WYeast 2112 California Lager™

This strain is particularly well suited for retaining lager characteristics at ale temperatures while producing malty, brilliantly clear beers. I though this yeast would be perfect for this Baltic Porter.

Fermention was 10 days @ 60 Degrees. Secondary was 4 days @ 68. Kegged and kept Cold (42 degrees).
