Elevate your lager brewing with White Labs WLP4035 Hessian Pils Lager Yeast, a premium strain that encapsulates the crisp, clean character of classic German Pilsners. This yeast is perfect for brewers looking to achieve the refined, delicate balance of bitterness and maltiness that is the hallmark of Hessian Pilsners.

Key Features:

  • Style Precision: Tailored for crafting Pilsner and other lager styles, WLP4035 is adept at producing beers with a clear, bright profile and a smooth finish.
  • Flavor and Aroma: Produces a subtle, clean palate with minimal esters, allowing the hops' floral and spicy notes to shine through, complemented by a soft malt background.
  • Fermentation Temperatures: Performs best at cooler fermentation temperatures, typically between 50-55°F (10-13°C), facilitating a slow, steady fermentation that contributes to its clean flavor profile.
  • Attenuation and Flocculation: Features high attenuation and medium flocculation, resulting in a dry, crisp beer with good clarity.

Guidance for Use:

  1. Pitching: For lagers, a higher pitching rate of about 1.5 to 2 million cells per mL per degree Plato is recommended to ensure a robust fermentation.
  2. Aeration: Adequate aeration of the wort is crucial to support the yeast's health and vigor throughout the lagering process.
  3. Temperature Control: Keep the fermentation temperature within the 50-55°F (10-13°C) range to promote the clean, crisp characteristics typical of Hessian Pilsners.
  4. Lagering: After primary fermentation, a prolonged lagering phase at near-freezing temperatures will help to develop the beer’s smoothness and clarity.

White Labs WLP4035 Hessian Pils Lager Yeast is the ideal choice for brewers aiming to create authentic German Pilsners with a refined taste. Its ability to produce beers with a clean fermentation profile and a delicate balance makes it a top selection for lager enthusiasts seeking precision and quality in their brews.
