Is "splash racked" a euphemism for "oxidized horribly while moving to the keg", or am I
misinterpreting that? How did it turn out?Oh and on the substance of your question, I didn't
really dig the beer...

I think that's an overstatement of splash racking and its effects. It's standard practice in
the wine industry to kill sulphur. And when it comes down to it, a little bit of oxidation is

I splash racked it, killed the smell. Tell us how the beer turns out!

I'm so glad this thread was resurrected! I'd been in a bit of a beer rut. I went out and bought

a bad yeas...

That pretty much mirrors my experience on the dark ale. Less "Belgian character" than the split
T58 batch, and very drinkable.Yep, I have a terrible habit of wasting a perfectly good beer 10
days or s...

Well just bottled the Mosaic Pale Ale. First time using either the yeast or the hop. It's a fun
beer. The Belgian character is there but it's subtle, as I intended. Wanted it to be a
background note t...

I brewed a Belgian blonde with it about a month ago. The fermentation was straight up sulfer.

carbonation and I sti...

Just pitched this in a Belgo-American pale ale. Buddy of mine opening a brewery and wanted to
know if this would be a viable back-up yeast for some of his Belgian styles. I'm going in with
an open min...
