well i did the bee cave hefe and couldn't get the wienstephan so i had to go with the wb06 yeast. i pitched on the 16th and that night had blowoff within 5 hrs. with at least a gallon and a half of head space. that week fermentation seemd to slow dramatically with only a half inch of krausen bubbling every 10 seconds or so. i had planned on bottling on memorial day, but noticed the fermentation seemd to have picked up. now it's the 29th and i've got about 3 inches of krausen, with no signs of infection and bubbles every second.
i've been told on other forums that some yeasts have several different strains in a packet? when one stops another one starts? is this true? i'm sure one day my beer will stop bubbling, but i don't wanna stop it before its thru.
"Sometimes when i reflect back on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then i look into the glass and think about all the workers in the brewery and all their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work, and their dreams would be shattered. Then i say to myself, "it's better that i drink this beer and let their dreams come true than to be selfish and worry about my liver."" -jack handy
