Since you don't have time to make a starter with liquid yeast, I would just rehydrate a packet of Safale 05 for the style you're brewing. Safale 05 is a good dry yeast. I've used it many times. ...

If you sanitized everything properly, carefully controlled your temp when you pitched, and controlled the fermentation temp, then the beer is most likely just green (and probably not fully carbed). ...

It's a good kit. Smooth as silk. Coffee is present, but plays the background. Pretty subtle in my opinion. NB's Nukey Brown Ale might be better suited for your tastes since you're not fond of...

Brewed the extract version on Saturday. I was lazy and didn't make a starter. Pitched a vial of WLP013 (London Ale) straight into the bucket. Once it got going, it really took off. I had to...

This is a very good recipe. I made the jump to all grain back in March, but I tried this one 'cause sometimes 6 hour brew days suck! This is one of the best beers that I've made. My favorite style...

Alright. Thanks for the reply. I can't wait to brew this.

On a different note, is 1 packet of the US-05 yeast enough? I hope so, because that's all I ordered... :confused:
