I bought two packages a month or so ago that I am going to use in a Munich Helles tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing how it works.

What was the production date? IIRC it's been awhile since Wyeast was making this. I really hope you got enough yeast cells pitched.

To be honest with you I didn't look at the manufacture date. Looking back, I ordered them 2-3 months ago. I did make a 1.5 l starter with both packs. I'll just have to wait and see how it goes. I do have wl 830 just in case.

Kind of disappointed with the yeast. Used recommended pitching rate, and got down to 1.013 from 1.05. Really quite buttery in smell and taste. Did a d rest for a full three days as well. Hopefully, more lagering will do the trick. But, I'm not holding my breath.....

Have you tried the finished product yet? This yeast gave me a 1.1013 beer from 1.050 as well, and I was curious if the gravity drops during lagering, or if the yeast cleans up the beer flavors any more. Mine still has another couple of weeks of lagering before it's ready to try.

I ended up taking it off of gas and pitching some WL 830. It went down anther 5 gravity points and the butter taste is gone. Going to let it lager and clear for another couple of months. But I think the batch will is saved.
