I made a California Common with S-23 and it came out great. I've never used the White Labs yeast, so I can't compare.

In general, I prefer dry yeasts for simplicity. Sometimes I end up sitting on ingredients for weeks before I get a chance to brew.

Yoop, I'm going to try your recipe for my next batch!

i tasted my beer the other night and it was slightly sweet (which i assume is from not being done fermenting) but i'm approaching my two weeks at 62. i'm going to be traveling for the next week. Should i go ahead and put the temp down to 56 or leave it at the higher temp for an additional week.

I've never used a lager yeast before and i don't know when the proper time to drop the temp is, during fermentation or after it's all done. Thanks for the help

Brewed this last night Yoop, thanks for the recipe. Hit all my numbers, and it's working away thanks to my nice sized starter.

Cheers.

Do you need to lager a Cali Common after fermentation is done?

You don't "need to" but it improves the beer in my opinion.

Thanks Yoop.. sorry I just re-read the original post.

I was kind of hoping you'd say no.. I can't wait to drink it!

How's the sample taste?

I need to make this again- it's been a while and it sounds really good to me!

Fairly hoppy, and certainly not as malty as I thought. I'm sure it will still be a great beer. Not sure why it attenuated so much, other than a big starter.
