Brewers love this lager yeast strain for its versatility; it will impress you with it's ability to ferment pretty much any lager style you throw at it. This great lager strain combines good flocculation characteristics with low sulfur and low diacetyl. Clean fermentations produce amazing bock, Helles, pilsner, dunkles, and just about any other lager style you throw its way. Fantastic choice for a house lager strain.

Brewing Properties of Harvest
The functional properties of brewing yeasts have a direct impact on the performance, quality and economics of the resulting beer.
The alcohol tolerance determines the ABV at which yeast cells go dormant and stop fermenting.
Attenuation refers to the percentage of sugars converted to alcohol and carbon dioxide, as measured by specific gravity.
Flocculation refers to the tendency of yeast to form clumps called "flocs" that drop in order to make the beer clear.
The optimal temperature is the range in which the yeast performs best without putting off any off-flavors. Pitching the yeast into wort usually happens at the low end of the temperature range.
