When it comes to brewing beer, yeast is an essential ingredient. And when it comes to yeast strains, Einstein from WHC Labs is a great choice for all lager styles. This dried version of a German Lager yeast has a clean profile, low ester formation during fermentation and medium sulphur production.

It’s a good bottom-fermenting yeast strain for cold fermentation, making it a perfect choice for brewing refreshing, crisp lagers. So if you’re looking to brew a delicious lager, be sure to give Einstein from WHC Labs a try. You won’t be disappointed.

German Lager Yeast, 34-70, Weihenstephaner

The yeast used for a German lager is Saccharomyces pastorianus, a bottom-fermenting yeast that produces subtle flavours and gives the beer its crisp finish. Other types of yeast used for brewing beer include top-fermenting yeast (S. cerevisiae) and Brettanomyces, a wild yeast that can add notes of fruit, spice, or funk to the beer.

The main difference between ale yeast and lager yeast is the temperature at which they ferment. Lager yeasts ferment at cooler temperatures, while ale yeasts ferment at warmer temperatures. This difference in temperature results in different flavours being produced by the two types of yeast. Ale yeasts produce fruity and estery flavours, while lager yeasts produce more malt-like flavours.

Lager yeast is a type of bottom-fermenting yeast. This means that it ferments at the bottom of the fermentation vessel, and is better suited to brewing at lower temperatures than other types of yeast. The word “lager” comes from the German word meaning “to store”, and refers to the fact that this style of beer was traditionally fermented and stored at cooler temperatures than other beers. Lager yeasts produce a clean, crisp flavour profile, making them popular for brewing lighter-bodied styles of beer like pilsners and blonde ales.
