Imperial Yeast L28 Urkel
A traditional Czech lager organic strain, Urkel allows for balance between hops and malt. It is the perfect choice for Bohemian-style Pilsners. This strain can be slightly sulphery during fermentation, but it cleans up during lagering. Fermentation at the higher temperature range will produce a beer with minimal sulfur and a light ester profile.
*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.|

Fermented low and slow. Beer was excellent
The imperial L28 Urkel arrived mid summer as dead on arrival. Have not brewed as yet.
You sent me a package of years with an October 2019 manufacture date. By the time I received the yeast it was past it’s “ use within three months” date. It was dead and I was not pleased.
Lagering like a champ at 47-51*F. Allowing time and true lager temperatures to clean and clear my German leichtbier. Excited to see how it turns out.
