Hi all. I'm having a hard time finding an answer to this so maybe y'all can help. I'm in NY
state and I'm growing two varieties(first time grower), Mt. Hood and Sterling. My sterling hop
has an issue ...

Indeed. +1 +1 +1

Also, get your ph down before you pitch grain (lacto). I believe 4.8 is the happy spot for
lacto. And, +1 for kettle souring. That 5 week number is no joke. I suggest letting it hang in
the bottle for...

The author of Farmhouse Ales also suggests those temps for 3724. And DuPont uses those temps as

This yeast made a very solid beer. Pleasantly phenolic, good yeast character, even minerality
(5g of gypsum on NYC water). Hop character is a little muddled (probably brewer error). Did
this by fermen...

How'd it attenuate for you guys?

Awesome! Glad you liked it. There is very little working info on this yeast so I'm glad we're
able to play a part in it.I started mine in the mid 50's (55) ramped up and it no hovering at
60 and I'm g...

Old Newark Beer yeast acts quite odd. I propped up a starter from an older vial and it went
very slowly. Much more slowly than anticipated. So, I ramped it up with another dose of DME. It
