Huh! I think that's the first AHS recipe I've seen that didn't recommend a particular yeast.andypantz13 said:AHS has a kit for it. I've been thinking of getting it or the La Fin du Monde one.... I'm also getting tired of the $8 a pack.
Possibly because it calls for the Wyeast strain that isn't currently being made? And they just never put in something else? I dunno, that's the best I can come up with after 8 hours of physics homework.Evets said:Huh! I think that's the first AHS recipe I've seen that didn't recommend a particular yeast.
In some cases, you could do that, but the yeast that Unibroue uses to bottle carbonate and condition their beers is not the same super awesome yeast they use for the main fermentation. It's a more neutral yeast that doesn't have much unique character. You'd be sorely disappointed if you used it in an attempted Belgian style ale.sirsloop said:awesome!
As far as the yeast goes... can't I pour a couple of brewdogs and wash the yeast out of the bottom of the bottle with some freshly boiled sweet wort?
If you make a good-sized starter, you may not even need the lightbulb. When I brewed my trappist, I made a quart starter, and had a major blow-off and fermentation temps north of 74ºF, in a bathroom with ambient temp around 70ºF. You don't wanna go above 80ºF, and that could be pushing the envelope a bit too much. My trappist is plenty funky.sirsloop said:i'm gonna try out WLP570 Belgian Golden for the Trois Pistoles. I'm gonna try to get temps up to around 75-80°F for the log period to get it a bit funkier. Ambient is 70°F so I'm gonna try a 100W light bulb on the primary to heat things up a bit. I expect high alcohol content around 9-10% so a pretty tolerant yeast is required...
Let say that it's time for me too.. I live at about 30min from where it's brewed and I'm paying them about 13$ (CAD) the 6pack... Plus the awfull federal and provincial taxes (about 15%), and the bottles that I have to be refund...... decided its time to stop paying 8 bucks a 6 pack for them
