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

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

keep it in ...

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
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
