    I have read that some people think the Coopers European Lager kit comes with a lager yeast.
    I have a packet of it and it looks identical to the ale yeast packet (gold 7g sachet) supplied with the regular Coopers Dark Ale, Lager etc... kits.

    I am wanting to use the yeast as a proper lager yeast and ferment around 13c.
    Has anyone used this yeast at this temperature ?

    Make a starter out of the yeast. You should get some idea of whether it is a true lager yeast. A lot of people on this forum will condemn you if you only pitch 7 grams into your lager! :D
