Hello
I opened a new tube of WL001 to make a starter....since this is my first time using liquid yeast.... I am curious as to what type of smell and rection to expect when you first open a tube from WL liquid yeast.... in particular this strain.
Thx
JC

It smells like yeast? I'm not sure how to describe the smell. Next time you finish racking a beer out of your fermenter, dip your finger in the yeast cake and smell it. That's what healthy yeast smells like.

Kind of a sharp , bready smell? I guess? Maybe a vitaminish(is that a word?) to it?
