I just used this strain for the first time. I made a double decoction Vienna with it. I made a 1 gallon starter about 4 days before brewday. I left it at 50F/10C. It was going real slow and brewday was approaching. So I moved it to 58F room. It really got going. The next day I brewed and and pitched it all at 55F/13C and put back into the 50F/10C room. It really took off and is very happy at this temp. It has a strong bready smell. I have a good feeling with this beer. From what I have read it leaves a more malty and less sweet beer. That is why I tried it. Taste test will not be for a couple of months though.
If this finishes by the wknd I will transfer to secondary and use the yeast for an Marzen and Boh pils. My room will only stay at 50F until mid March so I gotta take advantage of it now.
