I picked this one up today on a semi-whim, to use for an ESB. I did a search, and info is sparse at best, probably owing to the platinum/seasonal status. For those that have used it, what's the verdict?

i used it in a 1.060 brown ale and it fermented fast, in like one week it went all the way down to 1.004. I was impressed and the beer was great.

93% attenuation, are you sure? That's quite literally too good for my application. What were your mash temps?

I'm making 9 identical British Strong Ales. The first five are complete using WLP006, WLP022, WLP025, WLP026 and WLP030. The last four to be made are WLP033, WLP037 and WLP011. Of the first five, the WLP022 (@8.1%) has made an awesome beer. It is competition quality without even attempting to brew for competition.
