Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Mangrove Jack's Dry Yeast
« on: December 16, 2013, 04:51:40 PM »
My results have been more positive than most. I used the Workhorse in a Baltic porter Christmas Ale ... went from 1.065 to 1.023. That doesn't seem especially good, but there was cocoa nibs, cherrys and other stuff added to the secondary that affected the FG. Flavor and body is good. Also did a side-by-side, splitting 6 gals. of lager wort between rehydrated MJ Bohemian Pils and Fermentis S-189. Really didn't care for either, but went ahead and repitched the slurries ... Bo Pils into 5 gal of Bo Pils wort and S-189 into 5 gal of Vienna lager. Both came out much better. The Bo Pils especially is aging beautifully and is crystal clear. Confirms my previous experience with dry lager yeasts that the second pitch/generation is often better than the first (in spite of the warning not to repitch). No doubt, the massive yeast count from the slurry helps too.

After the first of the year it could have been a load of Bud-Light Platinum, their new 6% "light" beer.
