War Bird is a saison, so it'd totally make sense that it would taste differently than an S-05
batch. I'm sure they use a saison yeast either from BSI or perhaps the local yeast lab, Omega.
They don't ...

I didn't ask further questions. Didn't want to take up too much time or come off as a absolute
noob. This was a few months ago when the mosaic saison was released. Jesus that beer was good.

I've spoken with a few people there. I can't say that they use S05 for all their hoppy ales,

From what I understand most of their IPAs and PAs use simple dry S05 yeast or the equivalent

Also a couple questions. What was your batch size and efficiency? Is your dry hop addition 1.5

How did this turn out? Any tweaks you would do for a future batch? I really like SoS and have a
buddy who is insane for it. Would love to brew this if it is close.

Not sure how convenient the store is, but I'd just grab a few packs of S-05 and call it a day.
It will be good yeast for a SMaSH as it won't produce a ton of flavor that would interfere with

I'd do some easy water analysis/additions. You can probably get a water report from your city.
At worst, do some filtering and/or campden tablets to get the chlorine, or chloramine, out. I
can't say i...

For the first time brewer, I think the easiest thing to overlook is fermentation control.
Mainly because kits don't really give you enough good information on it. Make sure you pitch
enough yeast and ...
