My understanding is that special roast and victory are pretty different. Special roast is a
crystal malt right? Victory is more like a roasted base malt like biscuit. I could be

Great beers are made with Cascade. Buy a pound and use it all preferably with half added as dry
hop. You have a good selection. Citra and Simcoe would also play well.

Is the beer clear or is yeast still suspended in it? Maybe your mash thermometer is off. 158F
is fine but 162f could lead to bad things. Maybe your hydrometer is off. Does it measure what
it should. 1...

It's gonna make it super funky! You are basically proposing to ferment with bread yeast + lacto
+ pedio bacteria plus whatever else is in there. I'm not saying don't do it but I'd caution

Think of it this way. Your yeast can't be hurt. Otherwise anybody who hold a starter at RT to
crash the yeast would be killing all the yeast. If nothing else, what you did probably helps
the yeast by ...
