Trying to decide between yeast for a Dos Equis Clone Extract form Austin Homebrew.
I was thinking of using the White Labs WLP940 Mexican Lager instead of the Wyeast 2124 Bohemian Lager Yeast and was wondering if anyone had feedback on experience with the Mexican Lager yeast.
I have the Mexican Lager yeast available from a yeast washing and was considering using the Mexican Lager yeast instead and was wondering how different the taste may be.
Wyeast 2124 Bohemian Lager Yeast
A Carlsberg type yeast and most widely used lager strain in the world. Produces a distinct malty profile with some ester character and a crisp finish. Will ferment in the 45-55°F range for various beer styles. Benefits from diacetyl rest at 58°F (14°C) for 24 hours after fermentation is complete. Also used for pseudo-ale production with fermentations at 75°F, (24°C) which eliminates sulfur production.
White Labs WLP940 Mexican Lager
From Mexico City, this yeast produces clean lager beer, with a crisp finish. Good for Mexican style light lagers, as well as dark lagers.
