I just pitched ~100 mL of ECY20 from 11/2013 into 5g of 1.078 wort. It took about 30 hrs to get
a krausen, but bubbled hard for 36 hours after. I guess I'll find out in about 12 months if it

Yep, I've fermented three beers back to back with it actually, but all of them in buckets so I

So I pretty much followed the recipe exactly. Brewed it on May 18. Took a hydro sample this

If the 3711 hadn't finished (and it seems it didn't), then you just racked off all the higher
attenuating cells (still in suspension) and left all the low attenuating cells in the cake.In
