Product details

Wyeast 2000 Budvar is a very malty, low sulfur-producing yeast from a brewery in the Czech Republic. Allows the brewer to leave residual sweetness in the beer. Flocculates at a warmer temperature than many lager yeasts, which allows the brewer to more easily leave residual sweetness in the beer. The Budvar style strain has a nice malty nose with subtle fruit tones and a rich malt profile on the palate. It finishes malty but dry, well balanced, and crisp. Hop character comes through in the finish.

Yeast Characteristics:

  • Temp Range: 48-56°F
  • Attenuation: 71-75%
  • Flocculation: Medium-High
  • ABV Tolerance: 9%

Recommended Styles/Recipe Kits:

This "Reveiw" Should be removed. Sounds like you got an infection or brewed with tap water. Dont blame the yeast. Sounds like poor brewing practices not this fine yeast

I wish every beer tasted as good as this yeast produces. This yeast will produce world class bohemian lagers. Be fore warned, this yeast must be lagered for at least 6 weeks. 8 weeks perhaps depending on your conditions. I made several sample tastings at 4, 5, 6 and up through 12 weeks from the brew date and around 6 weeks this yeast started to shine. The taste prior was clearly green and undrinkable, however at around 8 weeks from brew date this beer went from a one star beer to a five star beer.

We used this yeast for two of our beers: a biere de garde and a Czech pilsner. We were originally excited for the biere de garde because it took to the beer very aggressively-we got up to 9%. However, it left the beer with a very medicine-like flavor, masking the malt and making it almost undrinkable. To a lesser extent, the medicine flavor was produced in the pilsner as well. We are going to be doing more batches of each of these beers but this yeast will not make the recipe list.
