commitment would b...

As an update, it tasted too sweet in Oct, so I let the secondary warm up to room temp over 5
days and pitched 2 packets of rehydrated US-05 with some yeast nutrient. After a week it has
signs of some ...

I made this with 2 rehydrated packages of Nottingham mashed at 149° and pitched at 79°
fermented at 72°-74° (I know, it's high, but I wasn't worried). OG was 1.044. After a week, it

Well, I for one am not a fan of Wild Rice in a beer.I agree with skibb. The flavor to me is not

A furious fermentation (even without kraussen or blowing off can raise the temperature of the
fermenting beer by 6 degrees or more on a bigger beer. I'm guessing the 65 pitch temp was of
the wort, but...

I've done a lot on MO recipies in the past and I feel like I have a good handle on that flavor

I wish I could, but I'm out. If they like it, they can harvest more next fall. ;)
