Ill be adding Wyeast 2352-PC Munich Lager II to the EZ Brew 1.4 release just to keep it up to date with all available products.
Other then that I have no plans for them at the moment.

Still playing with the WY1581 Begian Stout & WY1000 Headwaters Ale

Haven’t seen the description for the Munich II, but I’m considering a Dunkel and Oktoberfest. Greg, what do you think of the Northwoods yeast?

I wonder how this compares with the HellaBock. I just did a Helles and plan on doing an Octoberfest with the HellaBock.

I somehow fail to get excited by WY VSS strains these last few releases.

Anyone have link to the description of these? Can’t see to find one.

I don’t have a link but heres the descriptions.

I love Hellabock. That’s the Ayinger yeast. What brewery do you think the Munich II yeast is from?

A friend of mine made NB’s Prima Pils clone with the Koelsch II and the original Koelsch yeast. He thought the Koelsch II was better.

Get 10 lbs of Koelsch malt, 1 lb of Vienna malt, 2 oz Tettnanger (1 oz @ 60 min, 1 oz @ 0 min) and a good, 2 L starter for that Koelsch II, 3 weeks of fermentation and another 2 -4 of lagering, and you’ll have yourself a swell summer beer right there.

Whoa. White Labs 833 Bock Lager is the Ayinger yeast as well? I might have to remember that when Hellabock goes out of style.

52-62? Use in a steam?

So if there are 2 Munich yeasts, then I would figure that they would be from one of the 6 BIG Brewers out of Munich: Spaten, Paulaner, Hacker-Pschorr, Hofbrau, Lowenbrau or Augustiner. It kind of would be cool if one of those was Augustiner.
