I've only used the German Ale/Klsch(WLP029) once and I got an attenuation of 85%.
The yeast specs are for an attenuation of 72-78%

Have any of you guys used this yeast much, and is 85% common or likely to be a one-off ?

TIA,
Doc

Cheers Oz.
Will calc the recipe on 80% then I think.
Makes it a bit of a guess though when you are trying to produce a beer of specific parameters.

Just racked the Kolsch and it is already at 79.17% attenuation.
Will mention it to White Labs when I visit them in July.

Beers,
Doc
