I have Windsor and Safale S-04 - which do you think might be closer to Ringwood? I'm trying to duplicate a recipe (my wife loved it!) but do not have the Ringwood yeast,

Thanks!

Definitely Windsor and keep it near the top of its temperature range to maximize the fruity esters.

Thanks! I was thinking I would have no use for my 3 packs of Windsor (which I got in a whim!)

Don't forget, it is a relatively low attenuation yeast.

It means you can get the exact Ringwood strain from Wyeast:

Yes, the OP could buy Ringwood; that doesn't answer his question.

Yes, you answered his Q, we were drifting off topic, at least to a tangent topic that the product was available... just in case he meant he couldn't 'find' it. Now he knows where he can get it in the future.

Oh OK thanks! Actually I am not terribly interested in it, particularly if my $1.60 pack of Windsor does the trick That vs $6 for the Ringwood liquid yeast, $2 for malt extract to make the starter, and an extra 2 days to get it working before pitching, then coaxing the beer to continue fermenting when it stalls after 2 weeks at 1020... Tastes great but I am not that patient and I live on a teachers salary!

Anyway I think I'm a dry yeast kindof brewer as it turns out since I have made brilliant beer with dry yeast!!



Cheers,
Steve da sleeve
