WLP925 HP Lager Yeast
For when you need to brew a proper lager but need to do it really fast, WLP925 High Pressure Lager Yeast is definitely an indispensable fermenter that can deliver great results within a limited time-span.
It is generally used unorthodoxically for a lager yeast, since primary fermentation is usually carried out at room temperature and pressure of 14.7 PSI, which brings the wort down to final gravity in less than a week.
This is followed by a rapid lagering period carried out at typical lagering temperature at a higher pressure, which usually takes less than 5 days, after which the beer is ready for consumption.White Labs note: Ferment at room temperature 62-68°F until final gravity is obtained, generally in one week. Sulfur production is strong the first 2 days, then disappears by day 5. It is not necessary to carbonate this type of lager.
High Pressure Lager YeastTake note that WLP925 High Pressure Lager Yeast tends to produce high level of sulphur at the initial stage of fermentation that tends to dissipate in a couple of days. It is a very good attenuator that can deliver crisp and dry beers, yet the general flavour character of WLP925 is often described as leaning towards the malty side of the spectrum. It is an excellent yeast for producing virtually all styles of lager beers, particularly suited for making Pilsners, Helles, American and Vienna Lagers within a period of time much shorter than an ordinary lager strain will require.
