Very surprised!!
First time using this yeast,

and I'm very surprised to see it finish @ 1.005,
That's 89% attenuation.
This my just be my new lager house strain.

This is a great yeast, not only for Mexican lagers. I use it for many style lagers. It ferments clean, crisp and clears nice and bright in a short time. I like how you can really drop the temp and it still works. I fermented a pilsner at 46 degrees for 3 weeks. Absolutely no esters or off-flavors. This is my go to yeast for Schwartzbier also, allows for depth of color and is still light and dry, think dark pilsner.

Fantastic Results
Used 1 pack of this yeast with a 3L starter and pitched to a 1.055 OG Oktoberfest @ 50F after aerating 1 hour w/ an aquarium pump. Slow to start and stalled at 1.025 but after rousing yeast, and raising fermentation temp to about 65F it continued to ferment down to 1.014 for about 75% apparent attenuation. I was worried this beer would not turn out well but in fact it is literally the best beer I have ever made. Super clean, crisp and clear with a slightly dry finish. Seems to accentuate malt. Definitely try this yeast!

Really nice!
I've brewed 2 Vienna and Oktoberfest lagers with this yeast and had fantastic results. It really accentuates the malty flavors and has a clean crisp finish. Overall very high ratings on this yeast!

I saw this yeast touted by Chris White. I used it in an IPL that came out great.
