Oktoberfest champion
LOVE this yeast! Have used it primarily for my oktoberfest, and it performs beautifully. Lots of maltiness with just the right amount of slight dryness to the finish. Handed out "to-go" cups of this brew to my adult friends when they stopped by for trick-or-treat to rave reviews! Have repitched WLP833 several times, and it seems to maintain it's integrity without much change. This is my favorite lager yeast.

Very good bock yeast
I used this for the first time on this years octoberfest. I made a 1 liter starter with it. Although it took a while to start after pitching, lik 8 hours, it was much more atenuative then I would have thought. It got the wort to Fg after 5 days... Much faster then other strains I have used. There is a bit of character from the yeast in the final product.. Very clean after only 2 weeks @ 38f

Great Yeast
I used this yeast in a Doppelbock and it produced a great malty flavor. This started relatively quick for a lager yeast.

What is the shelf life of this yeast?
David B on Apr 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If properly stored, it is in great shape between 0-2 months of age, good condition from 3-4 months of age, and fair condition from 5-6 months of age. After six months of age, the amount of healthy living yeast in the package has seriously declined.

Also, this is a great lager yeast, but you will need to make a starter or use a bunch of it to make a great lager.
