I'm thinking of brewing a doppelbock with a friend and I'm trying to figure out if I can lager or not. I use the internal temp controller and the highest I can get the temp to go is 46degrees F. Do you think that WY2206 will work at this low temp? I'm still working on trying to get the temp up a bit, but if I can't do you think it'll still work? Thanks

You'll be fine at the low end of the range.
Flocculation: medium-high
Attenuation: 73-77%
Temperature Range: 46-58 F (8-14 C)
Alcohol Tolerance: approximately 9% ABV

Pitch at a lower temperature (like 42F) and let it warm a bit. I can't remember where, but I read this strain likes to go asleep when temp goes down. Let us know how it goes, I plan to use this yeast for the next batch.
