I have a blond ale that is just finishing up in primary and I'm about to rack it. I'd like to simply pour the wort for my next beer onto the yeast cake from the blond.
Any suggestions for types/recipes?
I'd like something that:
will be ready quickly (I'm getting a bit of a late start for a camping trip)
will be a good warm weather session beer
will do well force carbonated
Your suggestions will be most appreciated (and rewarded with beer.)
I'd go for a wheat beer.
oh, and I forgot to mention that I'm not that fond of wheat beers or Hefs.
Well, how about :Noble Trappist Ale w/ Safbrew T-58 dry yeast :: Midwest Supplies Homebrewing and Winemaking Supplies
Seems it would fit the yeast well.....
Sounds interesting...I was also thinking about brewing a mild.
Any reason why putting a mild over the yeast cake from a Blond would be a problem?
Well, my thoughts are that it would change the profile a bit, but I do not believe that it would be a bad thing...
I'd prolly go for it!
Wouldn't that be true of anything I brew on the cake other than another blond?
You are missing one critical piece of information. What type of yeast is under that blonde that you brewed?
California Ale Yeast.
How about a cream ale or the like? Do you have the ability to mash? If so, Cream of 3 Crops would be a good one to do, fits the yeast cake, wouldn't take "that" long to ferment, and should like force carbed.
