Fantastic Results
Used 1 pack of this yeast with a 3L starter and pitched to a 1.055 OG Oktoberfest @ 50F after aerating 1 hour w/ an aquarium pump. Slow to start and stalled at 1.025 but after rousing yeast, and raising fermentation temp to about 65F it continued to ferment down to 1.014 for about 75% apparent attenuation. I was worried this beer would not turn out well but in fact it is literally the best beer I have ever made. Super clean, crisp and clear with a slightly dry finish. Seems to accentuate malt. Definitely try this yeast!

Really nice!
I've brewed 2 Vienna and Oktoberfest lagers with this yeast and had fantastic results. It really accentuates the malty flavors and has a clean crisp finish. Overall very high ratings on this yeast!

Fantastic Yeast
I saw this yeast touted by Chris White. I used it in an IPL that came out great.
