Southern German Lager yeast from White Labs is a strong-fermenting lager yeast that produces a clean malt character in lagers that turns out beautiful and delicous! This strain can accentuate malt complexity in your grain bills, bringing out the wonderful grain flavors of your lager beers. Hop character comes through in the background with this strain, whereas maltiness is the main star of the show! It tends to clear very well, leaving a very clean and clear beer after fermentation. As with many lager strains, a diacetyl rest is recommended near the end of fermentation to help reduce diacetyl in the final product. Many people report tremendous results with this yeast, making many lagers, from light German pilsners and Munich Helles, all the way through to Vienna Lagers, Oktoberfest/Marzens, Doppelbocks, Eurpoean-style dark lagers and schwarzbier. A great 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!
