Posted in thread: Attempted culturing from bottle, do I have wild yeast instead? on 09-25-2014 at 03:37 AM
The starter "beer" tastes/smells kinda like fruit juice that's gone off by leaving it out of
the fridge. Someone on another forum said that might be normal for the English yeasts. It

Hey guys,Tried culturing yeast from a bottle (Fullers IPA). There's a small yeast band? At the
bottom, and what looks like a mini krausen ring at the top. However the "beer" tastes weird -

Hey,This is a Pilsner (M84 yeast). It tasted fine so I kegged it anyway (and even bottled a
few). After diacetyl rest it was sitting at 1.011 or thereabouts.Do ya'll think it's an

Hey Guys,Is it unusual that my siphon (an auto siphon) takes like 20 minutes to transfer 5
gallons of beer? I always have the bottom of the vessel I'm siphoning from above the top of the
vessel I'm si...
