Just about to place an order on get'er brewed and was considering getting a few packets of M76. Never tred it before. Any recommendations?

If so what's the best temperature to go with and do you need to pitch two packets at low temps?

I used it for brewing bocks. It is a nice yeast. I have always used a temperature between 10° and 12° C for fermentation. After fermentation, I put it for a couple of days at room temperature to get rid of diacetyl. I also lagered them for a couple of weeks in a cold environment to make sure that the yeast is really dropped out. I used a whole sachet for 8l, so that would probably work out to two sachets for 20 litre somethings.

Hi
I’ve not used the M76 but I’ve used the m84 a couple of times and it worked well, i tend to add 2x packets as I’m normally fermenting 20-25 litres.
lately I’ve started using the M54 Californian lager, I can’t taste any difference !!
All the Mangrove jacks yeasts seem to work quite predictably.

Sounds nice. I was thinking of brewing a bock. I'll give it a try then. Cheers!

Yeah I've been using M54 quite a lot recently too. In a steam beer first off, then warm fermented lagers and pale ales. It's just a nice clean, reliable yeast. Might give the M84 a go too.

General thinking is that M76 is either Diamond Lager or 34/70, so it should be fairly forgiving of being fermented at closer to ale temperatures.

See this for how 34/70 responds to higher temperatures.

I used two packs of M76 for a Munich Dunkel a couple of years ago, the first pitched at 20degC, the second at 12degC 24 hours later.

It then spent 17 days at 12degC, then 2 days at 20 degC for a diacetyl rest then 4 days at 1degC.

My one and only lager and it was superb
