Title: DT Yeast Observation
Post by: ndcube on June 22, 2010, 06:22:02 am
Anybody else notice that this yeast is a low foamer?

I cultured some up and have a batch of DT fermenting right now and I can see the surface of the beer except for a few patches of krausen.  It's almost like a wine yeast.

Maybe I cultured up something wild but I don't think so, the fermentation is very active and as part of the culturing I made a low gravity ale with it and it tastes good.

Or maybe it's because the recipe is 15% sugar and I mashed the sh1t out of it.

Cultured from a bottle of DT?

Cool. What temperature are you fermenting at?

Pitched at 62F.  Trying to keep it around 66F for a few days then I'll let it do whatever it wants which will probably be 68-70F.
