I am created a “house yeast”, and this is part of it (finally making more after about 20 batches).

Exactly like the description
With two weeks in a Carboy and two in a keg, it still has a little chill haze. Light American lager is not my favorite by far but it’s what I was trying to make. The crisp and light taste with low body fermented between 70 and 80 degrees F. even with a 6% abv beer.

Arrived as promised
Yeast arrived as promised, hope to up date my review once I have time to try it.
I think Covid created the delivery to be delayed, item arrived warmer than expected with ice pack. Hope it did not effect the yeast.

A fine, neutral, fast yeast!
I bought this yeast after having used the strain in several previous brews. I used it in an American Strong Ale to let the hop and grain flavors shine through, and I combined it with some Belle Saison to add a Belgian twang. 10 days, grain to glass, and it worked admirably.

Make a lager without the traditional lager pain
Trying Lutra for the first time, making a Marzen lager. Wow! Fermented at 80F and was done after several days! It's kegged and will condition for a few weeks. Taste test at kegging: No off flavors, seems to be real clean. Can't wait for the first pour.

Fermented at 90 and was finished after 4 days. Very neutral flavor that lets hops and grain shine. Kinda has a bottom fermenting profile but still not the same.

Very impressive strain
This stuff is incredible. Brewed MoreBeer’s Hop Blonde using this strain. Went grain to glass in 14 days including 7 days in secondary. Could have been fewer but didn’t have an empty keg to put it in.
Brewed on 12/30/20 OG 1.053. By 1/1/21 reached 1.009.
Will definitely use this in the future.

Jury is very much out
I used this in a 5.5 gallon batch of Vienna Lager. OG was 1.052. Wort was oxygenated and had Wyeast nutrient in it. Fermentation started pretty quickly (within several hours) and continued vigorously for the better part of two days. Once all sign of activity in the air lock ceased, I waited a day and then took a gravity reading. 1.017. Huh? That's an attenuation of only 67%. Waited a full day and tried again. 1.017. Both OG and FG readings were taken on a Milwaukee MA871 refractometer. Conversion was done on Brewfather software. The tongue agrees with the refractometer; this beer is under-attenuated. Quite clean, no esters to speak of and the Lutra flocculated nicely, leaving a very clean, pretty beer. So why did a yeast that should attenuate on average 78.5% stop at 67% ? No idea. The wort was oxygenated and fed nutrients the same as every other brew I do, none of which have had attenuation issues to this degree. I really like the characteristics of this yeast and will try it again, hoping for better attenuation. As for now, though, I can only give it a rating of "meh."

Extremely fast, extremely clean. Next-level type yeast.
A blonde ale at 1.050 was down to 1.010 in like 20 hours. Not only that but it was almost completely clear in the same amount of time. What a strain! Will use this many more times!
