Copenhagen Lager Yeast - WLP 850
For a nice, clean and balanced lager similar in spirit to the best Northern European commercial examples try WLP850 Copenhagen Lager Yeast.
This strain was sourced from one of the biggest breweries in Denmark that is famous for its clean and neutral beers, and now you can also get the clearest lager beers at your home by simply using this strain.
It is a good attenuator that leaves virtually no residual sugar, resulting in a crisp and dry finish, leaving space for both malt and hop flavours to enrich the overall palate of the beer.
