  • Posted in thread: Too much trub when I collected yeast? on 10-27-2016 at 01:30 AM
    When I let the slurry/boiled water mix sit for extended periods, such as several hours, I can't
    separate the yest from the trub - I am never able to find the yeast layer. I start boiled and
    chilled wa...

    I could get the same doughy fruity esters from a dry pitch I'd order a few bricks.Also for
    those that hav...

    carbonated, which i...

    If I had to pick one, it would be West Yorkshire Ale 1469. I like the fruity profile, with a
    bit of mineral and nutty finish. If I could have two, they would be 1469 and 1968 for my ESBs.

    It's really a great beer. Not sure why it's so remarkable, as a saison is a simple recipe and
    one is pretty much like any other, but this one is my go to in the spring. Heck, it's my go to
    year round....

    Anyone used something other than orange blossom honey for this recipe with good results? How
    about this one? - a friend of mine keeps bees. I use his stuff almost exclusively. Always
    great and I rea...

    As noted by another poster - this is what I do. Not saying it is right or required.I condition
