i don't know whats going on with my brewing at the moment but I've just pitched a smack pack of 1214... (I'm starting to wonder why I'm persisting with this yeast) for the above recipe I posted. no activity after 8 hours, it seems the comments that this yeast is slow.

Quick question for you Sock, I know your into belgian beers. Can I ask what yeast is your go to or "house yeast" for these types of beer.

Other thing is whats T-58 Like for belgian beers, what I've read suggests that its a saison strain?

Yeah I'm not a massive fan of 1214. Though i have been thinking about giving it another try

My go to belgian strain is Whitelabs 530. Can remember the wyeast equivilant. Its the westmalle strain

T-58 is pretty rubbish in my experience. If you really want to use dry yeast youd be better off trying yeast

I might have to use that one next time. What's your experience with 1214??

It not a bad yeast. It attenuated well and results in a beer with a lot of character. It doesn't flocculate particularly well though so takes a long time to clear.

I haven't used it for a long time, so perhaps my increased experience will yield different results

I picked up a small oak barrel recently. Its currently sitting with water to swell and become water proof. So, I'm thinking i'll have to put some hardy beers through it to get most of the excessive oak flavour out.

So, will probably be making a russian imperial stout this weekend. Either that or a belgian dark strong

I intend to use it for sour beers eventually.

I am very much obsessed with sour beer at the moment.

I currently have: 1 corny with a brett saison, 2 fermenters with flanders brown, one with flanders red, two with gose and one with my attempt at a quick flanders.

the quick flanders is shaping up preeeety well actually. surprisingly so. I pitched lacto and brett L. Its nicely tart and very funky. Only been going for a week. I intend to give it about 6 weeks. I look forward to seeing how it ends up

Just finished brewing what I posted above certainly got rid of a few hops :-). This is my last brew for awhile as ACC have been in touch and they're cutting me open in a couple of weeks.

Went well missed final volume by about 1.5 litre due to turn and beat OG because of it. Nevermind. Quite looking forward to this. If only I could get hold of an actual beer to try?

Sex beer from Palmy:
"The beer would have various aphrodisiacs added, including figs, cacao nibs, honey, oysters and maca root powder - all ingredients said to improve what Mr Takagi calls "night-time exercise".
