Hrm, good to know; I figured it would improve with some longer conditioning, but if the improvement is merely marginal after 6 months I might go ahead and bottle it earlier! cheers
Drinking mini imperial stout
bottled rye pa
fermenting Belgian strong
what would be a bry yeast substitute for the WLP 530?
Can't get any liquid yeast where I live and I'd love to try this recipe!
I don't know. I did a quick search on here and google but didn't come up with a viable option.
4403L brewed since August 2011.
I love this beer. It's going on my list of brews.
Check out my Crusade for Better Beer out at: http://www.beercrusades.blogspot.co.nz/
Running out of it again, I will have to brew it pretty soon. My family is coming this summer and my dad asked for that specific beer. Have no choice The other recipe, the one from the contest will be bottled soon.
I'm sure you will like the kwak. I bottled mine the day after the contest and it is not readay yet. My dad is coming also but he asked for an ipa.
Have fun brewing.
I'm gonna try this recipe!
I just have two doubts:
-Why is that a 90min boil if you just boil the hops for 60mins?
-When should I add the candi sugar? 15mins before end the boil?
Hope this works well and I have the same result as you guys.
A pilsen base recipe usually need to boil longer than a marris otter or other base malt based recipe.
You can add the sugar anytime you want.
Good luck let us know how it works for you.
Did you find a substitute for wlp 530?
