Good info. I have not used the W34/70, will order it in next order and try it with the light lager. last summer I did notice the fruity esters with S23 with this beer but thought it was due to fermenting at too high of a temp, 64F. have only done 4 lagers so far, so trying to get a general idea of the yeast characteristics. thanks
