Posted in thread: Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier Clone??? on 06-17-2009 at 09:58 PM
Has anyone used the Wyeast 3638 (WLP 351) instead of the Wyeast 3068 (WLP 300) with this same
recipe? I've been trying for a Julius Echter clone and my next step is to try the WLP 351. I

If you keg, use a CO2 line to purge the oxygen from the bucket. A few seconds at 10-12 psi

for a few sec...

This one is a bottle harvest that I stepped up to 1500mL, so I left it on the plate for a

I'm new to stirplate use and I've seen a dark ring form on the flask right at the liquid line
after a few days on the plate. Is this considered krausen when using a stirplate? Obviously the
