Wyeast PC 2352 Munich Lager II
« on: October 18, 2015, 11:31:57 PM »
Anyone have any experience using this yeast strain before?  It is the new Private collection and is available through Dec of this year.  Was thinking of using it to brew a Helles, Vienna, and Dunkel.  Please let me know good or bad....

Thanks!

I haven't tried it, but it's allegedly the Augustiner strain, so I think it would be good for any of those styles.

Thanks, Sean. I should've looked before posting. That was silly of me.

What grain bill are you going with for your helles?

Im not committing until I mill it. In fact im considering going after the 2015 5C Helles Exportbier instead. My current helles is 1.050 86% Best Pils 14% Best Vienna 28g Mittelfruh at 60 and 28g at 10. If I switch to Helles Export I'll bump the gravity to 1.060, bitter with Magnum and put 56g Mittelfruh in the WP for 30 at 170. Mashing low and long, tracking ph so it is about 4.2 in the glass.

Has anyone brewed their planned beers with this strain yet?  I brewed a helles yesterday, and pitched a 1 liter shaken-not-stirred starter of 2352 about 14 hours ago at high krausen.  This is my first helles (and only my second lager ever) so I am not really sure what to expect.  I am not seeing any visible signs of fermentation at this point.  I'm used to seeing my ales take off within 12 hours or so, but I realize lagers can take longer.  Pitched and holding at 52 degrees.  Can anyone who has used this strain advise on the expected lag time?  Also, if you have sampled the beer yet, what do you think of the strain?

Thanks!

I ended up pitching a blend (pack of 2308 and pack of 2352) but just brewed it yesterday. Dont expect to "see" activity such as bubbling in the airlock as quickly as with ales. At cold temps lag is a little longer and the colder wort holds more co2 in solution before off gassing.

I have a Helles brewing on it presently,  concurrent with fermenters onWL Zurich and Danish. Only a week in but the "Augustiner" took off like a rocket from a slurry pitch. Fermentation appears very powdery compared to the Zurich which has remained more "clear", while the Danish looks like a pretty standard lager fermentation. I'll take some reading this weekend and see where we're at. I know the Zurich is a bit of an odd duck.

What, you mixed yeast??? Now you won't get the full effect of the 2352!
I really want to try this stuff. I've got wlp838 rollin' right now, but that shouldn't stop me from picking some of this stuff up before it's too late...
