The yeast produces very clean lagers, works well at cold temperatures, and flocculates better than most lagers, making it easy to harvest and reuse.

  1. Parker Rush

    Its working well we just repitched it last week and its ripping!

  2. TalkingCursiveBrewing (verified owner)

    Our house lager strain. Ferments cleanly and quickly and produces a very clear lager with out having to use filtration or fining agents. Helped us take home a silver medal for our Bohemian Pilsner last year at the NYS Brewers Association’s Awards.

    Only thing better than this yeast is Propagate’s customer service!

  3. Old 121 Brewhouse (verified owner)

    We make a lot of lagers and almost exclusively use this Andechs strain from Propagate. It’s a rigorous yeast that rips fast and produces high quality clean lagers. From Pilsners to Baltic Porters it gets the job done.
