Posted in thread: Substitute ale for lager yeast on 03-20-2013 at 08:05 PM
Is there a good substitute for a lager yeast. Looking to sub out White Labs American Pilsner
Lager (WLP840) yeast. Just not sure if I can get temps for fermentation down enough to use

Hi guys, I am looking to brew this soon and was wondering what the cider yeast will bring to

Ya, I think I am getting it mixed up. I'm thinking that the IBU'S are how hoppy the beer is.
