So, I was preparing yeast starters for a hefe weizen and a kolsch in identical beakers -- and got distracted by my kids in the end as I pitched Wyeast packets into the beakers -- and put them down near each other before I labeled the beakers.
So, when I got back to the beakers, I was about 90% sure I knew which yeast was in each beaker, but not 100%. Anyone know a way to determine which yeast is which? Not sure if they'll each give off any different smells at this stage to tell them apart. FYI, I had to sub in an American Wheat yeast for the kolsch and I used a bavarian wheat yeast for the hefe.
I totally feel dumb sending this in, but hey. It's not quite as easy to do brew things with kids around!
