Posted in thread: Large Starter for Lager on 01-28-2015 at 05:23 PM
In addition to Chris White's book, which is a pretty good balance between technical and
homebrewer-practical information on the subject, you can check these experimental results.
There are also techni...

Just an added note: this yeast you're using (which is purportedly Weihenstephan's W-206 strain
from their bank, and is the same as WLP820) is a notoriously slow starter, generally prefers

Brewsday, just seeing this but thank you for brewing the recipe and giving feedback. Glad to
hear it turned out well.
Posted in thread: Yooper's Oatmeal Stout Yeast Substitution on 12-30-2014 at 10:02 PM
I think you'd be fine substituting either one, even though they will both dry out a little more
than the suggested WY1335 British Ale II. If those are your only two options, I would
personally go for ...

I'd say disregarding mash style would be a big mistake, personally. For Scottish ales you

stand point, I am accounting for that. Where I live our water is really soft, so for this batch

just got my hands on some fresh Dinner and absolutely love itThat ain't no lie right there.
Dinner is awesome. BGBC is probably right, though; that's one of their bigger beers, and with
that comes som...
Posted in thread: Bottle Conditioning with Brett on 12-17-2014 at 09:31 PM
Couple of things: recently there has been some discussion that perhaps WLP644 is actually not a
strain of Brett, but actually a Sacc C strain. mentions Orval in his post, and they use the

I have been to the brewery multiple times and have spoken to the brewers; they use the Chico
ale yeast, so no need to harvest it. They build it up on Peeper for a few batches, and then end
up using it...
