Classic lager yeast Review by RLS
Rating
I used this in a doppelbock.
Began with a 1l starter at around 50F, which had started visible fermentation by the time I returned home from work about ten hours later.
After pitching this into the main wort and reducing temperature, fermentation was also obvious in under one day. It's advised to perform a two-day diacetyl rest after about 10 days to two weeks, then moving on to a month or more of cold lagering. Additionally, any sulfur produced during fermentation should eventually be broken down. (Posted on 1/13/14)
Great for a Marzen Review by Trimack

This is one of my favorite yeasts for a Marzen style beer. I've currently got it working on a Vienna and and going to toss another beer on it after I rinsed it out for a Munich as well. Great yeast! (Posted on 12/10/13)

This is great yeast. I used 2 packs in my latest dopplebock with a big starter. I use this in many of my lagers. (Posted on 10/28/13)
Doppelbock! Review by Nick
Rating
Makes a mighty fine Doppelbock! Don't mind the "slow starter" comments, it does what a lager yeast is supposed to do, just make sure you do a starter and regulate your temps appropriately.

Did a 1.5L starter I left it out at an ambient temperature of ~67F, after pitching I let it sit overnight at ~60F for 12 hours. The fermentation was apparent at that point, then 56F for a month, did a diacetyl rest for a day or 2, then cranked the temps down for finishing, ~48F. (Posted on 10/25/13)
Great fermentation Review by Steve
Rating
I used this yeast for my annual Oktoberfest beer. I made a 2 liter starter and also pitched in another tube with oxygen. Fermentation started the same day and it ended with about 75% attenuation within 2 weeks but most of the fermentation was done within a week. The beer tastes great and is now lagering for about a month. Will carbonate in the keg and serve at our Oktoberfest party. (Posted on 9/14/13)
great yeast Review by Roberto

I have won multiple awards using this yeast. Its a lager yeast so make a big yeast starter with it. If you expect full fermentation overnight without a starter then make ales. (Posted on 9/30/12)
nice and malty Review by Nate
Rating
I have used this yeast several times for german lagers and love it. It makes a malty beer that works well with darker beers with lots of munich malt. It can produce significant sulfur during fermentation but it goes away. (Posted on 9/30/12)
Slow Joe Review by Bob
Rating
This yeast will freak a lot of people out as it starts very slow and will make you wonder. Took a week for the pack to swell and 3 days to show signs of life in the wort. I guess it has a reputation as a slow starter, I would definitely recommend a starter on even low gravity beers. (Posted on 9/28/12)
