Red Solo cups for me, please. They attract good looking women.
This!! But only after 7,8,9.... beers.

154 is a good mash temp for a beer that uses 1469, but I tend to mash a little higher as this yeast always attenuates like a beast for me, and I like my beer a little less dry. I also tend to ferment in the lower 60s, between 60 and 64. Otherwise, Wyeast's description is quite accurate, and it makes a very tasty mild.
edit* Oh, looks like hokerer and I had the same thought at the same time. Sorry for the redundancy!
Don't be sorry. You know, "great minds" and all that
hydrometer reading was 1.06 after I cooled the wort. added two slap-packs of london 1028 (expected a higher OG) to the wort @ 85 degrees, left the fermenter in a 70 degree room.
I used it with a scottish 80 and the karusen was a good 3-4" thick. I used that yeast cake on a wee heavy and the krausen blew through 1.25 gallons of headspace (and the airlock of course). I had to use a blow off tube for at least 2 days. You should be seeing a nice krausen.
I just made a Scotch ale about 4 days ago with OG=1.088. Fermentation temperature is about 60 F. I pitched a 20-oz starter in 3 gallons, and fermentation started up within 12 hours, then it had a huge krausen for about 2 days, and now it's already fallen back in. Time to check the gravity -- this might be a really fast yeast, I'm not sure. Sure seems like it. Is it possible that it's already finished fermentation for you when you weren't looking? Check the gravity, that's the only way to know for sure.
Yup, agree. Someone gave me 10lbs. of golden promise, so I need to find something to make with it. Got any ideas?One thing I would suggest for a Pilsner: use Pilsner malt
Dig the crowns when they are dormant, but you need to make sure the ground is thawed too. Mark them so you'll remember where they are.
And don't move the whole thing, just hack off a good chunk, I wouldn't go with anything bigger than 12" in any direction.
If the person giving is hopeing to get rid of the hops by letting you take them they have a nasty suprise coming next spring. Hops are almost as hard as horseradish to really get rid of. just one little piece of rhyzome left will regenerate into the same of monster after a few years.
