I think they're alright. If I want to make a quick brew to drink then I use them. I don't like the coopers yeast though. I'll buy some safeale 05 for a coopers kit.

Lol....on the mutant yeast. It was only some left over yeast from a can of liquid extract I used in an IPA batch.

BTW, I'm not new to brewing, just cider.

If I had to venture a guess, I'd say she's pissed about all the money you're spending on brewing. No problem, I've figured out a method so that SWMBO is none the wiser to money I've spent.

Pretty long I'd say, keep it sealed and you'll be fine. They say homebrew can be stored up to a year before it starts to go bad.

So I've hit a wall; can't think of a recipe for my brew day Thursday. Plan on doing an extract, and looking for a lighter beer with a higher gravity. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Get rid of the safeale 05 and go get some wyeast 1056....much better fermentation and taste. 05 leaves some fruity esters just like the coopers dry yeast....even when fermented in the low 70s.

Try the NB chocolate milk stout extract kit. Pretty good beer. I have a batch of it kegged right now and it's the bomb. Has a little sweet finish with the pound of lactose you put in.
