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.

Great stuff
I used this yeast to make a Papazians "Klibbety Jibbett". This yeast ferments quickly and vigorously. I started fermenting at 58 dropping to 50 for 3 wks then racked to secondary and lagered around 40 for 3 more. Finished beer was, smooth, creamy, and a big hit with the light beer drinkers. Very bright. There are some estery notes which continued to develop over the 3 weeks or so this beer existed. Not sure if this was due to the corn in the recipe or the yeast. Great Pilsner yeast!

Fermenting pilsner urquell? Duration and temperature?
A shopper on Mar 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: For the first use of the yeast pack, ferment for 12 days at 48F. For second or third use, stop ferment when wort reaches 1.015. The 12-12-12 rule applies to Pilsner Urquell: ferment for 12 days at 12C, then lager for 12 weeks. Good luck!
when do you expect to have this yeast in stock?
