I will be brewing this weekend for my brother's October wedding. I will be using the Mangrove Jack's Workhorse yeast which is supposed to be lager like up to 68. I debated using a cal common yeast but could not get one in time.

Brewed this 2 weeks ago. BIAB. Had to add a lot of top off water. Way more boil off than i'm used to. So, I figured I'd screwed it up. Tasted it today from fermentor, pretty darn good! Cant wait until its bottles and done!

Do you think Wyeast 1056 would work in this beer or would it turn out too fruity?

I'm sure when I made this last year, I did 21 days primary then into Keg. I was best at about 3-4 weeks in Keg, but still good right away.
I used the PacMan yeast last year, but planning on using Cali Lager this year.

Thanks, I try to avoid doing a secondary if I can.

I think I'm going to do three gallons of this as a test run as soon as the ambient temps in my basement go below 70. That might be a while so I might be doing the swamp cooler....
