    weeks ago and asked and they said they use another yeast for bottling to keep the st. sixtus

    @kaz4121 - I totally agree, but I can only do one temp right now. Brew like a monk also states
    they use a different yeast for botteling at St. B, and that is what we are trying to figure
    out. I cannot...
