Just switched to BIAB instead of my 10 gallon igloo cooler - I must say, this is stupid easy. I
wish I would have switched earlier. - First time - Nailed temp (151) - Lost maybe 1 or 2

I have been wanting to try this yeast FOREVER. From what I've read, it's just like White Labs
California Ale Yeast (WLP 001) except it is more fruity - which sounds even better IMO.:rockin:

Well I went ahead and pitched the White Labs California V in the starter. I might wait for two
days, not sure yet. Possibly just wait 20 hours.

Just recently bottled a hefeweizen and I thought the same thing. After 2 weeks though, it has a

Greetings,I have a quick question, I recently bought some Muntons kits to brew, and I took the
