Made a Cali Common. The beer fermented clean at a relatively warm lager temperature (58-60deg).

Amazing Yeast
I have twice used this dry yeast to brew a delightfully clean and crisp German pils at... wait for it... 68 degrees ambient. No kidding. In terms of simplicity, ease of use, repeatablity and quality results I don't think there is a better yeast on the market--dry or liquid.

Meads
Been using this for carbonated melomels lately. It does so well on my basement floor. Made a clean crisp cherry mead that was just awesome
Old Faithful
This lager yeast is always one I can depend on to get fermentation done with little error.

Seems a bit slow to start and high gravity finish
I made a 6 quart started and pitched at about 65F. This is a Oktoberfest with a starting gravity of 1.068. Primary fermentation at 57F. Continued 57F in the secondary at about 1.030. Now cold crashed and lagering at 4F. Tastes good and in style but I thought it would finish about 1.018 to 1.020.

Too lazy to make a starter
I use this when I need to get a batch of lager going and don't have time to make a starter. I have found that pitching low at 45 deg X 3 days, then raising to 50 deg and then when the beer is almost at target gravity (another 6-10 days), raise to 60 -65 deg for a diacytl rest gives the best results. I don't usually see a krausen until day 5, but I can see the yeast growing on the side of the carboy so I know it is okay on day 3.

My yeast of choice
I use this yeast in every lager brewed. I mostly brew light German lagers, but have used it in imperial stouts as well. This yeast drops super clear. I am able to gravity filter from conical through a coarse plate filter to keg relatively fast. Pitch at 45 hold at 50 and this yeast is tasty.
