I ordered two recipes from Austin Homebrew Supply. One was a Budget Brown Ale and the other was a Red Stripe Clone. Both were shipped with yeast and cold packs. I made the Red Stripe over a week ago and during the fermentation process, I learned that the yeast that had shipped probably got too hot and spoiled. I ended up buying another Wyeast Smack Pack from my LHBS. I'll never order Yeast online again.
Well, Sunday afternoon I made the Brown Ale. Oddly, the OG is suggested to be 1.048. Well I measured the OG and it is 1.060. Anyways, I poured the White Labs English Ale WLP002 yeast in and have it fermenting at about 70F - 72F. Well, nothing is happening. My guess it that the White Labs yeast also got too hot and spoiled.
Sorry for the story, I was trying to fill and gaps. So. I have an extra Wyeast American Lager 2035. Can I use this? I know better. I will probably pick up another White Labs yeast tomorrow after work and pitch it again. So maybe I don't have a question.
