Never used it personally, but have not liked any beer that I tasted that used S-23. It gives you a big passion fruit flavor. I've heard people having better luck with using S-34/70

Bump. So, did you end up using it, and if so, what did you think of the results?

Really, the lager yeast? Did you ferment in the typical cold range? Perhaps you're thinking of the S-33 ale strain?

Me too, it seemed a perfectly neutral German lager strain to me. Urban Chestnut recommends using it to clone their Zwickel, which is delicious, but certainly not tropical-fruity.

Yes, is that a problem? Neither S-33 nor S-23 ceased to exist, so the information could still be useful to homebrewers, right?

I used this yeast earlier this year in a Helles. I will never use it again. It made a big fruity Helles. Fortunately my neighbors liked it.
