"Shady Bohemian" -- Czech dark lager
Interestingly, I did the same last year with yeast from a Chimay Abbey Ale (750 ml) bottle, but I tried twice with Ommegang and also with Duvel 750s (same parent company, Moortgat), and couldn't duplicate it - I think they use a different yeast to bottle than they do in primary.Slow down a bit. You harvested yeast from a commercial beer and brewed with it? Can you tell em how did you do it?
Im going on my 3rd Hefe too, this one is pils, wheat and melanoidin. Trying to keep it simple and fermented at 75F
Damn, that took off! Started at 1.066 ( A bit higher than anticipated) and after 3 days its 1.010! One pack of 34/70 under25 psi.Gonna do my first Italian pils tomorrow. Under pressure because I don't have controlled temp . My first 3 attempts at a lager with pressurized fermentation have worked out well. Expecting the same.
