I am thinking next time to do more sugar than the yeast can handle by a little bit.

Still good, but needs tweaking.
You could just keep adding sugar as it ferments until the yeast poop out.

Just out of curiosity, what gravity did you start at?

I should be getting mine going tomorrow. I'm going to try and dilute things to about 1.150 so I'm more likely to ferment dry. My thought is that if it ferments out leaving it too sweet when I Eis it the final product will end up being way too sweet. Won't know until it try though.

That makes sense. I am just thinking that the un-eised version should be sweeter. Not sure of the OG.

I'de agree with that. I guess my two biggest concerns are getting it to ferment all the way down and keeping my starting volume as low as I can since my freezer is full of elk meat and I'm short on space in there.

I just used a danstar yeast cake from a pale ale.
You've said this a few times now. Which danstar yeast did you use? Notty? Munich?

Fermentation is complete and the two gallon jugs are clearing nicely into a nice looking clear amber color. Couple more days and I should be ready to Eis he batch.

Cheezy, did you Eis any of yours yet? How did it go?

No, the first product was enchanting. I carbed it and am enjoying an occasional glass.

Will do another batch.
