I'm looking for a very clean yeast the ferments well at low ale, high lager temps.

I ultimately want a yeast the has no chance of producing any significant amount of esters that lead to off flavors (such as bananas). Something that works even if my A/C breaks and I'm up to 70 degrees or so

Whats my best yeast/technique to use?

Thanks

Pacman fits the description...available from Wyeast.

WLP 872, Cry Havoc would also fit the bill. It ferments clean, works at low ale or lager temperatures, and makes a tasty IPA, as well as good lagers.

S-05 would fit the bill, but may flocculate out at real (55F) lager temperatures. At 60F, it works fine.

I don't know (yet) about pacman, but I have a smack-pack of it in the fridge, just waiting to see how it does.
