because it has the Vienna I mashed for an hour instead of steeping, this popped the top of my carboys, had to clean the hoses twice and had a 5 inch krausen ring around the top. I let it age in the 36 range in my conditioning kegs for 7 days after a 10 day fermentation, pulled off into a serving keg and taste notes: a very roasted flavor with high alcohol back end, the hops disappeared as expected but balanced the sweetness perfect with this yeast! carbonation can be lowered to keep the bite away, nice smooth sipper on a cold winter night.
I fermented down to 12 so a 7.88 on the alcohol

This is a winner!

notes: use 90 instead of 120 or less 120 for less of a roasted flavor if needed

you will need 2 yeasts for a 5 gallon container so 4 for this batch even with a starter, I made a 2000ml starter over night and put 4 inches of foam on top of each carboy
