S-189

I brew nearly every batch of lager with S-34/70 but they were out a few weeks ago so I decided to try this "Swiss" stuff. It's alright. It's marketed as a highly attenuative, highly flocculent strain, with a clean flavor profile. The 34/70 has got it beat in every one of these categories IMHO, especially flocculation. I couldn't get the S-189 to drop out, even after cold-crashing. Then when I moved my fermenter to keg the beer a ton of yeast was thrown back into suspension, and the beer ended up being pretty cloudy and slightly tangy. Maybe a brewer who is willing to be a little more patient with the S-189 can really get it to shine, but I'm a production brewer and I can crank out a batch of clean lager every 14 days with my workhorse yeast strain.
