I'm not sure if I'm getting the Slick or buttery but it is definitely sweet

Would this be the result of brewer error, or was it just a fluke thing?

Sweetness is a recipe design flaw. Diacetyl butter/slickness is a fermentation flaw.

At that temp, that's pretty normal behavior.

I've used this yeast a few times now and its a beast. 2 out of 3 times i lost a gallon due to blow off. It's very fast and drops quickly. I pitched a batch on monday afternoon with it and by tuesday morning @ 66 it was on its way. On thursday night i ramped it up to 70 and its pretty much done. it's currently at .016 from .065
