Originating from the August Schell brewery in Minnesota, Wyeast's American Lager strain has more complexity than the Pilsen Lager strain. The August Schell brewery is one of the oldest family-owned breweries in the United States, and as such, have developed unique house strains of yeast that produce beers with significant character. This strain is known to be more bold and robust than other strains used in the production of classic American Pilsners, but comes highly recommended by a number of brewers who have used it to great success.
