Another Urquell strain, this one is for more advanced brewers.  This yeast needs a bit more hand holding than some other lager strains, but if properly managed, the rewards can be glorious.

Originating from the home of great Pilsners in the Czech Republic, this classic Pilsner strain will finish dry and malty. It is the perfect choice for Pilsners and all malt beers. Sulfur produced during fermentation can be reduced with warmer fermentation temperatures 58°F (14°C) and will dissipate with conditioning.

Flocculation: Medium-High
Attenuation: 70-74%
Temperature Range: 50-58F, 10-14C
Alcohol Tolerance: 9% ABV

Bohemian Pilsner

For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast.

Fermented for three weeks in the mid to upper 50's and can't detect any diacetyl. Pleased with with early 40° (two week old) lager samples.
