VERY different than Notty, pretty different than US 05. Much cleaner than Notty, cleaner than 05, better mouthfeel than either and I'd say maybe a bit more attenuative.

Actually, I just order some Pacman & Belgian Schalde (sp) earlier this week. I was thinking along the lines of brewing the same Belgian recipe w/ both yeasts and comparing the results.

Pacman does flocculate amazingly well, you still need to ferment LOW. I have a year old barley wine fermented by Pacman that sat at 63F for three weeks (roused at week two) that fermented pretty damn low (beersmith recipe on the other computer). I usually ramp up the temperature the last few days to help the yeast clean up the beer. Your pitching rate will be the real factor to your 1.115 ale. Pitch big and watch the yeast make your beer.

Yeah, I planned on making a 1.8 liter stirred starter with 2 smack packs.
when you say "roused at week two" do you mean you raised the temperature? or did you allow the temperature to rise as you saw activity in the fermenter decrease?

You should consider WLP007. It is very alcohol tolerant, attenuates to 80%, flocculates well and, does give a clean flavor...not too Londoney

I use it in all of my ales, it's really great! Just pitch a crap load of yeast, and it will finish VERY fast and with few yeast flavors. just try it

Anyone else have any thoughts on this?
