For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast.

Please Note: When choosing an ice pack option beware that the liquid yeast will not arrive cold even when shipped together. Ice packs and insulated mailing options are designed to keep the yeast colder for longer during shipment, but they will not ensure that your yeast arrives cold. We will not replace liquid yeast that arrives warm. During warmer months we strongly recommend you choose dry yeast.

I ferment in a basement where temps change through each season. I've brewed with this strain many times because it produces a clean lager profile no matter my what basement's temps are.

My favorite lager yeast!
Great option for a lager yeast, always finishes clean and works over a wide range of temperatures. Used this to make cali commons, IPL, and hoppy lagers. Maybe I'll try something more traditional in the future.

Clean fermentation/dependable attenuation
Took a 1.072 Maibock down to 1.016 in 14 days. The result is already pretty clear. Looking forward to drinking it in another month.

my house lager yeast
i use this in my hand crafted house lager and always get great results. it is great to use in other lager recipes as well. I use it primarily at lagering temps (50) and it never lets me down.

Let It Lager
I used this yeast for a fresh hopped California common lager. After naturally carbonating half in bottles and half in a keg, I was incredibly disappointed with the flavor and aroma of the beer. I decided instead of throwing out the whole batch I would lager it at 40 degrees F for a month. The flavor and aroma change over one month was incredibly. This is one of the best batches I have brewed and the fresh hops really stand out against the clean lager-like finish. I highly recommend a lagering period with this yeast, even though it isn't a traditional lager yeast. Fermented at 58 degrees for 2 weeks.

Can't go wrong with White Labs and San Francisco Lager is a must for steam style beer
I prefer White labs over other brands of yeast. San Francisco Lager allows a new brewer some flexibility in fermentation temperature. For more experienced brewers White Labs - San Francisco Lager will get you that unique and wonderful Steam beer.

Go to yeast for lager-like beers
I have used this yeast because I have wanted to make lager type beer but cant get it down to the 50s. Ferments in the 60s and much faster.

Perfect Steam Beer
This is the yeast you want for perfect Anchor Steam clones. Hit a fermentation temp between 65-69 and will still get that clean lager "steam" character.

The ONLY yeast to do a California Common
Ferment around 62-64F and you should get the classic flavor desired.

Perfect first time lager
I mistreated this yeast with high temps and low temps. Still did a nice job of creating lager flavor.
