Does anyone have an experience with the Vierka Lager dry yeasts? There
is a light and dark/munich version. www.Vierka.de states that the
fermentation temp should be around 45F. Descriptions of these yeasts
on homebrew sites state that the recommnded temp is 55F.
The directions on the back of the package are a bit silly. Leave at
room temp for 5 days then cool. I'm willing to ignore this bad advice
given bettter advice on the website.
There are certainly lots of older homebrew recipes that used Vierka.
And the HBD archives contain both postive statements and negative ones.
