Lager Yeast

Select an option:

Looking for extra yeast for homebrewing beer? Try our Lager Yeast, a strain used in our Light Craft Lager Home Beer Brewing Kit. A pre-measured 2 gram packet ferments 1 gallon of beer.

Our Lager Yeast comes from Weihenstephan in Germany, and is used world wide. It produces beers with a balance of floral and fruity aromas and with clean flavors for incredibly drinkable beers. This lager yeast is very similar to SafLager W-34/70 German Lager Dry Yeast.

This Lager Yeast is different from other ale yeasts. It thrives in cooler fermentation temperatures. This particular strain can tolerate warmer fermentations (up to 72 °F), but performs best in a fermentation temperature range of 53 - 64 °F.

Our active dry yeasts do not require hydration or a yeast starter to begin fermentation. 

HOW-TO use our Lager Yeast in a 1 gallon beer:

1. Ensure wort is chilled to 75 °F or below.
2. Pitch entire packet & aerate for a full minute to begin fermentation.
