Lager Yeast

Lager yeast, saccharomyces pastorianus, is used in the production of lagers. It is more cryo-tolerant than ale strains and better at consuming maltotriose.

MIP-620 Andechs Lager

This particular lager yeast is from a former monastery brewery in Germany. This strain is one of the most well behaved lager yeasts in the world. The yeast produces very clean lagers, works well at cold temperatures, and flocculates better than most lagers, making it easy to harvest and reuse. If you are brewing a lager beer, regardless of the style, this yeast will make it great. Consistently among Propagate's top 5 sellers.
