Default Stepping up wild cider yeast for a beer

Well my friend and I took a huge leap of faith with last years cider supply and fermented a wild batch. Midwest and Northern were out of english cider strain. So we decided to say screw it; they never used to inoculate in the old times. Considering it was 180 gallons worth of cider the risk paid off. Have a good supply of cider for the year.

Anyway....
Now that it is below zero and the garage brewery is at a stand still, I decided to do a step up culture from the bottled cider and eventually make a beer. I do know that there are other organisms in the cider other than yeast but this is an experiment.

Made the first step up today. Depending on taste results of DME through the process will further my options.

Hopefully everything goes great and I will post further results.

Default Wild Cider yeast update

My step up is currently at 500ml. the yeast is wispy if that is a word but settles moderately fast. I don't have a stir plate yet and by swishing it around most of the yeast settles within the hour. it doesn't clump up at all like most yeast that i have dealt with.

I imagine there is more than one strain of yeast battling for a job. so the joining of friends is limited.

Off of 500ml i can't get a true smell of the co2 released. a couple of more 500ml to build the army and i will be going for a 3/4 gallon.

after that depending how the DME liquid "beer" tastes i will proceed to a full batch of Blonde Ale








[beer"
