I use this yeast commercially to make seltzer. It reliably produces a ~5%ABV seltzer product that dries out to ~.995 every time. Give it plenty of nutrient and 10-12 days to ferment. It produces some mild sulphur odor but I have yet to see a yeast that doesnít do that in seltzer. I have also used it successfully for mead/melomel at a homebrew scale.
