Great yeast for all of the beers I have brewed with it. Propagates nicely. Finishes quickly.
"First Time Using 833"
By: Chris Storey | Date: Dec 21, 2014 | Beer(s) Brewed: Helles
I made a Helles last month for the first time. My lhbs recommended it and they were temporarily out of my usual 940. It was slow to start, but I did pitch it @ 44F. Once it got going it was very steady for 2 weeks. My best beer yet, certainly my best lager. No sulphur or diacetyl at all. I think this will be my house lager strain for now on.

I used this yeast to create my first lager- an ode to Ayinger's no longer available Maibock. The clarity and attenuation were especially impressive along with the mouthfeel and balance. Final gravity was reached just shy of 21 days at 50 degrees. I laggered for 8 weeks at 35 and conditioned for another 2. Very well worth the wait. I can't honestly say that I specifically recall Ayinger's version, but I'm happy enough with mine to come back and review the yeast I used to create it! I would like a slightly more malty presence, perhaps that will emerge if the beer last another several weeks.
