Wyeast's Pilsen Lager yeast is rumored to be a strain originating from the Budweiser brewery. It is often the first (and some might argue, best) choice for doing American lagers, whether classic or contemporary. This strain is described as neutral, producing crisp beers with a pronounced maltiness and a mellow, rounded flavor that is dry in the finish. Producing little sulfer or diacetyl, it can be used to produce more than just light American style lagers. Let your imagination run wild with this classic American yeast!
