Wyeast 2633 is a sulfur bomb that was still apparent after 1 month of lagering. After almost 3 months it was all gone and very tasty. My mother, aka BMC and the SWMBO, aka Sangria both liked it. Out of all of my beers it is the first lower hopped pilsner based beer they liked. I'm going to try and squeeze in a double batch in early April for a late June party.
