California Common lovers rejoice! San Francisco Lager Yeast from White Labs is the classic strain used for producing California Common style beers. This clean-fermenting strain retains lager characteristics even at warmer fermentation temperatures of up to 65F, and can ferment successfully as cool as 50F. It can be used to create an incredible California Common ale, as well as American style lagers of all kinds, from paler classic American lagers to darker amber beers. It can also be used for darker European beers such as schwarzbiers and Doppelbocks. San Francisco Lager yeast is great for brewers who want to make lagers but do not have access to the precise temperature control that normal lagers strains often require. An excellent all-around strain!

ICE PACK INCLUDED
We include complimentary ice packs with ALL liquid yeast orders (if required), 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 hot summer months or if you are ordering from a warmer climate. Many times during the winter an ice pack is not needed so we make the determination based on current temperatures and the destination!
