SKU# YP920

Flat Rate Shipping only $7.99 only from Northern Brewer
From Southern Germany, this yeast finishes malty with a slight ester profile. Use in beers such as Oktoberfest, Bock, and Dark Lagers.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary Cold Ice Packs with all liquid yeasts. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip, given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Sehr Bayerisch
a great option when creating malt-driven bavarian beers. i wish this yeast was year-round; however, the 833 and 820 are also great. any bavarian style lager will benefit from its use although i think it works best w/ a Kellerbier. i would stay away from crafting North German/Germanic lagers such as Pils and Baltic Porter as it is a very malt-driven yeast. if one wishes to suppress its estery side; just ferment a bit lower than recommended.

Is it possible to use these yeast to produce baltic porter? Or maybe i should use WLP830 instead?

BEST ANSWER: yes, it is possible to use the 920 on a baltic porter; however, given its lower attenuation, one must culture up quite a bit of yeast for particular project and the yeast itself emphasizes malt. the 920 is more for bavarian brews and particularly nice in a Kellerbier or Dunkel. any of the w-34/70 strains (2124/830 and saflager w-34/70) would do fine but i think even more so i'd choose the 2042 danish lager yeast. it's a low-flocc strain so it'll stay around to get the job done, clarity shouldn't be a problem w/ a darker brew and if it is; a sufficient lagering time would take care of that. i find it finishes crisper than the w-34/70 strains and would provide a clean canvas for your malt and hops. hope this helps!
