Mark, or anyone else, do you have background on the origin of S-189?

I believe that the strain originates from the Hürlimann Brewery.

Yeah, that's what I've found also.

If I ever do a 14% lager I will use this yeast.   ;)

Sounds like an excellent strain for Baltic Porter then

Although I've made some great maibock with it at a lot less than 14%!

Good to hear, I did a 1.070 maibock yesterday that should come out to a little over half that.

34/70 is my go to lager yeast.
I really like it too, but I brewed a maibock today using S-189: a really good yeast if you can find it.

This is to be released by Fermentis in 11.5 g sachets this year...

I'm good with that.
