This strain seems to be the end all, be all for pilsner beer and German style lagers. For those of you that know me, you know that I’m obsessed with the Weihenstephan Lager strain (WLP830, Wyeast 2124, Imperial Global, or Saflager 34/70, respectively).
This is a cleaner, crisper alternative that produces low sulphur but still pushes out that wonderful, high quality malt character that I look for in any kind of lager, be it bock, oktoberfest or helles. Since it only comes around once a year or so, it’s definitely worth trying out with your next lager style!!
