Default Super Fast S-23

Pitched the yeast in my first lager last Sunday. I used s-23, but unfortunately did not do my reading on dry lager yeast before buying it (and no brewshop nearyby), so I only had one packet for a 1.052 Vienna lager. It fermented at mid 50s, which sounded like the optimum temp for this particular yeast (I could have done low-mid 40s, but heard some bad things). Anyway, it stopped bubbling a couple of days ago, only 3 days in. So today, after no action for a couple of days, I took my first reading. 1.010!!! I assume this is done, and doubt it's going any lower.

Has anyone else had this yeast power through something that quickly?
I'm up in the air whether or not to lager this very long...I'd really like to get drinkin it!

I have used the S-23 two times. Fermented at 53-55f, both times primary fermentation was done in 4-5 days. Both beers turned out good. Stay with your plan, you will be fine.

It's all bottled up now and carbing away. I snuck one early though for a (flat) taste, and it was awesome! I can't wait to get some time and carbonation in it. I plan to stick a bunch in the back of my fridge to "lager" in the bottle for a month or so once they've had time to carbonate in the bottle. Should be really good though. I think it's probably one of the most impressive beers I've made (in a more subtle way than usual).

Good luck keeping your hands off those brews that will be calling you from the fridge!
