When I first used it as an ale yeast (fermented around 68°); I expected an estery mess, but instead I got a good, clean IPA. Color me surprised, but pleasantly so.
It was an experiment, sure, but it was nice to know that I could use 34/70 for ales, especially in a pinch if, for some reason my on-deck ale yeast was no good (contaminated, too old, etc.).
Yeah, 34/70 has become my all around yeast for both ales and lagers. Much cleaner than US05.
