Wyeast's Pilsen Lager yeast is rumored to be a strain originating from the Budweiser brewery. It is often the first (and some might argue, best) choice for doing American lagers, whether classic or contemporary. This strain is described as neutral, producing crisp beers with a pronounced maltiness and a mellow, rounded flavor that is dry in the finish. Producing little sulfer or diacetyl, it can be used to produce more than just light American style lagers. Let your imagination run wild with this classic American yeast!


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!
