    Thoughts on this?WLP002/WLP644 as a co-pitch / blend in primary.I'm trying to figure out how
    much of a part the 644 would play in this? given I would probably begin by pitching into a low
    gravity beer...

    Actually, you might be surprised. Every yeast I used resulted in what I would define as a "NE
    IPA." I have a Saison I am drinking right now that I used 644 in..... I could actually see it
    working quit...

    diacetyl is the #1 complaint.yep!

    Have you seen anyone use WLP644?Lots of people use it, but I dont think you could call it a NE
    IPA?given the strain your using? The strain is a wild sacc strain, i thinkthe consensus is 1318
    for it to...

    what size starter are people making? I just recieved a vial and was shocked at the tiny amount
    in the vial, it says i can pitch into 5 gallons.I'd suggest a lager sized starter.

    That'd be oxidation.

    1% seems low. If I'm using 12oz to make 5 gallons, that says use .1oz as first wort. I wouldn't
    jump right to that. Like I said, aim for 35IBU of boil hops, be it 60 or 30 minutes, and then
    the rest a...

    Crazy thing happened to me on my first ferment with the M10-Workhorse. Did a 10 gal cream ale
    and split between that and Wyeast 2112. I do 3 week primary and then keg. So at the end of 3
    weeks the 211...

    That looks like a great recipe. Lots of great tips for sure. My LHBS does not carry Wyeast
    though. Are there any viable strains from white labs?Also, for a hop schedule, what about:First
    wort: 25g (19...

    fermenters are the bomb.
