Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Yeast pitching for a high OG noob

Wow!  Thanks for the pearls of homebrewing wisdom, everyone. 

Denny, I think I'll be making a starter with the next batch and pitching at lower temps from now on. ;)

I'm having so much fun, feeling adventurous, and loving the new forum!

We pitched at about 75-76, I think.  I followed the instructions on the yeast packet.

Thanks for your knowledge!  Maybe I got a little slap happy with trying to get our ABV up.  But, it sounds like all is not lost. :-)

Yeast and Fermentation / Yeast pitching for a high OG noob
« on: November 19, 2009, 07:11:38 PM »
1. Yesterday I brewed a high OG Tripel (1.098) with a target FG of 1.014. I pitched (1) 100 billion cell packet of Wyeast 1388 Belgian Strong Ale. Fermentation started within 6 hrs, but I am wondering if the amount of yeast is enough for that high of an OG?  Should I add more yeast, and when would I want to do that?

2. The fermentation temp is supposed to be at 79 degrees. I am using a carboy heater, and when I got home the wort was up to ~86 or slightly higher. It was possibly at this temp for about 4-6 hrs, maybe less. I have unplugged the heater and wrapped the carboy in a wet towel to bring down the temp.  Is this amount of time at a temperature that's higher than desirable enough to kill/stunt the yeast or produce any off flavors in the beer?
