I ended up pitching it. I waited until the abosolute last minute. We will see. I think my thermometer temp was off so I may have actually pitched it at the right temp, but to be honest I have no idea. I can't get any of my thermometers to line up. lol If my tilt is right, it was pitched at 67 which I am guessing isn't going to make the beer taste great. My fermometer read a lot lower so I was thinking after stirring it would have been somewhere in the middle. But given the thermometer issues I don't know. I am not super familiar with it so I guess I will learn why people don't ferment it at higher temps lol I did just buy a pack for a rice lager but your comments make me think I should use 34/70eek, just saw this - what did you do? how's it going?
i'm not a big fan of S-23 - the one time i used it for a WF, it took the longest to "clean up" as compared to other lager yeasts. after 6 months of lagering it was quite nice, but the others were drinkable within a few weeks.
We only have another month of cooler temps so hopefully it will clean up enough to drink
