A yeast strain hailing from the land of the famed German Oktoberfest, Munich Lager yeast is often used in the production of the famed festival beers, as well as rich bock beers. Beers made with this strain tend to be rich and full-bodied, balanced on the palate while being smooth and delicious. As with many lager strains, a post-fermentation diacetyl rest is recommended. This yeast is unique and capable of making extremely high-quality, malty lagers.
