I.m not sure they use Pac man for every beer...I don't recall if they use it for hefes, or lagers at all, It's been awhile since I hit the site...what I do know is that the brewmaster ferments Pacman at different temps for different beers...He ferments from 60 to 70 degrees...IIRC dead guy he does right at 60...

Different temps will produce different qualities and different ester profiles in the beer.

yeah the temperatures I have a good amount of experience with. I did a fridge-fermenter mod a while back. It seems strange to use one strain for all your brews...is this a typical thing for most commercial breweries?

Yup. Fermentation temps can be manipulated to get certain characteristics from the house strain.
