You can do it this way, just be careful about what you put it into. When I first started using liquid yeast I bottled a heap at high krausen. At about 3 am the next morning they started exploding,...

You ever used this yeast?. My current batch has been at 90+ for a few weeks. It's gone from 1.025, to 1.006. Got about a week to go I reckon. This yeast is worth the wait IMHO.

I use it as a sub for biscuit. Very nice. I brewed a uk brown ale with 40% of it in the grist and it was very good! didn't last long:)

A spelt saison with 3724. It's around 1.020 after 3 days so hopefully it'll be done within a week. I pitched at 20c, then 24 hrs later cranked the heat up to 30c.

This is how I fermented the last batch of brown porter. Inspired by the uk "open square" fermentors. I pitched healthy stir plate grown yeast, and overnight had a nice krausen. I skimmed the first...

If I'm using a top cropping uk strain, hell yes, it's great healthy yeast. Much better than collecting from the bottom

Yeah me too, I'm borrowing the brew clubs engine at the moment. Not cheap :)

Roosmur, the burton ale should not disappoint, it's an ester bomb at higher temps. I under pitched it and fermented at...

As long as the height to width ratio is 1:1 or less ( wider than it is tall ), then it will be fine. This is apparently less stressful on the yeast and combined with an open ferment, which allows a...

I find wyeast 3725 beire de garde to give subtle Belgian flavours. Very light in phenols, and nice esters, without being overly strong in flavour. Light mustiness/perfume too, which quite like.

Best thing about top cropping is it's so easy when you're about to ferment another similar batch of beer. Sanitise, scoop fresh yeast, add to another fermentor and pitch new beer. Takes off very...

I brew lots of mild, I rarely go past 10%. Just preference. So broad a style. Some like to mash high, add heaps of crystal for lots of body. I actually don't mind if it's not thick and chewy, and...

Ok cool, I might try that. I just need to wait 12 months to get my oud bruin out of my glass carboys. I need a cellar!
