Getting ready to brew a maibock soon. Due to timing issues, and kind of being forced into a "I think I'll brew it today" situation, I decided to go with dry yeast. I passed on the S-23 idea, because of bad reviews and not wanting a lot of fruity esters in the brew. I ordered 34/70, but then saw information about S-189, which I'm embarrassed to admit I'd not even heard of before a couple days ago. The reviews were great, but they were also a few years old. I dug around until I found someplace offering 11.5g packages and went ahead and ordered some of it as well, but based on what I'm reading, it seems like the 11.5g packs I'm getting are likely repackaged from a 500g brick. Anyway, the questions are these: Has anyone here used S-189 before? What are your thoughts? How does it compare to 34/70? Any quirks or anomalies I should be aware of with either? As always, thanks for any input!
