Lager Yeast
I like to ferment at ambient temperatures in my shop. I brew lagers late fall to mid spring. S-23 has performed well. No starter for the fresh pack. Ferment a moderate gravity wort, then harvest yeast and brew higher gravity beers. Repeat and harvest yeast. I usually do six brews from the initial single pack.

Good yeast
Pros: Individual packages great for home brewer. 

Cons: Same yeast is not available in larger packages. I like this yeast so much, I'd like to buy more. But buying 20+ packets seems inefficient. Packets are soft; specs say they are supposed to be filled with nitrogen and hard. Content seems to be okay though.

Great all-purpose lager yeast, SO cheap.
Pros: I used this for an American dark lager with excellent results. Very forgiving and vigorous lager yeast. Transparent, allowing full flavor of beer to shine through. Unlike the other reviewer, I didn't need a starter solution, it just kicked right in.

Good yeast if properly handled.
Pros: This is a true bottom fermenter.  What they say about it being estery, is only if you're fermenting at too high a temp, or if the wort does not have sufficent nutrients.  A good wort, with nutrients, fermented at 50degC or less will be fine. 

Cons: You absolutely have to rehydrate properly and then make a starter. I recommend a 1 to 1.5 quart starter.
