A new year brings new opportunities during our favorite winter months. Whether you are looking to hone your brewing skills, try new brewing techniques, or simply find the right après ski beer; this private collection features European lager strains perfect for a wide variety of seasonally-intrinsic brews.

For those fond of light-bodied lagers and pilsners, you’ll enjoy working with 2001-PC Pilsner Urquell H-Strain and 2042-PC Danish Lager. Beers crafted from these strains pair well with lighter food, mild cheddars, and are incredibly refreshing after a long day of skiing.

Nice and crisp

Used this yeast in my own Pilsener recipe. Came out great even though I exceeded the recommended temperature a bit during fermentation (don't have refrigeration, so have to rely on ambient temperature being low enough). I lagered at 10-16C for 6 weeks. The beer is nice, crispy and clean, no off tones whatsoever.

Good Strong Starter and Finisher

I double pitched 2 of these into a 4L starter for a Bohemian Pilsner recipe. It ran on a stir plate for 36 hours and was completely finished. It crashed completely in the fridge after 24 hours for decanting purposes. This strain was a fast starter and fermented strong for 10 days. The final gravity from a 1.057 OG was 1.013, so it finished well considering my 154 degree mash rest. The malt and hop balance are fantastic with t his strain. It also clears bright in a short amount of time. I will use it again. I Followed this ferment regimen for my batch: Fermented at 48, dropped to 45 at high krausen, then to 40 for three days at late krausen, no diacetyl rest required.
