  • Description
  • Q and A

Czech Pils is a strain perfect for use in classic Bohemian and American pilsners, but does well in many dark, malty lager styles as well. This yeast allows malt to dominate in a dry finish that is crisp and satisfying. While the fermentation temperature range for this yeast stretches between 50°F and 58°F, sulfur production can be reduced by fermenting on the warm end, and Wyeast states that sulfur produced during fermentation will dissipate with conditioning. A unique yeast strain that will clear well and produce delicious beers with proper conditioning.

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.
