Dark without being roasty or bitter, full-bodied and malty without being syrupy ... Dunkel is another signature lager from Bavaria. The copper color and profound complexity comes from high-kilned Munich malt, with its toasty, bready aroma and full flavor. Our kit is rounded out with German hops and an authentic yeast strain to yield a smooth and satisfying dark lager. Serve alongside rye bread, cheese and mustard. Recommended: 2-stage cold fermentation and yeast starter.

Browse 1 question and 9 answersShow all answers | Sort byI just purchased this kit, I ordered with the wyeast 2206 Bavarian as it sound to me it would be more original for a German beer recipe, but now I am not sure if it will be the right choice as NB indicates is a liquid yeast and tempature may kill it during the shipping? I live in Florida and is pretty hot and humid now.Best Answer: We can only speak in likelihood, not certainty, but... I think it likely the yeast 2206 will be OK after shipping, so I would probably just go for it. In the future during the summer months I would go with a dry yeast such as saflager s-23 if you are worried about the heat. If you get a yeast starter kit a dry yeast will work great.
Another issue is your fermentation temperature: the 2206 optimal temperature is around 50 degrees (listed in the detail of the yeast), so if you can control that, a lager yeast is great. However, if you have it sitting in a closet or the basement like most people, your fermentation temperature will be more like 65 or 70, and a lager yeast may not be a great choice. My suggestion to solve that problem is use the kit with an ale yeast such as yeast 1056 (liquid) or safale us 05 (dry). Not exactly traditional/authentic, but it will taste fine.
