I know there's been other threads about this yeast, but I thought it deserved another.
I've been curious about this yeast since it came out and finally had the chance to use it. I have half a verdict on it. I brewed a German Pils with this yeast 2 weeks ago. I racked to secondary today and tasted the beer. It's AWESOME! It tastes exactly like WLP830 that I've tasted in similar beers at racking-to-secondary time... clean malt and hop bitterness with no fruitiness or other off flavors.
The final verdict is still out until I get it in the glass, but so far my lager starter days are over. I've read other homebrewer reviews on this about some fruitiness, etc., but I'm beginning to believe it might not be the yeast. Good temp. control and pitch rate is essential. I started fermentation on this lager at 50°F and kept it there. I pitched 2 rehydrated packs per 5 gallons.
So far I'm VERY happy with it. Now if they could only make WLP023 in a dry strain and I'd be set.
