I racked my FT clone last night after letting it ride out in primary for about 2 weeks. It was a really long fermentation, likely because my temp was probably more like 65 degrees instead of 68 throughout most of the fermentation time. It was already loooking pretty clear. Looked and smelled great. Going to let it sit in secondary another two weeks and then bottle.

I washed the yeast and have a quart jar in the fridge right now. I didn't have any pint jars (otherwise I followed the directions in Bernie Brewer's excellent thread). First time washing yeast so hopefully it works out. I'm planning a brown ale to brew sometime next month, maybe throw in a little biscuit malt, and hopefully can use the Fat Tire yeast.

Does anyone know if any stores still have some of the fat tire yeast for sale? I just did a clone using california ale yeast, so I would kinda like to do another with the right stuff.

Just checked with http://www.austinhomebrew.com and they don't offer it anymore.

Damn New Belgium for filtering!

Awesome - Thanks for the tipoff. I ordered some today, I am thinking about just making a big starter to harvest this and either freeze or refrigerate it.

They do distribute in Chicago, but that is the only place in Illinois. I live about 3 hours south of Chicago, and it is nowhere in site. I think New Belgium convinced their distributor to at least sell it in Chicago. F'ing distributors.

haha, it's all over here in Iowa, and you're probably closer to Iowa than to Chicago!
