Posted in thread: 2124 vs 2278 for a Pilsner? on 04-13-2016 at 07:02 PM
I am not sure of the exact sources of these two strains, but I think the 2278 is one of the
several yeasts that are blended to ferment Pilsner Urquell. Maybe the 2124 is as well (
Bohemian just means ...

I've thought about this as well, as it is definitely one of my favorites. To get that colour
one would need a lot of Carastan, but it does seem to me like Central City does use a generous
Posted in thread: Which style lager would this be? on 04-01-2016 at 08:39 PM
Not sure this would fit into a style at all. Pilsner/vienna/Munich/Oktoberfest yeast/IBU would
all contribute towards an Oktoberfest/Marzen, but the choice/late addition of hops would mess
that up. So...
Posted in thread: Kolsch Yeast Question on 03-26-2016 at 11:21 PM
I've only used wyeast Kolsch once, but I guess I lucked out because I bottled after two weeks
in primary (no cold crash) and after 3 weeks in the bottle I had a beer that wasn't exactly

Posted in thread: "English" bitter with American hops? on 02-24-2016 at 07:02 PM
Sounds like you are aiming for a beer that I would prefer over the typical 'ISA' that is
popular these days. In my opinion, an English Bitter with lots of american hop flavour and
aroma is more intere...
Posted in thread: Bottle-to-Bottle Off Flavors on 02-15-2016 at 07:41 PM
If this happened to me, I think I would suspect that the banana-y bottles were perhaps not
properly cleaned and sanitized, and that there is a wild yeast, or bacteria in there,
continuing to ferment t...
