Anyone tried this ale yeast. I have some at home and am wondering what it would suit?

Hmmm. Never heard of it before and I can't find any information on it out on the interwebs. Must be new.

Make sure to let us know how it performs.

I have seen it but never used it. I presume its aimed to compete with dry English yeast a its described as a Universal top-fermenting beer yeast?

Here are its specs:

Universal top-fermenting beer yeast. Let it rehydrate in a glass of lukewarm water (25°C) for about 10 minutes and add directly to the wort.
Flocculation: medium/high.
Final gravity: low.
Fermentation temperature: 18 - 25°C.
Dosage depends on the original gravity:
1.050: 5 g /10 l.
1.080: 8 g /10 l.

Primary: Black IPA
Keg:Summit IPA, White IPA (US05), Cider, Citrus Saison,

I used this two years ago in a small batch of high-gravity stout. After five days nothing happened so I re-pitched with a different yeast. Wouldn't trust it again.
