Posted in thread: Mixing yeast strains (001 + Belgian?) on 03-22-2015 at 09:36 PM
My local homebrew supply shop scoffed at me when I mentioned wanting to try mixing yeast
strains. Is this really so crazy? I tried Victory's Moving Parts #3 IPA, which was brewed with
"Belgian yeast" ...

I can't be the first one to think of this, but thought I'd share anyway. A few days before
