"Ferments quickly ..."

Ferments quickly, settles very quickly. Attenuation leaves a bit to be desired. Usually doesn't finish within the "style" parameters even with sugar. Doing a four hour mash at 146-148 with a 5% sugar of the total grist I was able to ferment the beer from a 1.062 to 1.008 in five days doing a starter and dissolving oxygen into the wort before pitching. Ferments vigorously and will get up into the 70s even with an ambient temperature in the low, low 60's.
" ... less than three days"

Pitched 600 ml starter into 3 gal. of wort. This yeast was a fast starter and finisher, taking a 1.060 OG down to 1.013 - which is perfect for the style - in less than 3 days.
"I can't wait for the finished products"

Put together a brown in this style. Since this is not the norm for my brew house, I was surprised to see the beer drop in the primary from an OG of 1.068 to a FG of 1.012 in 5 days at 73 degrees. Beer is in the secondary to allow the yeast to floc out. The aroma at this step is amazing with no noticeable esters, malt is forward but not cloyingly so. I can't wait for the finished product. This yeast's performance was excellent and true to the description.
