    This is great info, guys. Super informative.I'm guessing the consensus is to just pitch the
    right amount of the starter (a la Mr. Malty calculations) into the bottling bucket as part of
    that process. ...

    Won't champagne yeast also ferment more than the beer yeast would? Resulting in
    overcarbonation?I don't think this is a serious issue, because it's already reached its final
    gravity (1.058--->1.005 ov...

    Thanks, both of you.@dstar: I'm using dry champagne yeast (Red Star brand) and it's already
    been turned into a starter. I rehydrated according to the package instructions and pitched into
    some DME as ...

    Hey everyone,I have a Saison that's been in the carboy for a couple of months, now ready to
    bottle, that I'd like to add a champagne yeast for bottling. I've tried searching the threads
    and can't seem...

    Posting this update for anyone who might be interested later: I pitched this starter after
    warming it up in bath (as I posted above), about 28 hours after I originally made the starter.
    The Saison I p...

    Thanks, everyone. Lots of helpful information here. I think the take-away for me is that this
    isn't the end of the world--or the yeast--and that as far as this batch goes, it might be a
    game time deci...

    Hi everyone,Very cold starter wort question. First though, the requisite story: earlier today,
    I made a starter for a Saison I'm brewing tomorrow evening. Everything went as planned, and
    even though t...

    Thanks, Bill. This was my thinking and the reason I proceeded to bottle as usual. It was only a
    nagging worry that prompted me to throw this out here.Fingers crossed...

    Yes, it was covered--bottles were sanitized as usual. I'm not very concerned about infection
    because I was pretty meticulous about sanitizing (even the bucket cover was thoroughly sprayed
    before I had...

    So, I'm still relatively new to homebrewing but I have several brews under my belt already.
    However, last Saturday, after adding the priming sugar to my bottling bucket and gently racking
    the beer ont...
