Posted in thread: How to survive the US as an bavarian immigrant without Augustiner Helles on Tap? on 09-30-2015 at 08:13 PM
Augustiner is a tough one to clone. You may want to try WLP 860 once it becomes available
again. I'm not sure what the source of that strain is, but in my opinion it deserves the name
Posted in thread: Does it matter to follow the recipe when it comes to fermentation time? on 06-25-2015 at 03:29 PM
You don't need to move to a secondary in your case. Fermentation time cannot be predicted, at
least not on a home brewer scale. It will be done when it's done - that can be three days or
three weeks. ...

Give it another 12 hours at least, or measure gravity. As the sticky in the beginner forum
says, fermentation may take up to 72 hours before showing visible signs.

A wonderful strain. It just works™ and lately, I've gotten over "neutral" yeasts and like
the character it brings to a beer. I've used in an Arrogant Bastard clone and it fit in

I just sampled the first bottle of my third batch with this yeast (repitched), and this is one
of my favorite strains. It's not only for IPAs, this latest batch is a 1.040/15IBU pale adjunct

I've had luck with Wy 2112 at 48F.
Posted in thread: I'm lazy. Am I missing out not using liquid yeast? on 06-15-2015 at 05:58 AM
The only way to know is to try. My newest trick is to brew 10G and split into 3 carboys with 3
different yeasts. Then I can directly see the difference. The other day a friend said: "Wow!
That's just ...

The only problem with dry yeast is that there isn't enough of it. It's cheap, convenient, I
only wish there were more strains available.

I'd cut the recipe in half, make 2.5 gallons and pitch one vial of the recommended yeast. When
its done, give it a taste and if you like it, make the 5 gal batch and re-pitch the yeast.
That's what I ...

Owning and running a brewery involves a lot more than just brewing. I love brewing, but I'd
hate all the rest. Doing my own personal taxes is bad enough, dealing with all the necessary
paperwork and r...
