21st Amendment's Brew Free or Die is well balanced IMHO.

Posted in thread: How many yeast strains do you horde? on 11-02-2015 at 06:31 AM
Hm, let me count. WLP 860, Wyeast 1217, 2112 and 3711 and bottle harvested PacMan are under
saline or on slants. 1217 and 860 are my current go-to strains. A handful of packs of dry yeast

Beer, it will be beer. Expect it to become the best beer you ever made, with the big drawback
that you'll never be able to reproduce it again.

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.
