SafLager™ S-23 Fermentis Dry Lager Yeast
Gently stir for 30 minutes, and pitch the resultant cream into the fermentation vessel.
Alternatively, pitch the yeast directly in the fermentation vessel providing the temperature of the wort is above 20°C (68°F). Progressively
sprinkle the dry yeast into the wort ensuring the yeast covers all the surface of wort available in order to avoid clumps. Leave for 30 minutes,
then mix the wort using aeration or by wort addition.
profile gives beers with a good length on the palate.

I bought it and put it in the fridgerator.
Very good yeast for all my German lagers.
Iíve really enjoyed using this yeast as it finishes very clean and Iíve yet to have an issue with a brew while using this yeast: Marzen, Octoberfest and Czech Pils primarily. I typically ferment between 54-52 degrees with this and pitch two packs into my lager if OG is below 1.060. Doing a starter also has worked well to utilize one packet. 6 days at the temp range above will hit 75% of targeted attenuation for sure so I DR at room temp for the next 4 days. Then I just crash and keg to lager maybe 2 weeks if I can wait that long. Iíve been interested in washing this yeast for reuse as an experiment but a tip Iíve learned is to just collect the trub in a ziplock bag, (inside is already sterile from manufacture), after fermentation and it should last a couple weeks to pitch into fresh wort. An alternative technique is to rack new wort onto the trub. With this particular strain, I have done a pressure fermentation at 14psi on a Yuengling clone and it turned out awesome. Terminal gravity was hit in 3 days according to my Tilt. The only improvement would be to use a floating dip tube to siphon off cleaner beer from the top or do a closed system transfer to a sanitized keg with some gelatin in it and youíll be golden. AIH also offers a dip tube filter that can be clamped onto the end to filter large particles to filter than way. Very versatile yeast overall and a staple in my brew supply closet.
This is the first time I've used this yeast. It was a bit slow to start but that was to be expected.
