I can't wait to buy some cry havoc and use it for the first time. I am thinking of making a starter and then collecting half for freezing and the other half for pitching. Maybe this will be my first lager. Has anyone on here used it for both ale and lager?

I just got a vial in yesterday, haven't decided what to use it on yet. Prolly an ale. It does look like attenuation isn't all that high, which I'm factoring into the equation.

I noticed that too about the yeast, wonder why it is lower?

Homebrewer_99 man that is some setup.


I really like the baby food jar idea.

My yeast bank currently has Wyeast 1010, and will soon have 1056 and the VSS Fat tire. i bought 60 vials, so i was thinking 6 strains x 10 vials each. thats feeling very limiting now, as i'd like to add a kolsch, the northwest ale, the irish ale, and a couple strains of yeast from local breweries.
