When the shoots come up, they aren't always uniform in how their leaves look. They don't even
stay the same as they mature, either. I would trust that you have whatever you ordered.I think

120 is usually the protein rest, where the sacc rest is in the 145-158 range (depending on how
fermentable you want your wort).Most mashes don't need a super long protein rest, if any. You
might want ...

The bigger hop bill of an IPA is a likely cause. Hop assist in head retention of a beer, and
think of the bubbly krausen as akin to a head. There could also be a little more protein than

I've used both - just finished an extra pale ale with S-05, and have an excellent super saison

It looks like the upto office actually has a "plant patent," which I was confusing with the
