Ken you need this for those hot summer months.  It is amazing the amount of yeast coming out that ferment so well at high temps.  

 

"OSLO can comfortably produce beautifully clean, lager-like beers at temperatures as high as 98F (37C) without noticeable off flavors. At the high end of fermentation temperature, beers can finish attenuating in as little as three days! This culture’s versatility and neutral flavor profile allows you to effortlessly produce most beer styles."

Thanks Drez.  I remember people liking Pacman which White Labs called "San Diego Super Yeast" or some such thing.  WLP090.  It was supposed to be very clean and 1056-like.  I used it and did not care for the beers I made with it.  Estery, phenolic, complex, mildly Belgian-like.  Of course it could have been mishandled on my part.  This Oslo is giving me similar nightmares.  It says "beautifully clean" but is it really?  Have you used it yet?

It is brand new and just came out.  I would like to give it a try latter this spring/summer and if I do I will report back.  So many new yeast and so little brewing time.

I guess my gut reaction is that there are so many great lager yeasts and I even seem to find "even mo bettah" lager strains which make my current favorite lager strain my second-favorite lager strain.  :lol:  Did that make sense?  So I don't seem to see a shortage of great lager yeast strains.  That said, I do like to try new lager yeasts but they're typically German and Czech in origin.  I do agree with Drez... so many new yeasts (and ingredients in general), so little time to brew.

WLP090 is Pacman?  From your description it sure doesn't sound like it.  Pacman is very clean.

Maybe I bought Pacman (from Wyeast) and WLP090 San Diego Super Yeast at the same time because many brewers said they were great and neutral.  My point is that I sometimes have another brewer tell me to use a certain yeast and I describe my aversion to Belgian-like, complex, barnyard, horse-blanket, vomit-like, Brett-character yeast strains and they say YOU'LL LOVE THIS ONE! and then I brew with it and wince on the first whiff of it.  I guess I have enough lager strains to play with... Bayern, 2124, 2782, 2278, 2308, 940, etc.

Man, I've been brewing for over 10 years now but what's up with yeasts now being able to ferment super hot while still tasting good!? 

 

I mean, I'm happy about it, but where have they been!?

Probably has something to do with preparing to brew beer while dealing with global warming.  :D

I was surprised to hear that as well. Doesn’t seem like it to me. But I’ve used SDSY a bunch and it hasn’t come out as Ken described

I have never found 090 to be anywhere near neutral.  But yeah, once you have your stable of yeasts, I find that there's little need to go farther for most of the things I want to brew.

One of the authors of Experimental Brewing doesn't want to experiment with yeast?

I made a simple lager with Mangrove Jacks M54 yeast a month or so ago and it tastes similar to this description you posted. It is a lager yeast that is supposed to ferment at higher temps. It's a drinkable beer, just not what I was hoping for.

I have not had good luck with Mangrove Jacks  yeast.  If I remember correct they are slow and you really need double the amount of yeast.

Same here.  It comes from Bevie, the parent company of Grainfather.  Despite the fact that the people there are friends, I will not use MJ yeast.
