Mangrove Jack M84 Bohemian Lager (11.5g) is a classic bottom-fermenting, continental lager strain that produces elegant, well balanced beers.
Bohemian Lager Yeast is characterised b y its dry and clean palate, typical of traditional Czech brewing. This strain confers smooth, subtle yeast characteristics with muted fruit notes, resulting in refreshingly crisp lagers with expressive hop character.
While rich and chewy, the beers fermented with this strain will not be sweet, but may have an elusive sweet malt flavour in the aftertaste. Lagering periods as short as 4 weeks may produce acceptable beer, but allowing beer to lager 6-8 weeks will result in beer that is richer, smoother, with a more refined aroma and flavor.
Suitable for all types of European Lagers. Ideal for Czech Pils, German Pilsner.
Usage Directions: Sprinkle 2 sachets directly on up to 23 L (6 US Gal) of wort. For best results, ferment at 10-15 degrees C (50-59 degrees F).
Classic Bohemian Pilsner strain aroma and flavor characteristics can be expected.
FLAVOR/MOUTH FEEL CHARACTERISTICS:
Earthy spiciness of both noble hops and pilsner malt will be enhanced and supported by moderate to full body. In wort from simple grist bills, delicate malt flavors will survive. Beer fermented with this strain is generally rich and chewy without being heavy at all. Light and delicately balanced beers call for this strain.
HIGHER ALCOHOL BEERS:
This strain will perform reasonably well in higher alcohol beer production, but only to 9% alcohol. Beer of over 7% alcohol will be slightly sweet, and the alcohol may be a bit hot.
