Interesting. I may go the route of starting with the wlp500 and adding the Saison yeast later in the fermentation then. Maybe ferment the wort with wlp500, rack the beer, then add the candi sugar and...

Belgian yeast strains.

I'm planning on brewing a Belgian golden ale and was thinking of combining wlp500 (Trappist) with wlp568 (Saison blend). I planned on starting fermentation around 68 and letting it ramp up naturally....

Unfortunately, I don't even know where to start. I've never been a huge fan of wheat beers, so I've never brewed one. But I agree, it's an amazingly excellent beer! I know a lot of great brewers...

ISO - NG Dancing Man Wheat recipe

We take a yearly vacation to Wisconsin to enjoy the Dells and when I'm in state, I make it a point to drink as much of the good local beer as possible. Typically, I'm not a big fan of wheat beers,...

Old hops

Long story short, we moved houses and downsized about 3.5 years ago. Until recently, I didn't have a place to brew and so have been on an extended hiatus. Prior to moving, I purchased about 5 lbs of...

Do you vourlauf? Also, without waiting for the grainbed to settle after the first batch, do you lose or gain any efficiency? Is the beer considerably cloudier?

I have to second david's opinion. Those are the wrong type of hops for what you are trying to do. The tettnang and hallertau are going to go far better with something darker as a bittering hop...

Oatmeal Milk Stout - Extract -> AG

Yeast Starters

I am now a 100% believer in using starters. I just brewed an ESB (modified Fuller's clone) and used WLP002 with a 2L starter. OMG! That stuff took off within a couple of hours and has been one of...

Ah, ok, thanks. I'm not a huge fan of really hoppy beers, so I was staying on the conservative side with the hops.

Just a hot water soak does wonders. I wouldn't soak it with oxyclean as it tends to leave a residue when you let it soak. The last time I did that, I had to follow up with a good hot water soak and...

By puree, do you mean just putting a 1/2 lb of cherries in the blender, or buying a premade product?

Also, would it be advisable to add something like lactose, just to bring out the cherry flavor...
