Well-balanced lagers are what you get when you use German Bock Lager from White Labs! Of course, it is a great yeast for Bocks and Doppelbocks, but is also great for Marzen, Oktoberfest, and suprisingly, Classic American Pilsner beers. Purportedly a strain from the Ayinger Brewery in Germany, it is known to ferment very clean, producing little sulfur during fermentation and very little diacetyl under normal lager fermentation conditions. It is more attenuative than White Labs' Oktoberfest/Marzen yeast, and has a medium-high rate of flocculation. This yeast is well-balanced between a sweet, malty flavor and aroma and a pleasant hop character. It is a favorite yeast strain of many lager brewers, who sometimes use this as a house lager 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!
