Wyeat 2112
« on: January 28, 2004, 12:58:04 PM »
I have a good slurry of this yeast left. Can anyone recommend it for use in a Bock? I have stacks of Munich malt. Are there any other styles that this yeast lends itself to?

Regards
Mark

I would think you could use it for many American style lagers if you ferment near the low end of the temperature scale.

It would probably be OK in a Bock as well, though I can't say I have tried anything like that.

Cheers!

I use White Labs yeast, but I seem to recall that this is the Wyeast steam yeast, right? I used the WL version #810 San Fran lager to ferment a porter that's a few days out yet from being moved into a keg. It's a big beer--OG of 1.068, and it went all the way down to 1.014--so I definitely think it would work fine with a bock or something like that. Give it a shot--for me, without lagering capabilities, it's as close as I can get.

What do they say... "No guts, no glory" ;D

I will try it in a bock and see what occurs.
Thanks for the replies fellas.

OK, I brewed a very impromptu Bock on Saturday.
3 kgs Dark Munich
2 kgs Light Munich
400 g Crystal Malt (250-300EBC)
200 g Chocolate Malt

54 g Hallertau Plugs (2.9%AA) 60 minute boil

Cali. Lager yeast 2112

The SG was a bit lo for style by 2 points so started at 1062.
I will be interested to see how this yeast affects the maltiness of the Munich in the resultant beer. I will post a follow up soon.

Cheers and bollocks

Mark,
Let me know how your Bock turns out.

I have used this yeast for several years but only in my California Common. The judges liked it as it took a 2nd at the Amador County Fair in 2002.

unclejack, it turned out reasonably well. It is very malty and clean. I think it will continue to improve for a while. I think 2112 is a good yeast for this beer. Good luck with it.

Cheers
Mark
