More about Wyeast Q1 2023 Private Collection: Legacy Curation
2272-PC North American Lager and 2352-PC Munich Lager II are used to make the country’s favorite lager styles. 2272-PC is the backbone to the American lager, the American Light Lager, and the International Lager. The flavors turn out to be smooth, highly-carbonated, and light-bodied, which makes them easy to drink at a lower ABV. For something more complex, 2352-PC will recreate the quintessential malty German lagers and showcase the elegance of ingredients.
