Grrrr.... You know that 1.013? Yeah, that was it, it literally went no lower... All it's done since is to clean up a bit more... So nope, I am not impressed with the Saison De Lille at all. Not going to waste MJ yeast though, beer tastes good as is so it's getting bottled soon.

Everybody who has tasted a sample of the beer has really liked it though, even though it's warm and flat! So will 100% be making the recipe up again, might become my go to brew, especially in the summer months. Just not with CML's uninspiring Saison De Lazy yeast....

Just a quick report on the cml yeasts that I've used so far:

Kolsch: I used this to ferment a Wilkos cerveza kit. Fermented well but had a slight medicinal smell at bottling. I used Kohatu as a dry hop which didn't work well with the kit. However this is crystal clear and the medicinal smell has conditioned out.

US pale: Used this in an out of date Wilkos golden ale kit dry hopped with 100g of Azacca. Been bottled for 2 weeks. Fermented well but takes an age to clear in the bottle and hasn't packed solid yet. Pours cloudy but tastes clean with fruity hops. I think this will be good in a month or so if it packs at the bottom of the bottle.

Belgian: Used half a pack in a Brewferm Christmas ale. Been fermenting at low temps for 10 days as heating only on in evenings and has gone from 1.056 to 1.014. Crystal clear in the fv. Strong phenol smell and taste from a couple of days ago has reduced a lot. I will bottle this to open next Christmas at the earliest but tastes promising.

My us pales have all cleared within 4-5 days in the bottle and pour clear too.

Hopefully it's just the dry hop and only 2 weeks in the bottle that are affecting it.

And mine. In fact, CML yeasts consistently clear faster than any other I've used.

Pretty sure it's the kit. I used the US Pale yeast for the same kit, dry hopped with Falconer's Flight, Citra and Amarillo. Bottled in October and still pours with a haze. Tastes amazing though, so who cares? I also used the US Pale yeast in a mosaic SMSH and it was bright going into the bottles, no haze at all just lovely gold/amber coloured beer.

Oh, and finally used the Kirstallweizen yeast for a wheat beer. Not as insanely vigorous as their real ale yeast, but on a par with other yeasts I've used so far. Pitched on 4/12 it looks like it's nearly done, bubbling slowed right down. Proof of the pudding though will come when it's properly finished and I check the FG.

I've found the CML real ale yeast really vigorous, fermenting quickly even in a garage where the brew temp at one point dropped down to 17 degrees for a bit. Its cleared in the barrel in 2 weeks, but initially has a really strong, almost sour, yeast taste going on. This has now almost totally abated, so quite impressed. Hides the hops a bit, but does allow the malt to shine through. Unfortunately, the brew I've used it on is a bit bland and *meh*, but that's a different story.

I agree about the sharp taste! My brews still have it but hopefully it will disappear. Very homebrew twang-like at the minute

Mozza are you doing kits or ag or extract? None of my ag brews with CML have had any weird taste...
