I have one pack of WYeast 1007 German Ale Yeast in a 2L flask in 1L of starter wort. Twice now it has overflowed the flask.
This is my first time with this yeast, is that normal for this strain?

Primary:Drovers II
Secondary:Trailer Trash Pillhead Blonde
Keg carbing & conditioning:
Drinking:Woodchuck Cider, Schwarzbier, Dalerweisse Wheat
On deck: German Wheat

  • If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
