WL833 - Bock Lager - Czech Pils?

(1/4) > >>

blatz:
Hey all - I usually use 830 but am looking to experiment with using 833 in a vienna, dunkel and golden bock


But before I get into that series, I was looking to brew a Czech Pils - anyone tried a Czech Pils using 833 - I know its not the ideal yeast, but I was hoping to get a good slurry going and this would be an ideal starting point.

redbeerman:
Never have Paul.  I have done Helles, Ofest and doppelbocks which all came out great, but no hop centric beers like pils.  833 seems to accentuate the maltiness of the brew.  Might turn out good if you hop toward the high end of BU:GU for the style.

The local Craft Lager brewery used 833 for a Czech pils and it did a great job. Might be my choice this year. Jeff Gladish had a PU clone that I tasted that was very good, and that was done with 860, a seasonal Munich strain. My PU clone was too dry, and I used the PU yeast.

mmitchem:
Simply put - WLP833 is the shiznit. Awesome yeast for any german style IMO. This is the Ayinger strain and I love their beers, so it makes sense that this yeast is rock solid as well. If I had to choose only one lager strain to ever use again, it would be WLP833.

The judges indicated that that beer could have used a bit more malt complexity.  Next time I think I'll use the same yeast, but try to get my hands on some undermodified pils malt for the decoctions.
