  • 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 ...

  • Posted in thread: Central City Red Racer IPA on 04-01-2016 at 08:45 PM
    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
    amount. Mayb...

  • 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
    bright, but mo...

    rrhoads, sorry if I don't follow, but I think the best thing to do in order to get an
    appropriate count of the healthiest yeast possible is to make a starter on a stir plate and
    step it up once. Use a...

  • Posted in thread: Bohemian Pilsner starter options on 03-15-2016 at 10:29 PM
    rrhoads, using an older packet will provide you with a smaller cell count, and so the finished
    starter will also contain a smaller cell count as well. Entering the date of manufacture into
    Brewer's Fr...

    I use the Brewer's Friend Yeast Calculator. According to it, going from 2 liters up to 5
    liters, and using a stir plate for 10 gallons of 1.050 wort will give you a solid 1.8 million
    cells/ml/degree p...

  • 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...
