Default Eau de Vie Yeast

Anyone use this strain?

Apparently it can stand up to 21% ABV. I'm wondering if this would make a brew too "hot" or if it would be good for a secondary fermentation. Thoughts?

21%?
That's pretty boozy for a straight ferment. If you can get your hands on some, give it a try and tell us how it goes.

I don't know if it will give me the dryness I'm hoping to achieve to cut the sweet of the maple. It might be fun to make a BIIIG cyser with the Eau De Vie.

That should be a fine choice for a cyser.

Give it lots of time in the secondary.
