Thanks Herbie,
I'm familiar with the harvesting process, my question was based more towards the experiences people have had using this yeast. Ferment temps, attenuation,flocculation, styles of beer they have brewed and the flavor profile they got at a given ferment temp.
I see you had good results at lower temps. Did it floc well for you? What were your Sg and Fg?

It's a fantastic strain. I usually ferment at 60, and it will run through almost anything you throw at it. It took my American barleywine from 1.110 to 1.018 in just over 6 days. Left it in primary for a month total, kegged, and then left it in the fridge for a year. One of my best beers ever.

I think I know the answer but I just want to make sure.

I've seen PacMan yeast for sale at multiple places. Anyone have a thought on the Pac-Man yeast compared to the San Diego Super Yeast?

It flocs better than WLP001 but not as good as WLP002. Morebeer has it in and out of stock all the time.

I checked last night, and I think I was getting attenuation in the high 70s. The beer from the testing jar tasted very clean. It floced well. So basically what Wyeast says it will do. My impression is that it will work in any beer where you would normally use Chico. A nice American ale that you want to be highly attenuated and hops focused? Go for it. Southern Brown Ale? Not so much.
