Default Cider yeast for beer ???

Hello,

I found a partial mash recipe that calls for Wyeast 3766 Cider yeast.

Is it ok to use cider yeast to ferment beer ? Will that make a big difference in the fermentation process or the final taste ?

Thanks !

Haven't seen that. I would expect poor attenuation, but maybe that's what the recipe calls for.

The recipe's a Corona Clone. Does it make more sense or not at all ?

Here's the recipe:

.50 lbs. Crystal Malt 20L
3 lbs. Dry Light Extract
2 lbs. Rice Flaked
1 lbs. Corn Sugar
2 oz. Saaz boiled 60 min.
1 oz Saaz boiled 15 min.
2 tsp irish moss (not included in calculations)
Yeast : WYeast 3766 Cider
