1 Pack Fermentis US-05
I generally keep Vienna and Columbus on hand, so this makes regular appearances. I like it, good luck.
I just did a very similar brew. I ended up splitting the wort into two carboys and pitched s-04 in one, and s-05 in the other. The 04 smells awesome and tastes good from the sample i took when transferring to secondary. The 05 kinda smells apple juicey. That happened last time i pitched with 05. What temerature do you ferment your 05 at?
also. has anyone else had this issue? it was pretty steady temp at 70...is that too high for 05? any help is greatly appreciated. thanks yall!
p.s. ive heard that apple juiceish smell (diacetyl?) is sometime in young beers, but my first batch that seemed like that has been in bottles for like 4 weeks
