    Warm Fermented Lager Thread

    Thanks for the link. Have you done anymore exbeerments for s189 at higher temperatures? I'd prefer it over 34/70. Just a little bit more malt presence to me, or my lagers recipes has gotten better with s189, or both.

    Has anyone use s-189? I'd prefer this yeast over 34/70. I feel that s-189 give a better maltier flavor to my lagers. I have done maibock,marzen, and pilsners. I have not done warm fermenting and curious about s-189.

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Amber Ale version with Centennial-Simcoe-Amarillo will be next one into dry hop keg in two days. Curious about amber ale version. What makes it different? Crystal malts? Did you use the same base recipe and hopping rate, water profile, etc... do you get same hop juiciness?
