If it even does work after one generation it could throw out some funky flavors. I'm sure some strains might work better than others, but I wouldn't expect much more than 2 generations at most.
Actually, it's distillers yeast. I find it to be pretty tolerant of mishandling, as compared to wine or beer yeasts. I've gotten about the same from champagne yeast too though.

I've done fourth generation batches, but haven't tried to push beyond that. I didn't get any off flavors or aromas. However, I do always add yeast nutrient and energizer to my batches. One thing about distillers yeast, it will go horribly skunky if it runs short on nutrients.

Uh, yes.

Brewed and bottled last night.
3 hours with a couple long breaks in there.

Bottling went great.
Forgot to strain my wort into the fermenter though.
It will probably be OK though.
It was a kit with LME and DME plus Cascade.
No grains.

bobbilyn, call it the Black Knight, from the Holy Grail.
You cannot kill it!

Oh man I was in heaven yesterday. I visited the Idaho Brewing Company and got a tour of his brewery. Guy has nine or ten 20 barrel capacity fermenters.

Yup that was very cool

Cool! I've always been interested in distiller's yeast. Does it have a flavor profile, or is it really clean?

It is very slightly fruity. The lower the temps, the less fruit though. Around 85+ it's very fruity, but also starts producing more fusels then I would like.

I really need to get out and do something fun like that.

Cygnus, you don't have to strain, esp. if there are no grains. And I think I will change his name to Black Knight of the Holy Grail. I think the capper is at least 50-60 years old. I know I can get it working like a champ.


I realized it's March and this month marks one year since hubby was diagnosed with cancer. He's still got 5 1/2 months left on this round of chemo, and another surgery they are postponing until after the chemo. A long road. Also marks one year since I really became eccentric. Was already starting to lose it a little after both kids left home. Then hubby got sick and was in the hospital most of the time. That's when my eccentricities really started to show their true colors. Always been described as eccentric, since I was a child. But now, I'm that weird lady who lives in the woods. I find it odd that so many people around town seem to know who I am, but I don't have a clue who they are.

Well, time to go play in my craft room. I might work on the mural. Trying to make the room look like I'm in a fancy fish bowl. Aqua blue walls and I'm painting fish and bubbles on them and foliage and rocks at the bottom. Maybe I will paint the ceiling to look like the bottom of an old sinking pirate ship. Should be nice.

I suspect that they are just "I like this time at night on HBT" lurkers.

We don't think you are weird. You haven't started hooting at humans yet, have you?

I love visiting breweries. Some people travel around the country to visit baseball parks, I would like to do the same with breweries.

I tell you it was cool checking out the brewery. It is a one guy operation and all they do is keg. But man all the stainless and every thing.

Not to mention it was not a tour like a real tour. One of my buddies knows the guy and he talked to us and showed us around just for the heck of it. And then we had a pint of every beer he brews. Man I was rolling drunk by the end of it
