    The dekoninick yeast is available as a seasonal. wlp515, or wyeast3655. That is the probably
    the best yeast for this beer. That not being currently available, Id go with wyeast1762 or
    wlp550 and ferme...

    That looks fine. around 10% roast darker grains is perfect for an RIS that is going to age just
    6 months. If you feel the need to simplify, I dont believe you will notice a 1/2 lb of oats or
    the biscu...

    Looks reasonable, the hop flavor should be medium, noticeable but not too assertive. I see no
    problems there.

  • Posted in thread: Yeast starter cross contamination? on 07-02-2015 at 07:31 PM
    Unlikely, if you have reasonable practices. And it would take a good amount of yeast to get a
    vigourous starter in 48 hours. That isnt one lucky airborne cell that somehow got out from
    beneath the one...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast start has beer/vinegar smell on 07-02-2015 at 07:27 PM
    Starters smell weird sometimes, its beer thats fermented for 2 days at usually too high a temp.
    take a taste of the starter beer, if there is a clear vinegar taste id be cautious and use dry

    1. Thats a really, really, thick beer. Ive never had KBS so I dont know what you are going for,
    but when I make an RIS im usually do everything I can to dry it out (sugar, mashing at 146) ,
    and its st...

  • Posted in thread: Undecided Best Bitter on 07-02-2015 at 06:54 PM
    I like styrians in bitters, especially in the summer, Id add a flame out addition of styrians
    (or a small dry hop) if you got them. Id just leave the crystal, If you use pale chocolate, id
    keep it in ...

    carafoam is a 0L crystal malt. So you are using 2.5 of crystal malt, thats a ton. You are
    likely to have a thicker beer than youd like. Id drop it. Biscuit and victory are two different
    maltsters vers...

  • Posted in thread: Czechvar clone on 07-02-2015 at 06:41 PM
    The actual czechvar yeast is available, its wyeast2000. 34/70 will make a good pils, but german
    and czech yeasts have a different character, the czechvar/budvar yeast isnt super clean, it has
    subtle f...

  • Posted in thread: Strange yeast... what do you think? on 07-01-2015 at 07:34 PM
    Dont move the beer off the yeast until fermentation is complete. Leaving the beer in primary
    for 6 weeks is not an issue. Just leave it be until it finished. So Option 1. I have no idea
    what caused th...
