  • Description
  • Q and A

Pilsner-Urquell is known as the original light golden-colored Pilsner beer. This yeast comes from the source, via Wyeast, to you! Light fruit and flower notes come through in the nose, giving way to a crisp, clean and very dry flavor profile on the palate. Light malt with a nice, full mouthfeel, it is a very neutral yeast that makes very pleasing beers. While Bohemian Lager is the standard beer often produced with this yeast, its characteristics make it a fairly safe choice for many types of light lagers.

Slow to start, slow to finish
Owner Response:Thanks for the review! While the 2001 strain can be a bit slow, it also helps to make sure you pitch enough when lagering! For a five gallon batch, we'd recommend 3-4 packs (4 to be safe) if not doing a starter. With a starter, you'd want a 2L starter to get enough yeast. Best of luck in the future. Cheers! Bryan
