Bierhaus, thanks for weighing in!

The last time I used this yeast the krausen fell in the first week as expected, so I was pretty surprised by this turn of events.

Any pictures of this? It sounds great, especially for making a big starter for a big beer.

How do you predict pitching rates from top-cropped samples? Is it a constant I could plug into Mr. Malty?

Well -- you all were right.
SG 1.076

Hey all:
I thought I'd post a recently brewed Bier de Garde. This is the first time I've brewed it as a partial mash, and I think it may be one of the best beers I've ever brewed. It's very malt...

Don't worry too much about turbid mashing -- I guess you won't have a particularly traditional lambic without it, but you'll get a very good beer.
