Hacker-Pschorr Yeast
« on: April 16, 2020, 12:27:01 pm »
Looking for the yeast used by Hacker-Pschorr, in their lagers such as Munich Gold. It is quite clean, not "yeasty" at all.
I like W-34/70, but it has more yeast character than what I'm looking for.

Any suggestions?

I don’t know their yeast, but I suggest that you consider the S-189 Hürlman dry yeast.  I use it a lot.  Some say that it is too clean, but it sounds like that is what you might be after in your yeast profile.

Cheers.

The cleanest yeast I have ever used was WLP 940. So clean it didn't taste German on a split batch of Pils, the WLP 830 did.

I have a Pils spunding with S-189. It will be awhile before I evaluate it.

The fact participants in this xBmt were unable to reliably distinguish a Vienna Lager fermented with Saflager W-34/70 from one fermented with Saflager S-189 doesn’t strike me as all that Earth shattering. After all, both are lager strains known for imparting a very restrained yeast character, allowing the other ingredients in a beer to shine through. And that’s pretty much what happened, based on both the blind data and my experience.

As I said somewhere , lager yeasts show a lot less variation than ale yeasts.
