I'd really like to see how the workhorse strain does. It would be SO nice to have a yeast that can handle summer temps and not be a saison.

By "really damn good," do you mean it tastes like a Belgian Tripel?

I've never heard of a beer going that low. Belgian Tripels usually aim for about 80% attenuation, but you got 99%, which I didn't even think was possible with the complex sugars in beer wort... unless you used Beano or something. Tell me more about how you did it!

Mashed low, maybe 149. At least 8 of the points were candi sugar. Left in our hot warehouse for a few weeks after a cool primary fermentation. I guess technically it's more of a strong golden? Some hot alcohol taste but I'm sure it'll mellow out.

I should add that I'm pretty sure this is a Saison strain

I'm going to give a go at their burton union yeast, anybody tried it? I'm looking for a not-too-prominent yeast but with more esters than notty or s-04.

I used the Newcastle strain in an Oatmeal Brown Sunday. It finished fermenting last night. Quite active.

So far I have picked up the Belgian strain, the Workhorse, West Coast, and the Dry English. I will be using the West Coast in a hoppy wheat beer this weekend. I will also be trying the Workhorse in a Vienna/Northern Brewer SMaSH beer that I have always used chico in. I really like seeing more variety in dry yeast.

What kind of temp are you going to ferment the workhorse at?

I made a cream ale on big brew day and used the workhorse. I normally have used the White Labs cream ale blend on this recipe. I fermented at around 64 and it is very clean tasting and dropped clear very quickly. It was a quick worker too, took off within 4 hours after pitching. I had it kegged and was drinking it within twelve days. Probably the best cream ale I've made, and I've made a LOT of cream ales for my wife, including several medal winners. I've used a ton of different yeasts on them, and I think this may be my favorite. Next up is a partigyle Old Ale/English brown using the Burton Union yeast for the Old ale and the Newcastle for the brown ale. We'll see how that goes.

Thanks for the post - I think this is worth a try. The product info shows the Workhorse yeast as producing a lager style when fermented in the 59 - 68F range. Did you think it was clean enough to call it a lager flavor?

(By the way, if you're looking for this info, I got it from a link in the on-line Williams Brewing catalog.)
