I made a pale ale with White Labs 007 with the intention of then brewing a barleywine on the yeast cake, but the yeast rose from 67 to 73 and the pale ale smells quite estery and a hint of fusel today on day 5, in addition, my brewhouse efficiency was too high (I guess I should be pleased) and the beer was 1.063, instead of 1.054, so for these two reasons, high OG and sorta high temp, should I not reuse it to make a big beer?
or is it fine, and I can brew a big barleywine and it won't make a difference?
and also, since the pale ale tastes a little off, is there a way to make my 5 gallons of sorta fruity, not bitter enough, not malty enough (the dry ale yeast) into something more palatable? raspberries?
There shall be in England seven halfpenny loaves sold for a penny; the three-hooped pot shall have ten hoops; and I will make it felony to drink small beer. -King Henry VI. Part II. Act iv. Sc. 2.
