    Bucket lids do not always seal tight, so you can't always rely on airlock activity to know if
    fermentation has started. I just brewed Saturday and used a lid that has never sealed tight. I
    almost had ...

    So I have basically switched to 05 for Am ale yeast usages. I usually have it going within 24
    hours. Anyways this time I get no bubbling after 24 hours at all, or the next(this) morning.So
    I decided t...

    The saison I brewed last month with Nelson Sauvin and Sorachi Ace hops. Fermented at 68 for 2
    days then 85 ramped over 2 days for the rest of 3 weeks. WLP565. Flavors consist of lemon,
    pear, apple, or...

    I just used this yeast last month. I made pretty standard grist(I havent use pils because of my
    apt stove setup and not having faith in the the ability to boil off flavor from the pils
    compounds)Anywa...

    Thanks for the feedback guys, I will probably drop the lovibonds on everything and use a bit
    more regular roast as the main specialty to get the pronounced roast coffee with Carafa I and
    some dark cry...

  • Posted in thread: English ale yeast hates me on 07-09-2012 at 03:24 AM
    Three things come to mind:1) English ale yeasts produce more esters so will be more fruity2)
    the beer is still "green" and you have a fair amount of acetaldehyde, which has a green apple
    flavor. More ...

  • Posted in thread: English ale yeast hates me on 07-01-2012 at 06:42 AM
    I haven't had a very long history of brewing(over a year), but I have used English ale yeast a

    excessive...

    Ellies Brown Ale clone, and my first AG batch. Nailed it, it tastes exactly like the commercial
    beer, despite having to use Northern Brewer for bittering in place of Bullion. S-04 is so
    flocculant! I ...
