Same here, just can't brew often enough to keep a top-crop going.

I guess I had better have another squint at my fermentation and see how it's doing.
Multi-tasking, easy, drink beer and watch telly.

I had a bottle of lager last night that my mate made and it was fermented with M54 and the hops were Mandarina Bav. It was good but the yeast did feel a bit hybrid, I wondered if it was Nottingham fermented cool til I asked him later. It was more like a lager than an ale though.

I've recently brewed with this just doing a Steam Clone. I was hoping for more of the Anchor Steam California Lager, not the traditional Anchor. It's the one with the red label which is sometime 4 for 6 quid at M and S, not sure of where else you can get it.  I dont really buy beer since I've been brewing...

It was ok for the first couple of weeks by has hugely refined itself after a month. I'm going to brew it again on Saturday but will not touch it for at least a month after going into a corny.

There is something about this yeast though I think that it really needed that month, maybe as no hops to hide behind but I think it's more than that...

Certainly not for everyone but if you like a lager it's a great beer to serve up.  I'd drink hoppy all day but this will be one on tap for hot days and guests...

Anyway, no expert here but I'll be ensuring I have some in stock

so far with my little lager experiment ive found this yeast to behave exactly the same as the diamond lager yeast during fermention...  i suspect that they will be very little between them..

looking forward to doing a side by side comparison
