18 hours after pitching, solid activity at 15.5C. Switching to blowoff tube as krausen reaching neck of carboy and steady bubbling in airlock, one of the most satisfying feeling after a brew day. Second only to drinking the results of your labor when you tap the keg.
So, the only references to this yeast strain I could find on forums dealt with slow initial fermentation and a long primary period. Based on what I'm seeing, this strain can kick off a healthy fermentation cycle early on after pitching. Being a lager strain described to perform well into the 60's, I'm hoping that by starting at 60F I get a clean profile from this yeast.
