Danstar Diamond Lager Yeast
« on: November 10, 2017, 07:23:54 PM »
Anyone have any experience with this yeast?
Thinking of using it for a Vienna lager next weekend.

Never used it, but I don't think I'd drink something called Diamond Lager  ;D

I used for the first time to brew a Vienna lager from Greg Hughes book and bottled a few days ago and tasted fantastic for my first attempt at brewing a lager.
Just rehydrate prior to pitching.

Only available to home brewers recently.

Do you know any commercial lagers that use it? It sounds very neutral from the description

Keep a few bottles back for the next meet in December, look forward to trying this
