White Labs Yeast - 820 Oktoberfest

White Labs Yeast - 820 Oktoberfest


This yeast produces a very malty, bock like style. It does not finish as dry as WLP830. This yeast is much slower in the first generation than WLP830, so we encourage a larger starter to be used the first generation or schedule a longer lagering time.

I pitched this (with a yeast starter) 8 days ago into 5ish gallons. This yeast began active fermentation within 24 hours and hasn't stopped. The gravity has gone from .060 to .032 since I pitched it. The beer is still actively fermenting. This beer is my first lager so I am learning how lagers go at such a slower pace than ale yeast.

I'm also getting a sulfur smell (not taste) from the beer - which I guess is also normal of lagers. Hopefully this all isn't happening because I pitched too short. I'm going to tryout the quick lagering method on this. I'm almost at the second phase where I ramp up the temperature. Let's hope I get this into bottles within 4 weeks.
