Saflager W-34/70 originates from the Weihenstephan Institute and is the dry version of the most popular lager strain on the planet. It produces a very clean palate that makes for easy-drinking beers. Both floral and fruit notes are subdued and mild in tandem with one another. This strain produced slight esters. It can be used in a wide range of lagers, from the light, zesty Pilsen beers that have a pronounced, clean hop bitterness to more rich, malty lager styles. It can also be fermented slightly warm to produce California Common beers. A diacetyl rest is recommended when using this strain. When used, this yeast can be used in the creation of some of the highest quality lagers on earth.
