Looking for extra yeast for homebrewing beer? Try SafLager S-23 Berlin Lager Dry Yeast, a strain used for fermenting lagers.

This yeast hails from Berlin, and is used by many European commercial breweries. It's a great yeast for making American or European lagers, Czech Pilsners or Pre-Prohibition Lagers.

This strain thrives in a fermentation temperature range of 50-57°F. Within this range, it will develop its best lager notes, producing fruity & ester-y notes. This flexible yeast can also ferment with a warmer range of 61-68°F if you don't have the ability to maintain true lager temperatures.

SafLager S-23 Berlin Lager Dry Yeast flocculates well, meaning it clumps & falls out of suspension for better sediment separation. It also has good attenuation for a clean, dry finish.

This active dry yeast does not require hydration or a yeast starter to begin fermentation. If you want to reduce lag phase and grow yeast cell count, consider our Yeast Starter Kit. This 11g packet treats a 5 gallon batch of beer.

How To Use SafLager S-23 Berlin Lager Dry Yeast When Brewing 5 Gallons Of Beer:

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