That apparent attenuation (about 70%), is pretty low for that strain (73-77% per Wyeast). I'm surprised you got that FG, given that your sacc. temp was 152F

Yeah, I was expecting more too. However, I accidentally underpitched and I kept the temps on the brink of inactivity. In fact, it may have gotten down to 54F at one point.
