I use WLP570 like others have stated.

My ferm schedule is something like this:
64 for the first 3-4 days
Slowly ramp to 80 over the course of 10-14 days
Hold at 80 until FG is reached
'Lager' on yeast cake for 3-5 weeks around 38
Bottle condition 4 weeks.

I don't have any problems with fusels using this method and I get a lot of pear esters with a subtle spicy note in the background. Pepper maybe?

I know this topic has been dead a while, but I am hoping you read this. Do you add yeast when you bottle? If so, how , please?

I wouldn’t add any yeast unless it was sitting around for a long time.
