    for science glassware, if that's what you're after.

  • Posted in thread: Dupont yeast stalled. Okay to leave at high temp? on 07-29-2013 at 08:39 AM
    I've used Dupont 3 times, they all started hard and fast and stalled within 2-4 days at around
    1030-1035. But they also all finished dry (1005-1007) after a period of weeks at relatively
    high temp - 2...

    Thanks for the input. I'm planning on getting to this at the end of the summer while its still
    warm enough to push the fermentation temps for the Belgians. Are you willing to share the
    recipe you have...

    BTW I've had between 85-86% apparent attenuation using the bottle culture in high gravity
    beers, starting fermentation around 16-18c and finishing 28-32c.

    BuffaloBeer1, I can't speak for using Prior, I stepped up a culture from Pater 6. The reason I
    used the Pater is that it has the lowest abv of the St Bernardus beers - but to be honest I
    think all the...

    Hi Jasper,I'm really pleased that someone else is working on this and am really interested to
    hear more about your results - especially the pilot batch of Belgian Pale Ale.I cracked my
    first bottle of...

    Sid, I meant to respond to you on the SB12 yeast strains but we had not cultured or tested the
    strains in the SB12 until now. In this particular case BLAM is correct on the re-fermentation
    yeast being...

    Stan Hieronymus states in BLAM that St Bernardus utilizes a second yeast for bottle
    conditioning. After culturing from a bottle of Pater 6 I suspect that the yeast used to
    carbonate the 33cl bottles, ...

    Thanks for all the replies and the wide range of viewpoints expressed:)Chimay Blue, St
    Bernardus ABT 12, Westmalle Trippel and similar examples are my benchmarks and they're what I
    measure my own beer...

    I'm a relatively new brewer, but I know what I want to drink.I've brewed 16 batches since
    August 2012.I started out with high hopes and and the bare minimum of equipment.My first batch
    was dry extract...
