Yeast can't read.

Heh. I recently used this strain, it took nearly 3 days for my starter to wake up! Better get accustomed to twiddling your thumbs and RDWHAHB-ing.

I used this on a dubbel I brewed in early January. Maybe I'm crazy, but my beer seems like it's still cloudy with yeast and not just chill haze. I'm drinking it anyway. Still tastes good, just more yeasty than I expected.

I just bottled a Belgian-ish beer I used this yeast on. Yeah, it took a little while, and I recall the smack pack didn't fully inflate, but I only smacked it about 6 hours before pitching. The beer wound up attenuating much more than expected - I was expcting it to finish at 1.018, but it finished at 1.007 (OG:1.074).

I'd get a pair of headphones, put them on the carboy and play some disco myself.

i got frusterated and backhanded the plastic fermenting vessel, after the initial few bubbles from pressure i created with my bitch-slap technique, were now looking at a bubble per minute. damn leaky plastic fermenter knows whos boss now.
