SKU# YP820

Flat Rate Shipping only $7.99 only from Northern Brewer

This yeast produces a very malty, bock like style. It does not finish as dry as WLP830. This yeast is much slower in the first generation than WLP830, so we encourage a larger starter to be used the first generation or schedule a longer lagering time.

Excellent choice for the style
This yeast is not problematic. It simply requires some TLC. The first generation is a bit slow to get going but a double or "built up" starter will provide plenty of yeast and a great fermentation will be proceeding within 24 hours. I start with a 3L starter and pitch to 4L. Decant and pitch about 1L of slurry. Equalize the temperatures of the starter and the wort before pitching. My Oktoberfest, (Northern Brewer all grain, single infusion or triple decoction), finishes very malty and not too sweet as the style suggests. Even though the flocculation is rated at medium, in my experience the beer clears up very nicely within 3 weeks of lagering. Highly recommend for the style.

Good Oktoberfest Yeast
Used this in the Oktoberfest extract kit from NB. Beer was good, although a little too sweet. Attenuation came in a little low - about 60%. This was my first attempt at a lager and my starter was too small (2L). Probably the cause for sweetness and low attenuation. Will definitely try this yeast again.
