It works as it should. Not much more that you could expect from a packet of yeast!
The attenuation of this yeast is impressive. Dropped my Saison down to 1.002 FG. I fermented at room temp (74ish) but I’m sure it got closer to 80 durning fermentation. The flavor is great!
This yeast is very forgiving, and will ferment without undesired off-flavors from 59*F to 95*F. I had a mishap with temp controller and it dropped to 40*F after pitching. Let it slowly rise to 59*F and started fermenting...then. Got to 73*F and unplugged Fermwrap. Finished at 1.020, and plugged Fermwrap back in. Got to 81.2*F and unplugged it. Finished out at 1.006 (if not lower)...right on the money for my recipe.
