Sparging a porter, kegging an ESB, pining over a pilser (so slowwww...), and sipping on a home brewed saison. Life is good!

Not brewing today, but I checked the SG on my Oatmeal Dark Mild. Friday morning the SG was 1.015, and this morning the SG was 1.009. I am really amazed that Friday morning the Mild was cloyingly sweet, and today, not even close. My house yeast is London ESB 1968, and through the many generations it has reduplicated itself, it not only tolerates higher alcohol levels, but the attenuation is well into the 80% level I would guess. It still flocculates like crazy, and unless something goes bad, I will keep this strain alive as long as I can.
It also makes great hard apple cider, it doesn't eat up all the sugar, and drops out crystal clear.



Reason: Cider notation

^ how many gens have you gone so far? Im new to harvesting and reusing yeast, and was under the impression you had to buy new after about 5-6 generations. Would be awesome if i could stretch it more

Well,wort is almost cooled down to temp,cleaning & sanitizing the spigot & mounting hole. Only lost 1/2 gallon to boil off by adjusting the boil on the burner knob to between 8.5-8.8. It'll be interesting to see how well the super moss works on this 1st try with it. Can't wait to get it in the fermenter & pitched on so I can clean up & be done for the day.
I have 5 dark hybrid lagers waiting in the fridge.

I've never gone beyond a single repitch, but my understanding was that you could go as far as you want. According to their brewmaster a local brewpub has their house strain they repitch continuously, and will continue to let it go indefinitely until further notice. However around that 5-6 strains mutations become more noticeable. Ok maybe for an evolving house strain in a brewpub, but for true consistency it could be problematic. How fast they become noticeable, how noticeable they become, all that stuff I'd assume depends on the yeast, the wort, and the fermentation conditions. The same brewpub uses other strains maybe 8 or 9 times before they build up a fresh pitch from a slant.
