Interesting. I have found S-05 to attenuate better than any other yeast I have used.Same here.
Usually I get close to 80% with US-05. Nottingham in low 70%.

>>> Step up to 178 degrees. Sparge as necessary.I would not go that high. 170 is good enough.

OTOH, I use S-189 dry lager yeast frequently and I love that stuff. My single experience with
34/70 was also good.Denny, where did you get it from. I'd be willing to give it a try.
