WLp 833 was my second choice...any grist consideration, chloride to sulfate ratio, or other considerations with this yeast? planning mash at 1.5qt per lb, 154F for 75 minutes.

Edit: According to Kris England's chart it's WLP820.

wyeast 2206 - any issues with burning up the diacetyl ? they even list it as high producer of D.

just curious

2206 is my go to lager yeast because I not only love the malty flavor it gives, but I have never gotten diacetyl from it.  I think it's the most reliable, well behaved lager yeast I've used.

you ferment on the low end of the 46-58F range...46-48F?

Yep.  My aim is to keep it below 50.

erockrph:
I used 2633 on my fest last year and was very happy with the results. I'm still just getting my feet wet in the world of lagers, but I will definitely be going back to 2633 again. I brewed mine using a swamp cooler in the middle of August, but it was still very clean despite a bit of temperature fluctuation.
