WLP 835


Has anyone used the WLP 835 German Lager X strain, my wife pointed it out so we got a vial? From the White Labs site, I can only guess it is from Kloster Andechs. In English, Andechs would sound like Andex. The beers they say it is good for are what Andechs brews. Plan to use it for a Helles.

Here you go from White Labs...

WLP835 German Lager X
Classic yeast from a famous Bavarian monastery. This strain develops a creamy, malty beer profile with low sulfur production and low esters. It is a great choice for styles like traditional Helles, Oktoberfest, Bock, and Dunkel.
Attenuation : 70-76%
Flocculation: Med
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 50-54°F
Alcohol Tolerance: Medium-High

looked at it on  - interested, but I just got a starter of 833 going, so I may not get to it for a while (or at all as it is a Platinum I think?).

keep us posted.

Sounds interisting! Let us know how it works for you.

As said I will use it on 5 gallons of Helles. Either 833 or 838 for the other half as a comparison.
