I've been reading up on possible lager yeast strains to try and find one that operates fairly well at higher temperatures around 62 degrees. Has anyone used this strain before at this upper end of the temperature spectrum? The manufacturer says it will work up to 75 degrees, but I'm wondering if anyone has had any ill experiences using it in the upper range. Thanks guys!

I use S-23 for my California Common (Steam Beer) recipes and ferment it around 60-62. It comes out very clean.
