1.008 isn't too bad. It may have gone a bit further but depends on your culture. I used some
D90 in a saison and felt like the caramel/dark fruit flavor clashed with the saison esters. I
could see it ...

I got my 585 trial batch going. That stuff seems to have some decent floccing ability. I had to

I just brewed a pilsner urquell clone using that yeast. Started at 55F for a week then let it
