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

We Recommend you make a yeast starter for all lagers. Because of the cold environment you will need about 4 times as much yeast to successfully ferment a lager. If you don't have a yeast starter pitch 2-4 vials at 60-70F and cool to 48-52F within 12-18 hours. To ferment lagers like the German's and Czech's make an active starter of 2000ml per 5 gallons. Pitch at 45-48F and let it naturally rise to 48-52F. Hold your fermentation at 48-52F for 4-6 weeks in the primary. A diacetyl rest is recommended after the last week of fermentation. Raise to 55-58F for 3-5days and crash to 40F. It is normal if lager fermentation takes 3-4 days to show any sign of krausen after pitching yeast.

Attenuation: 70-76%
Flocculation: Medium
Fermentaion temperature: 48-55F
Wyeast Equivalent: None

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

Great Yeast No Sulfur!
This is a great yeast to use! I use it in my Munich Dunkel and it leaves it very malty with no sulfur like some other strains. Reportedly this strain is from Ayinger Brewery in Bavaria Germany.

Great Bock!
This yeast made a wonderful bock (actually between a bock and a doppelbock). Malty and finished slightly dry without too much sweetness that can come from a higher grain bill. Clear and crisp lager.

Loving 833
This is my go-to lager yeast. Have used for bocks, Vienna lagers and award-winning Octoberfests. Provides a great malty profile with a slight dryness at the end. Have repitched repeatedly and 833 seems to maintain its integrity. FANTASTIC lager yeast!
