Wyeast 2633-Oktoberfest Blend
« on: February 15, 2012, 12:56:44 PM »
Anybody have any experience with this yeast? Worth giving a shot. If its anything like the Oktoberfest lager yeast(WLP820) I wont touch it with a 10 foot poll.  I like the Bock or Hella Bock yeast generally for my oktoberfests  but am always looking to try new things.

Ordered a pack of this.  Gona brew and Oktoberfest toward the end of March and split the batch between WY2633 and my usual Hella Bock yeast strain I use.

Ill report back with results!

won second best of show twice in two local competitions (after I had considered the beer past its peak, too), one of which was an Oktoberfest only competition.  I consider the yeast blend the secret ingredient.

Well, not so secret anymore.
You wouldn't believe the things I've seen...

Great! Look forward to comparing it directly with Hella Bock.

I used it in an Octoberfest last year and was very happy with the results.
