Not sure about flavour yet but I have cooled it to about 58F and it's making all the normal lager stenches. Their webisite says 46-50 for the temp. I'll keep you informed. It's right next to a fermenter with wyeast 2024 bohemian lager, and while the suphur production is not as high as the bohemian, it's still very evident.

Shouldn't have any trouble ordering liquid yeast this time of year. Summer time can be a little tricky sometimes without optional cool packs. I just avoid buying liquid yeast in July and August because of high temperatures.

THREAD RESURRECTION!

I filtered and kegged my American/IPA Pale Ale last night and decided to sample the beer I used to get my FG reading.

OG was 1.070 and FG was 1.004. Taste was extremely clean and I couldn't taste any off flavors or other strange things. Possible downside here is that it doesn't seem to contribute anything special of its own - focuses the beer on the malt and hops flavors. I think I like it for the recipe I used it for. Of course, it could be that the yeast flavors are just quite subtle and are overwhelmed by the 35 or so IBUs.

I will resurrect again and repost in here around Friday or so when it is carbonated and cold. Maybe even again a few weeks later if it lasts that long to see how it aged.

That's some massive attenuation...

Interesting! Cowain's brew is one that I would really like to sample. Seems I like the brews of about 7% best.
