    stopped. Sample read 1.013 for ~ 71% AA. Hydromemeter sample was clear as a bell. Swirled yeast

    Test number 2 with the scottish ale went well. It's done fermenting as of today. I took daily
    gravities on this one. Here's how the fermentation went.Day 1: Pitch, swirl fermenter to break
    up yeast, t...

    Opened a bottle today. No cidery or tart off flavors! I tested the gravity of the bottle 1.010.
    There seems to be a slight increase in carbonation (as the 1.002 point drop in gravity would
    suggest). T...

    How did the test go?I'll open a bottle later today and take a gravity and check carbonation
    then compare it to a sample from the keg.

    I spoke with a brewer at Wyeast about the issues I am having. What we discussed: [*]1968 Does
    indeed have a high o2 requirement. [*]Do a forced ferment test with pitched wort (from the
    fermenter). A g...

    I have also had similar issues with 1968 yeast and bottling. I love the flavors of it and how
    it drops clear in a few days but I have the same issues as many other have when bottling it.
    Here are some...

    I replied a minute ago, but it seemed to have been lost.....anyway, here goes again:I brewed a
    batch of a Moose Drool clone in 2012, with 1968. It was my only time using that yeast. I have
    been brewin...

    I've never had a problem with 1968. I also don't drop temp at all. I pitch cold, like 60 and
    allow to rise to 65-68 and hold until fermentation slows. Then I simply let it rise and rouse
    it daily unti...

    What size starters are you using? Most recipes I see for this strain recommend a 2L, for that
    reason of stalling out. How long do you primary/secondary for? Any insight into your process
    might help na...
