Any satisfactory dry lager yeasts?

Post by Thomas T. Veldhous » Sat, 19 Aug 2006 21:32:16



I have seen this topic discussed many times in the past.  But I want to ask
again anyway, especially considering that the quality of yeast has increased
so remarkably in the dry yeast market.  

Are there any dry yeasts that have been giving consistantly satisfactory
results for bohemian or bavarian yeast profiles?

Thank you in advance for you feedback.

Check the archives -- I've posted some preliminary results with W34/70 a
couple of weeks ago (search for W34/70). Bottom line is that I did two
beers. The first one kind of sucked, but it likely had nothing to do
with the yeast. The beer pitched on top of that one was very nice.

As far as I know you can only get 34/70 from B3 -- I assume they
repackage it. Paddock Wood in Candada sells a repackaged S-189, but I
don't think they will ship it into the US. I haven't heard anything good
about S-23 (right number?), the lager yeast made directly available to
homebrewers.
