Great German beer yeast
I used this yeast on two beers - NB's Oktoberfest and on their 20-Minute Kolsch kit. I made a healthy starter for the Oktoberfest, let it sit in primary for 3 weeks and a month in secondary at around 60 degrees. After three weeks in the bottle at room temp, this created probably my favorite batch out of 30+ extract kits. I then harvested and washed this yeast and used in the Kolsch with a starter. Again - healthy fermentation and a solid beer.

Healthy yeast that may need extra activation time
I bought this as part of the Altbier brewing kit. It arrived well packaged. After activating it needed about 4 days to inflate fully (the package says about 3). My recommendation is to activate on Tuesday evening if you're brewing on a Saturday. The beer isn't done yet, so I can't comment on taste, but it ferments strongly and created thick krausen a few days into primary fermentation.

favorite yeast
I have been brewing beer for years. I love to try new ideas and recipes. If something does not go quite how I expect, I try this yeast before I dismiss an attempt at something new. Wyeast 1007 German Ale just works!

Persistent + "green apples" sometimes
I have used this yeast a few times, including my first homebrew, a Kolsch. It's persistent and produced a dry beer even when underpitched. However, it did take a LONG time to clear on one occasion, so patience may be in order. I have gotten a pronounced nose/flavor I can only describe as "green apples" with this one when fermenting a bigger beer at higher temperatures. I didn't consider it a flaw, but it did become more subdued as the beer aged.

My go to yeast.
I love making German style beers and this is my favorite yeast to use. I have never had any issues using it in my brews and fermentation has always started within 12hrs for me. A must try if your into German beers. Prost!!

Lager Like Yeast
This yeast performs very well. I ferment beer at 58F with this yeast and it is very clean. Even at low temps the yeast is a fast starter and finishes quickly (needs more head room and Ferm-Cap, it will puke) From pitch to final gravity the pH drops like a rock, going from 5.2 to 3.9. It makes an awesome Alt and Kolsch. This yeast is perfect for mock lagers up to 62-64F. Pitch high yeast counts, ferment low temps and let the yeast do it's magic. Does need a lager period @ 33-34F to clear.

2 packets, two different actions
I bought two packets of this for a 10 gallon batch at 1.055 original gravity. I split the batch into two fermenters, and while I initially considered mixing the yeast, I thought I would experiment and pitch the packets separately, one into each fermenter. Both fermenters are in the same location and at the ideal temp for this yeast, yet one fermenter's airlock is actively bubbling away with a large krausen and the other has a weak krausen with no airlock activity at all. This makes me wonder about consistency with this yeast. I know there are other indicators of fermentation, but whatever the action, it should be the same from the same strain of yeast in the same batch of beer. Other than that, I generally like this yeast (but previously I have only used one packet at a time).

Has anyone ever used this for mead? Like a fall style mead? Also how much can a packet be used for? 1 or 5 gallons

BEST ANSWER: Hi Josh,

Thanks for contacting us! I'm not sure if it has been used for mead, but it certainly would work. As for pitching rates, it would depend on your OG. If you had 5 gallons of high OG must, you might need 2 packets. But I would refer to a pitching rate calculator to be sure.
