It may also be used for Common beer production with fermentations at 65-68°F (18-20°C). A thorough diacetyl rest is recommended after fermentation is complete.

This lager yeast will work at 63 degrees. That is the temp of my basement in winter.

First experience
First time with this strain. Starter was a little slow to take off and once pitched it was a little slow getting started in the fermenter. Once it got started, it moved right along, going from 1.072 all the way down to 1.010 in 5 days. It definitely lets the malt come through.

Almost 2 months from production?!
Bought this on 8/21. Arrived 8/23. Turns out this yeast was produced on 7/5, therefore the viability is 64%. In other words, the 3 packs I paid for have the equivalent of 2 packs of yeast. Now I'll have to do a 2 step starter. Would not buy yeast from MoreBeer again.

Great Yeast
I don't always brew lagers but when I do, I use Wyeast Bohemian 2124 yeast. I've made a great Oktoberfest and Bohemian Pilsner with this yeast.
