Temperature Range: 52-58F
Alcohol Tolerance: 8-12%
Characteristics Notes: This strain is ideal for producing malty lagers. Residual sweetness further helps promote malt nuances while contributing to a balanced finish. The first generation of this strain can be slow, so we encourage using a larger initial culture or scheduling longer fermentation and conditioning times. Great for lagers with a wide gravity range including bocks, doppelbocks, märzens, Oktoberfests and American amber lagers.
Styles: Bock, Dopplebock, Marzen, Oktoberfest, Amber, American and Vienna Lagers and Schwarzbier.
