Without a doubt the best strain I've ever used for LoDO brewing.

Supposedly andechs, but it matters little imo since the yeast will behave differently in our small fermenters than it does for them, and there's bound to be some mutation every time the yeast changes hands.

I love Ayinger's and Weihenstephner's beer, but I dislike WLP833 and WLP830 for my own brewing.

I'd use yeast harvested from a hipster's beard if it gave good results :)

That's a pretty strong review. Think I'll throw 4 on a pre-order and if it goes through try it out as a new strain. Using 833 at the moment but have been debating trying to grab Iron Hill's lager yeast again (some sort of Czech strain, they fill up a mason jar free for home brewers).

Cool, that's good to know! I can walk to the Iron Hill in West Chester.

Bery nice, I have a bit of a drive out to Chestnut Hill but it's worthwhile. They switched from the Czech strain to 34/70.

Wyeast sells the W34/70 strain under the name Bohemian lager (2124). Early books (16th century) claim the yeast used for bottom fermentation originated in Bohemia. It was popularized in Bavaria, then ultimately isolated as a monoculture in Nordic country. Welcome to the world of identifying lager yeast...

Add that that the undignifying task of figuring out which one of the White Labs products is actually the W34/70. There are conflicting reports of first stating it is WLP830 and later silently rectify to WLP820 (Mr Malty).

I'd trust the Wyeast equivalent more than the White Labs.

For those amongst us having access to the HBW products, the W109 looks like the best one for traditional Helles. I'll certainly give this one a go next.
