Tom Roeder on YouTube is probably too humble to post these vids, so I will! I don't know him, but watching his experiment involving several other YouTubers is very cool!

Basically, he is doing blind tests between Safale US-05 and Wyeast 1056. He brewed a single 10 gallon batch of pale ale, and split the fermentation. The only difference is that one batch was fermented with US05 dry yeast, and the other with Wyeast 1056 liquid yeast. He then had his brother and dad do a blind taste test. He also mailed samples to Bobby_M, jakecpunut, and nige4958, all of whom will do a blind taste test of the samples, and post their thoughts on YouTube. The entire experiment is on YouTube for us to enjoy. As someone who doesn't have the resources to do something like this, I think this is extremely fascinating! Ok, on to the vids...

Here is the first video. This is him brewing the beer, and detailing the conditions of the experiment:

First is the blind taste test with his father and brother, as well as his thoughts on the differences between these yeasts:

Now on to the other blind taste tests. Jakecpunut posted his results first:

Bobby_M's blind taste test results:

The final results from Tom:

Darn. This whole time I thought I was going to find out the results.

The anticipation is killing me, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Safale is A.

You might notice that Bobby describes beer B as being the better beer (more hops and body), while Jake and Tom describe beer A as being a better beer (for the same reasons). I think that Tom actually mixed up the sample labels so that there would be no preconceived notions between the reviewers based on the previously posted reviews (not that these guys would do that).

There is definitely one beer with more body and hops. It sounds like it is quite noticeable based upon each reviewer's description.

Granted, I haven't watched all the videos through yet, but was attention payed to pitching the same number of cells in each batch?

He used MrMalty to calculate the pitching rates for both. Details are in the first video.

Thanks. I must have glossed right over it. I'm fresh off a 10 hour shift on Saturday.
