I like it too. I find if I ferment it low, it has a very 'clean' flavor profile, which is what I was looking for.

What temperature do you ferment it at for which styles?

I've always just done the recommended 68ish for everything, and have mostly used it in stouts and porters. I was a bit surprised at seeing your 60, as I have had a bit of trouble if dips down to even 65 or so, and white labs website mentions that this strain doesn't do well below 62- any tips on how to keep the yeasties happy at that temp, beyond a big starter and nutrient?
Btw, brewed this yesterday and fermentation is just really taking off, have it at 66 currently

I use Edinburgh more than any other yeast, probably, and use it at and around 60 if I want a clean yeast profile. I measure the temp using a digital controller with the probe attached to the outside of the carboy.

I make yeast starters or pitch multiple vials, depending on the size of the beer and my foresight. I oxygenate, but don't add nutrients. Have never had a problem with attenuation.

Good luck with your batch!

Congrats! I was at the evening session of the event. It wasn't my favorite event of the year but still good fun.

I was at the afternoon session, where they handed out the awards. Any festival featuring local beers is great, but I agree, there were a lot of hipsters around and the music was way too loud. In general, I felt old

I do like that it was local only, especially since two of my best friends are the brewers at Finch's. The crowd was a strange mix but was well behaved at least. I really enjoyed the Koval bierbrandy. It was well done.

I had Majestic from Pipeworks, which uses NS hops and was wonderful. Combine that with an established love of Chinook and I think this might be my next brew!
