Whitelabs Oktoberfest Marzen Lager yeast WLP820

Whitelabs WLP820 Oktoberfest Marzen Lager Yeast

The first choice for true to style Oktoberfest Marzen style lagers.

​WLP820 is renowned for its accentuation of malt profile as you would expect for a true to style Marzen.

We also use this strain for Bocks and Doppelbocks with large starters and occassionally for our house Bavarian Helles for a lift.

​For first use pitch with a single pack, we suggest making a stir plated starter at 1.040 of around 5L. If wanting to direct pitch the starter while active, make the starter from the original wort and pitch at high krausen after 24 hrs.

​Best fermented at 11-13 deg C and when attenuated to about 65%, slowly raise the temp 1 deg per day until you reach 16 and hold for 3 days until FG is confirmed. Benefits from long lagering times. 4-6 months for a true Marzen. 6-8 weeks for other styles for best results.

Don't forget to order icepacks HERE Whitelabs yeasts will not be posted out on Fridays due to probable Weekend delays over a weekend. Express post available or the area between Gold Coast and Rockhampton can use Fastway Couriers for overnight delivery.
