Great all around Lager yeast
My first Governor regulator the tank pressure gauge pinned itself under the block pin after one use. I exchanged it for a new one. The new one worked for 2 brews, but now this one can't be trusted to be left alone. The manual pressure relief valve opens up if there's any CO2 pressure, and the cardboard backing came curled so the tank pressure gauge needle can't move. This is the worst thing ever, as it's completely unusable, so I would not recommend this to anyone in the future.

Great all around Lager yeast
I used this on a Vienna lager last year and it turned out great and I didn't do a full lager. I decided to use it on Bavarian Dunkel, we'll see how that turns out.

Go to lager yeast
Bought this a little over a year ago. First, it's not very good at adjusting pressure. I would set it and then come back sometime later to find it much higher/lower than what I set it at. Second, the regulator completely failed after a little over a year. I had just carbonated a new keg, set the pressure at 8 psi to dispense, and dispensed a few pints. The next morning I went into my garage and found my newly kegged beer all over the floor. When I opened my beer fridge I found the psi hovering between 40 and 50 psi. The high pressure was too much for the picnic faucet and casued it to leak all night. I immediately turned the regulator down as far as it would go and bled the regulator and keg. To no avail, the pressure went right back up to 40 psi...the thing is totaly busted. On the bright side it is a nice looking regulator, just doesn't work very well.

I always use this yeast for my spring time lager. Never had problems with it, no matter the pitching temp or amount. I do a small d-rest when it ferments cold. Always cleans itself up well.

My favorite
This yeast is my favorite lager yeast. Very tolerant, comes out crisp, clean and snappy.

fast fermentation
I used it for my first lager. I made a 2 liter starter culture for a 5 gal batch. After 1 week the predicted FG was reached already! Tastes already great. Doing a diacetyl rest right now, then lager . I can't wait for the final product.

This is an excellent product!
I have used this yeast for two batches of all-grain German Schwartzbier. For both batches, I made an appropriate starter per Jamil Zainasheff's and John Palmer's recipe in Brewing Classic Styles. I couldn't have been more pleased with the results. This yeast produces a very clean lager that allows the malt flavors to shine through. I will definitely be using this product again.

Give it time
Pack was slow to inflate, so be sure to give it time before pitching. Also, speaking of time, a starter might not be a bad idea for this type of yeast - again, more time and planning before brew day. Looking forward to seeing how it turned out!

How much to add to a bohemian pils? heard it takes more.

BEST ANSWER: I used 1 pack and a 2 liter starter for 5 gallons. A yeast calculator like Mr Malty can help. Probably 300B cells per 5 gallons.
