Hello,

I found a partial mash recipe that calls for Wyeast 3766 Cider yeast.

Is it ok to use cider yeast to ferment beer ? Will that make a big difference in the fermentation process or the final taste ?

Thanks !

Haven't seen that. I would expect poor attenuation, but maybe that's what the recipe calls for.

The recipe's a Corona Clone. Does it make more sense or not at all ?

Here's the recipe:

.50 lbs. Crystal Malt 20L
3 lbs. Dry Light Extract
2 lbs. Rice Flaked
1 lbs. Corn Sugar
2 oz. Saaz boiled 60 min.
1 oz Saaz boiled 15 min.
2 tsp irish moss (not included in calculations)
Yeast : WYeast 3766 Cider

My experience has been just the opposite...it attenuates very well, but it will produce a lot of flavours that aren't necessarily what people are looking for in their ales. That said, I did a Schwarzbier recipe with a cider yeast at ale temps and it dried out nicely and imparted some really unique flavours. Worth playing with.

Yeah, but for a corona clone?

Also in that recipe there is flaked rice but nothing to convert the flaked rice which seems weird unless I`m missing something.

Right...that is really weird. I'm seeing the same problem you are. Flaked rice has to be mashed. Good call.
