My first and only attempt at this was 5.1%. It was ok. I need to do it again and scale it for 85% eff.

Doing BIAB this time. So far so good. Have to say it is much easier than using MLT.

made this back in Jan and gotta say when i tapped it in Feb I wasnt impressed. For my taste it was too hoppy for a small beer. Lo and behold I had a kegerator issue and ended up storing this away in my fermentation freezer and kinda forgot about it. Threw it back on tap this week and holy cow it is awesome. Crystal clear, so very smooth drinking. Going to have to get 10 more gallons ready for the summer camping schedule as this is one i think all the women will drink as well.

I had to wait about 4 weeks after I kegged it for my first batch. It was fantastic.Great summer beer. It is going on rotation.

All this waiting, it's hard to keep something on tap. Feels like I have to brew the same beer every other week just to keep it on tap :P

I just ordered the ingredients for my first all grain batch and inaugural brew on my new eHERMS system. I loved the partial mash version of this I brewed a few months ago.

I have a Wyeast 1056 and Nottingham on hand. I think I've read 1056 is a good yeast for this beer as its pretty similar to Notty, right?

I bought the Wyeast for a beer that never came together and it needs to be used, getting close to 6 months in the fridge.

EDIT: MrMalty says I'm at 10% viability and that I need 10 packs of yeast for a 1.5L starter.

How about 1 pack on the stir plate for about 16-18 hours?

I'm confident it will be fine....just need to get my starter going ASAP with this aged yeast for tomorrow's brew.

I used months old washed yeast. First I made a 1L starter then from that a 2L starter. That produced more than enough cells.

24 hours on stir plate should do it. That's what I do. Never done less than that so couldn't tell you.
