White Labs WLP885 Zurich Lager Yeast Vault Strain

A Swiss-style lager yeast that with proper care can be used to produce lagers over 11% ABV. Sulfur and diacetyl production is minimal.  Consider your favorite Christmas beer, Samichlaus, and you'll know what this strain adds to a high gravity brew.

For those of you (like me) that LOVE high gravity lagers, this strain is IT!  It’s only around once a year or so when White Labs spins it up, but it’s the perfect strain for both light and dark high gravity beers.  Attenuation is up to 80%, which is wonderful for a nice, dry lager, even at 10% or 12% ABV.  I like that even at monster ABV levels, it doesn’t produce heavy sulfur and diacetyl.  This strain paired with our Kaiser’s Reserve recipe is beautiful!
