Works fine.

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

Iv used it a couple times, fermented around 14C, tasted fine. Definitely needs a good long lagering to clear up though, not great attenuation, finished quite high for me 1.015-1.020 for beers that ussually finish around 1.010 with notty.

I made a California Common with it; fermented at 61 deg for 3 weeks. One of the best beers I have made.
