Imperial Yeast L13 Global
The world most popular organic lager strain is ready for you. Global is an all-around solid lager strain that produces clean beers with a very low ester profile. This strain is versatile and is great to use with lagers or Pilsners for fermentations on the lower temperature range but can be used for common beer with fermentations at higher temperatures (65-68°F 18-20°C). This strain is very powdery, so long lagering times or filtration is required for bright beer.
*NOTE:*During summer months, we include complimentary ice packs will all liquid yeast orders. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will stay frozen given transit times and particularly hot temperatures. For this reason, we recommend ordering dry yeast during summer months.
|Yeast Disclaimer||We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary ice packs with all liquid yeasts. It is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.|

I normally only purchase the dry yeast packs because we live in warmer climates and shipping can sometimes disrupt yeast strains but decided to try the imperial yeast global for my beer. I was extremely delighted at the outcome and would highly recommend this product to anyone who brews.
The beer tastes great. No complaints on the yeast.
I made a pretty standard pilsner recipe with this and it turned out very drinkable however it seems to be a bit estery. I made a 2 liter starter, fermentation temps were in the low 50s, and let lager for about 4 weeks. There it this fruity melon taste to it, just not very crisp like I was hoping for. I wàshed the yeast and will try again hopefully it will be more lager like this go around.
I have been brewing steadily for about 7 years now, mostly with products from NB.I have had hardly an issue and if I did it was my error. So the imperial yeast worked great.
Used this to brew an imperialized Miller Lite clone that I had made once before about two years ago. I hadn’t used Imperial yeast on the first batch but after trying this brand on several other batches I’ve basically converted all my recipes to Imperial strains. My OG was 1.060 and finished out around 1.008. I’m pleased with the fermentionation that it got and now I’m just waiting on my bottles to carbonate. Stoked to try the final product in a couple weeks.
