This is a Wyeast Private Collection strain and is available from October to December.
Direct from the Austrian Alps, this strain will produce rich, full-bodied and malty beers with a complex flavor profile and a great mouth feel. Attenuates well while still leaving plenty of malt character and body. Beers fermented with this strain will benefit from a temperature rise for a diacetyl rest at the end of primary fermentation.
Beer Styles: Lager, Oktoberfest/Marzen, Munich Dunkel, Schwarzbier, Traditional Bock, Maibock/Hellesbock, Dopplebock, Eisbock
Alc. Tolerance 12% ABV
Temp. Range 48-56°F (9-13°C)
Please note: It is highly recommended that a cold pack be purchased when ordering liquid yeast. High Gravity cannot guarantee the viability of liquid yeast if it fails to work unless it was purchased with a cold pack. You can add it to the order by checking the cold pack box near the bottom of the page before adding the yeast to the cart.

If there is a strain you’d like them to feature, a brewery whose Proprietary Strain you’d like to brew with, an award-winning beer recipe you’ll allow them to post on their website, or if you’d like to provide Wyeast with any feedback at all… please contact them!
