    First time using this strain of yeast from WYeast, and in fact my first time brewing a lager. I followed advice on the WYeast website, choosing to pitch the yeast into well aerated wort at 18°C, maintaining this temp for 24 hours, when signs of active fermentation were evident by a bubbling airlock. I then dropped the temp down to 12°C, leaving in primary for 2 weeks. After 48 hours diacetyl rest at 18°C, I then kegged the beer and left for 4 weeks at 4°C to condition.
    Results: beer is crystal clear, taste-wise: very crisp and dry as you would expect. The malt profile from the beer is very noticeable
    Overall: like all of WYeast’s products I found this to be top notch. One word of caution, temp control is crucial imho, so I wouldn’t recommend using this yeast if you don’t have the benefit of a kegerator to control fermentation temp.

    Following my previous review, I used this product again (just one) with great results.

    Had I used my normal Mangrove Jack yeast I'd have needed two sachets, which would have more or less been the same price as this.

    I like the product and WYeast is becoming my preferred choice for yeast
