The Californian Common / Steam Beer yeast is fantastic.

I was thinking of using that one.

I did like the kolsch yeast when I used it, not felt the need to revisit the real ale and us pale again though.
Planned: Green Hop ale
Fermenting: Nothing
Bottled: Home grown Halletau Mittelfruh golden ale, centennial golden ale, Brown Kolsch, Strong Burton with Brett C

I've enjoyed this with several brews too, one of their best original series yeasts.

Any updates on their other newer Beirm yeasts would be really useful, especially how they compare with the dried yeasts they seem to aim to compete with!

From their 'standard' range, I highly rate the Kolsch and California Common yeasts, they really are excellent.

I have had a good experience with the hog norsk yeast at 22° brewing a sort of strong bitter user upper with lots of EKG. Quite a clean yeast at this temp.

I have a dark mild conditioning at the moment using the Celtic yeast, I'll report back in that one when it's ready, but looks good so far.

I didn't get on with the real ale and us pale yeasts, didn't like the taste I think they imparted, but I seem to be in the minority there so don't read to much into that (I don't like S04 for the same reason, for instance, and that's usually well regarded) but they both performed OK.
