Posted in thread: Would you skip the starter for Wyeast 3711 Saison? on 11-25-2015 at 02:56 AM
5 minutes after I mashed out my power went out ( I am a stove top brewer ), and was out for
hours and hours. By the time I was able to get back to it the mash was really stinky, so I had
to abort. I h...
Posted in thread: Saison yeast blend strategy on 11-19-2015 at 07:21 PM
I will be brewing a saison this weekend and I would like to get the character of the dupont
strain (3724) into the beer without having to deal with the challenges that come with the
strain (the need f...

Gotcha. Wyeast calls their California Common yeast 'California Lager yeast', so that threw me

My bad! I thought we were talking about their steam beer.

The recipe provided above is not actually a typical Anchor Steam beer clone, but rather a more
straightforward lager. Should be easy to find a proper California Common clone in the recipe
Posted in thread: Wyeast 2112 vs 1056 on 11-15-2015 at 06:58 PM
2112 is a much more malt forward strain, whereas 1056 will accentuate hops more. I'd use the
1056 for hop forward ales (actually, I'd use 1272 because it leaves a little more malt, though
Posted in thread: Was S-04 the right choice? on 11-09-2015 at 03:05 PM
I have not used s04 for American beers, but you mentioned you have used wyeast1099 in the past
for this beer - I'm fairly certain s04 is the dry equivalent to wyeast1099, so that may please

Thing is, I suspect there was a leak beforehand, and I for sure think it's possible. I've had

I feel like I kinda picked up on a funny smell after holding the smackpack in my car when I
picked it up, but really, I am not totally sure if it was leaking before I smacked it, or only
after. If I k...
Posted in thread: tiny leak in my smack pack. Dare I use it? on 10-30-2015 at 02:15 AM
So, I wasted 1/3 of my wyeast packet last night, but went ahead with the starter anyway, and
decided I would go get another today and make another starter. I am making a pilsner, and want
to be absolu...
