  • Posted in thread: Conditioning in fermenter vs. bottle. on 10-05-2015 at 07:02 PM
    I would think bulk aging gives better consistency for the batch. As bottles, each can be
    slightly different with minor changes in yeast/temp/oxygen/CO2. Grand scheme of things,
    probably not enough to ...

    So, I just made a 12 gal batch of IPA with an OG of 1.078 that I pitched wyeast 1187 in. Well,

    Ive never had their beer but as far as yeast goes, you could email the brewer/brewery. Many

  • Posted in thread: Raspberries - with Wyeast ? on 07-13-2015 at 04:58 PM
    It will ferment. I make ciders with US04 and nottingham regularly. Ive never made a rasberry
    wine before but i say give it a go. 1056 is neutral so should be alright
