Trying my hand at harvesting some Conan from a can of heady topper. Starting a yeast starter w dme and some yeast nutrients, and a can of heady. I'll let you know how it goes!
Starting to form a yeast ring!
I've never harvested before and I've got the better part of a case of heady in my fridge. This makes me want to try.
From high up in the Green mountains!
Take a photo of your fridge. It's a thing of beauty, right?
You either have a good buddy or live in Vermont. I'm heading to Hill Farmstead Saturday
Give me all your hill farmstead and lunch!! I'd demand the heady if I didn't alreayd have it in the fridge.
I harvested my first a few weeks ago and will be kegging my Citra IPA tomorrow that I brewed with the Conan. I also pitched a Belma IPA on the cake which I will be racking on Sunday.
I had great luck harvesting off 2 cans to give me more chances for some healthy yeast. It was my first attempt harvesting myself.
Hey, want to trade some beer. I have never had Heady and am in San Diego. i could trade you some Pliny or Alpine or something else. Really wnat to tr y to harvest the yeast as well as I have read great things. Let me know if you are interested.
Any links on how to harvest?
I understand the concept. Just more of equipment needed and how do you know when you have enough and when do you pitch?
