Czech Budejovice Lager Yeast - WLP 802
When looking for the cleanest strain of lager yeast out there, WLP802 Czech Budejovice Lager Yeast will certainly make it to the final cut, if not top the entire list.
This strain was sourced from the famous Budejovicky Mestansky Pivovar, where the original Czech Budweiser beer hails from.
Flavour-wise, the strain is defined by utmost balance, clean palate and low diacetyl production, which in combination produces some of the cleanest and tastiest lager beers in the world.
|Description|| The dry character of all the beers fermented with WLP802 Czech Budejovice Lager Yeast is due to the high attenuation rates this strain exhibits.
