  • Description
  • Q and A

Danish Lager yeast is a good choice to use on Dortmund Export lagers and Munich Helles, as well as a number of American style lagers. It can ferment slightly cooler than some lager strains, and lower attenuation means a longer conditioning phase can be utilized to further clear beer. However, it is known to create excellent beers that are crisp and dry on the tongue, rounded and smooth in the mouth, with a relative hop-forwardness. A good yeast that is often underutilized by brewers...give it a try!

Warm Weather Shipping Notice

During the hot summer months we include complimentary ice packs with ALL liquid yeast orders, but cannot guarantee that the ice packs will stay cold during transit, and thus the yeast can potentially be exposed to hot temperatures. We highly recommend ordering dry yeast during the summer months or if you are ordering from a warmer climate.
