I would love to try it on system we could make batches in one mash so we could have 3 different hopping methods going. I w...

Biggest part of this book I liked was the recipes are in extract, minimash and all grain. I moved on f...

Re: Wyeast vs White Labs

I know what you mean about the limited supply of dry yeast strains, I asked one time about this and was told that a lot of the strains they offer for liquid packaged yeast would not hold up well to the drying process, I do not know if that is true or not. I used white labs for years, and thought it ...

Re: Whoops, screwed the pooch..Big Time

my experience with nottingham is that it is very aggressive and leaves less residual sugars than normal London yeast I have used it for some medium strong brews, up to about 7.5%. and it chewed right through it. Now over that, I usually finish off a brew with champagne yeast, such as my Heavy Scotch...

I am not saying I do not do ales, I do about half and half because there are many ale styles I like. But reading about FWHing it appears the sty...
