Quality lager yeast

Easy to store and use. I have used this yeast to make excellent Czech, German, Classic American Pilsner lagers as well as Helles and Oktoberfest lagers.

Works as Advertised

This yeast has consistently produced excellent results for me. I did a comparison with S-23 using the same wort of OG1.047. W34/70 had an FG of 1.010 while S-23 finished a little higher at 1.013, and as such W34/70 produced a clean crisp beer suitable for most traditional German and adjunct American styles. I've recycle the yeast two generations producing fine beers both times. Personally I see no advantage of using more expensive liquid yeast for producing lagers of excellent quality.

Did just fine.

I have a chilly basement, low 60s. This lager yeast came through with no butterscotch flavors. Just malt and hops in a very nice beer, overall.

Not Just for Lager

I found W-34/70 has a wide temperature tolerance and actually makes a better crisper and sharper hop profile in cool fermented American IPA's. If you like your American IPA's (Especially Simcoe/Amarillo/Cascade blends) to taste like Great Lakes Brewing Company this is the yeast to use. _x000D__x000D_Also a fantastic Lager strain for hoppy pilsners as well as classic bavarian styles.
