Pitching/Fermentation: Versatile, crisp, malty profile, light esters and a wide fermentation range. This is thought to be the world's most used lager strain and can produce a convincing lager at ale temperatures. Fermenting in the low temperature range (45-55 Degrees F), it maintains a more crisp profile. Temperatures higher in range (65-68 Degrees F) bring out slightly heightened esters. Rest for diacetyl.
