Ed,

This stuff is so good I am making another batch right now using the same, undadulterated recipe - why mess with a proven winner, right?!

What is the lowest temp you have successfully fermented at using the Montrachet yeast?

Thanks.

BrewStef

GOOD GOD!! I just read all 43 pages of this thread and my eyes are bleeding!!! But this sounds great got an extra carboy so why not! Think the only thing I'm going to change is go with brown suger instead of corn. Hopefully it will impart some more sweetness.

Think I'll make this up on Saturday.

couldn't find the recommended yeast locally so thats why i used ec 1118.
hopefully it won't hurt the outcome.

I used a Wyeast Champagne yeast (4021) for mine, and I have virtually no foam at all, after four days in the Better Bottle. There was very little foam at all so far, and like you said Ed, I've got those thousands of little bubbles running up the sides.

In fact, if the house is quiet enough, I can hear the bubbles.

It's awesome!

I used ec1118. I sampled it the other night. Its good. I think its going to ferment pretty dry, but that is what potassium sorbate and sweeteners and flavoring are for. I think we are going to add a bit of apple juice to it.

Is the reason we dont see much activity with the Montrachet yeast because it is a bottom fermenting strain?

Wow - mine's just about ready to keg. I clocked it at 1.073 before fermentation, and it's all the way down to 1.002! That's 9.3% ABV! This stuff is gonna be potent!
