Different yeast with clone
 
Ok So im still very new and learning alot from these boards).
I ordered a 90 minute DFH kit from Austin.
I was talking to friend who has done a few brews. He suggested
trying a diffent yeast strain to give it a different flavor(Wyeast 1388)
What do you guys think?

Thanks
Sean

What do I think? I think that you will have a beer that tastes slightly different than the recipe intended.

Why bother? Do you dislike DFH 90 min? If yes, go for it. If no, who cares? Anyone can add a random yeast to a recipe and come out with something different than was intended. Does it make it a good idea? Maybe, maybe not.

Im not one to leave well enough alone. I always want to do things just alittle different and not follow the leader. Besides I can drive right down to the brewery and buy as many cases as I want(only a few miles away).
The kit was ordered for me as a gift.
Really what I was asking for was, a taste/flavor profile.
Ah the heck with it. Ill just try it.

Thinking that this clone kit is going to taste exactly like DFH 90 is a little naive. So why would you change something when you really don't know how it'll turn out as is?

My friend that homebrews on occasion, has brewed it before. I have tried his and it is very good. But we agreed it needs something just alittle different. Maybe more of a ester profile. As I stated im sill very green but listening to his knowledge as well as all the info on this board, im learning fast.
So Im trying to get a general consensus from others who may have brewed this before or something simular, for their input.
I like how changing just one thing can have a completely different outcome and encourge all input.
I have spent the last week looking though old post and searching the internet for info.
We all share a interest in our hobby. If I have overstepped by bounds by asking a question, I appologize.
I try to gather as much info before I proceed.

If you had stated this in your first post, I'm sure you would've gotten more relevant responses.

I hear ya, mate - your goal is a good one, FWIW - Changing it up is what its about. So you are green and cautious - that describes 90 % of folks on here, and would be me only 12 months ago. And heck, ask MORE questions - its how you learn.

Just get used to the fact that when you post a thread, and ask a question, people may have an answer than what is different than the one you WANT to hear. This should be a proverb, if I say so myself. Not that I always heed it :)
