(BY640-2007) This is an authentic American Lager liquid beer yeast. It has very clean, subdued characteristics. Gives a smooth, malty overall impression to the beer. Combine these qualities with its great attenuation rate and you have beer yeast that works great for traditional, American-syle homebrews where a dry, clean finish is preferred. This is a true Lager yeast, so be prepared to ferment it at cooler temperatures for best flavor.
