WLP820 Oktoberfest Märzen Lager Yeast

WLP820 Oktoberfest Märzen Lager Yeast


This strain is ideal for producing malty lagers. Residual sweetness further helps promote malt nuances while contributing to a balanced finish. The first generation of this strain can be slow, so we encourage using a larger initial culture or scheduling longer fermentation and conditioning times. Great for lagers with a wide gravity range including bocks, doppelbocks, märzens, Oktoberfests and American amber lagers.


ATTENUATION: 65% - 73%
