    I'm looking to make a dank IPA with Columbus, Apollo, and simco or equinox. has any one tried
    this with this base? With the goal of making it dank and not juicy, would I be just better off
    with the tr...

  • Posted in thread: Experiences with different saison yeast blends on 12-06-2016 at 02:00 AM
    Well I'm bottling my "'tis the Saison" tonight. Ended up using WLP500 and WY3711, more of the
    3711. (I used one tube WLP500 and most of a cold-crashed 400ml jelly jar of WY3711 starter)
    Pitched into 1...

    I'll keep re-using it. Does growing it up in a starter count as a generation though? I harvest
    yeast from my starters as opposed to the fermentor.I would think it sorta counts, probably
    depends how la...

    I'm by no means an expert on yeast choice in this style. A few things I know: WLP095 will
    produce an excellent, round flavor in this style with plenty of haze. It slowly drops clear,
    but the enormous ...

    do you keg? you can lager in the keg if so. either way, ferment low 50's til its about done,
    raise to 65+- for a diacetyl rest/finish out. then bring the temps back down and cold crash it
    in your cool...

    I kegged the 1.050 batch up last week, it was really nice. dank, melon, tropical. The 1.062
    batch was a bit disapointing. I had a power outage for 6 hours during the 1st day and things
    got up to 74 fo...

    most off flavors and esters are produced during the lag/growth phase and early fermentation.
    day 3 is still early but a lot of the yeast work has already happened. its not ideal but there
    is a good ch...

    Anyone ever get banana from Conan? I lost power during the first day and it got up to about
    72-74. Then back down to 62f by day 2. I've gotten spice/clove from warm temps but never
    fruity/banana. This...
