of 10 times its weight of sterile water or wort (we suggest 4 oz) at 70°F to 77°F (21 to 25 °C). Do not stir. Leave to rest 15 to 30 minutes. Gently stir for 30 minutes, and pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel.

It's my go-to yeast for lagers. It's pricey, but I chain lager brews to reuse as much as possible.

Good lager character
Keep primary below 59 degrees and there is low ester production.

consistent, quick starting (for a lager), useful for multiple lager styles, clean finish w malty flavor, maybe not quite as much maltiness as some specialist yeast but the difference can be corrected w a small increase in mash temp.

Only yeast I use for lagers
Always a great yeast for any German lager. I use 2 packs for a light Vienna lager or Munich Dunkel and reuse it for do8ble bocks.

My go to lager yeast
This is a good lager yeast. It does not require starter, direct pitch after oxygenating wort. I use two packs for a 10+ gallon batch if cellar is cold or high starting gravity, but one pack works.
