Mexican Lager Yeast - WLP 940
Mexican Lagers are famous for being light, crisp, and insanely refreshing – exactly the type of drink you’d want to enjoy in the searing heat of Mexico City. And it’s only natural for this particular style of lager beer to employ a proprietary yeast strain, evolved in breweries across Mexico to tackle the task of producing light lager beers suitable for the local climate.
WLP940 Mexican Lager Yeast is an excellent lager strain that produces crisp, dry beers with a very neutral flavour; use it in any lager beer style.
|Description||WLP940 Mexican Lager Yeast is a good attenuator – something you would expect from such a strain – with medium alcohol tolerance and medium flocculation. It tends to produce really clean flavours, with virtually no esters, sulphur, or diacetyl, resulting in nice, balanced, crisp beers.
This makes WLP940 a universal lager strain, since it can be used for fermenting virtually any lager beer style, from light Pilsner and American Lagers to full-bodied Bocks and Swarzbiers, since it lends room for both hops and malts to shine through in the final beer.
