2042 Danish Lager Yeast. Rich, Dortmund-style, crisp, dry finish. Soft profile accentuates hop characteristics. Flocculation - low; apparent attenuation 73-77%. (46-56 F, 8-13 C)

Anyone ever use this one? Any tips would be lovely. Tanks.........

I had great results with this yeast the one time I've used it. I made a CAP with it that scored in the mid-40s each of the three times it was judged, and won best of show in an inter-club competition. I'd say the Wyeast description is a good one -- especially "accentuates hop characteristics" and "crisp". I'll definitely use this yeast again.

Definitely a very good yeast, IMO...just like they say, clean and crisp.
LIfe begins at 60...1.060, that is.

I've used this yeast on occasion when it could be found. It made one of the best Dortmunder Exports that I've ever made. I used #2206 this year, but I doubt that it'll turn out as nice.
