Description

This is my personal favorite when it comes to German lager strains. It could be my family association with Bamburg and the excellent rauchbier that this creates, or it could be the rich malt complexity that this strain delivers. Excellent for both helles lagers and more rich and malty lagers, such as maibocks, marzens, vienna lagers and doppelbocks. As a beer geek, I swear that you will love this strain if you enjoy a good German lager!

This is a unique strain, capable of producing fine lagers. It is very smooth, well-rounded and full-bodied. A thorough diacetyl rest is recommended after fermentation is complete.

It has been a great performer in the past and I can count on your yeast being pretty fresh

Not bad
Yeast was four months old. Fresher would have been better.

Works Great!
I let the bag warm to room temperature, popped the inner bag and let it sit for about 3 hours prior to adding to my Munich helles. Worked like a charm. West takes a lot of the guesswork out of the yeast portion of the brew.

Good Lager Workhorse
I have been using Wyeast Munich 2308 for many years now from lighter helles lagers to heavier bock beers. The malty profile left by the yeast, when used at the right fermentation temperatures and sufficient lagering, makes a clean tasting lager. For me, making lagers has been more difficult than ales, but this yeast worked well were others have failed.
