Patients my friend. In due time I will finish this experiment. For now the four bottles are conditioning in my cellar, anxiously awaiting my arrival.

from my exp with the monchracet, if you hydrate the yeast first, you dont get the rhino stomping grounds. tried it on my 3rd batch and was suprised.

btw, subscribed. cant wait to hear about this. you going to let em ride a full yr on the yeast? I noticed my longer term batches came out better too.

Sorry guys. I have been busy neglecting this thread and also the apfelwein. I was planning on coming back to this around October to do the final comparison.

I went ahead and opened two of the growlers and they smelt like straight sulfur. It was awful and could get myself to take a sip it was so bad. I think I over pitched the yeast. Sorry for the let down. I will be redoing this one soon guys.

Did you dump the whole pack of yeast into the growler?
