A great yeast but....
This is a great yeast, but it's a Carlsberg strain which is known to be fruity. To reduce or eliminate the fruitiness, it's important to pitch low @ 42-44F and let it come up slowly to 46-48F and let it set there for 3-4 days. Then start bringing it up to 50-52F until it's nearly complete. After that do a D-rest at @62F for 5-10 days.

With a large pitch this yeast will churn at 46F. Very clean and crisp after a good lagering.

Great Lager Yeast
Works great at 46 - 52 degrees. It does produce a some amount of sulfur, but give it a proper time to lager and this will go away and produce a great beer!

Great Pilsner yeast
It's my favorite Pilsner yeast. Attenuates well. And makes beer.

best yeast around
I have tried other yeast strains in my german lagers but I really enjoy the flavor of this yeast. It is very predictable and provides consistent attenuation and flavor profile. I have tried most of the other German strains but always come back to this one.

Very easy and clean
This is my favorite lager yeast. It is easy to use, consistent, and extremely clean. I love using it for Pils, Helles, and Oktoberfest beers as this yeast attenuates really well.Make sure to give it a diacetyl rest a week or so after the bubbles have ceased in primary for maximum smoothness.

Dear Sir:

I have a vial of White Labs German lager yeast 830 that is labeled for fermentation temperature in the range of 70-75 degrees.Your site indicates 50-55 degrees which I would think is correct.Could it be that the vial is mislabeled?

Also,I want to make a hard cider.I am going to use a local source for the apple cider.Besides the apple cider(1 gallon),what else do I need?

Thanks ,Mike(DRRDBNES@cox.net)

BEST ANSWER: The vial will read a recommended temperature at which you want to add the yeast - you would then adjust the fermentation temperature to the recommended range. There are different reasons to either pitch at a higher temp or pitch at the recommended fermentation temp...either works fine

just keep in mind that changing the temperature while fermenting needs to be done slowly


degrees every 12 hours usually. I hope this helps!
