Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Wyeast 2352 Munich Lager II
« on: February 28, 2012, 12:56:40 AM »
Hard to believe nobody has heard anything on this yeast strain. I'm very interested as well. Fingers are crossed hoping it is an the augustiner strain.!

How long would you say is the shelf life of a mason jar of slurry that has been sitting in the fridge? I've got a jar of WY2124 and another of one of their special strains that is probably 6-8 months old now. I'm thinking that it's probably too old to use. It doesn't look any different than when it fist settled, however, and I have not done a sniff test yet either.

Beer Recipes / Re: Apricot in an ale?
« on: April 13, 2010, 12:13:52 AM »
I brewed a APA this past fall with homegrown Cascade and Centennial hops (Cascade as the late addition and dry hop) and while I didn't add any fruit it had a major apricot aroma which was surprising but really nice.  I used US05 yeast, which is usually pretty clean so I don't think it was the yeast.  Anyway, from the way that beer tasted I would think at least the casacde or similar citrusy hops would work well.

Bayern Brewing makes some excellent beer!  I've been to the brewey several times, only on weekends however, and just got a few growlers filled. Defintely planning on scheduling a tour next time in Missoula though as I'd like to ask a bunch of questions.

Is that the Brewhouse Pub & Grille? 

Yes, it is the Brewhouse Pub and Grill in Helena! I'll have to try the Afterburner Burger next time I'm there.  Their Prime Rib is actually very good too and not a bad deal pricewise if I remember right. I think they are expanding which will hiopefully get there beers a little wider distribution. Even only an hour north here in Great Falls, you don't see their beers very much and I often forget about them. Their Yellowstone beer is a good Kolsch ale too if I recall.

Thanks for the suggestions. If you're ever in Helena MT, the Lewis and Clark Brewpub makes a great one!  My wife was just down there a few days ago and I tried to have her get the recipe, but her server wasn't able to come through. Got a growler of their IPA and Hefe though so I can't complain.

I've got a German Pils going on it right now.  Was drawn to the dry/crisp properties mentioned in the despription as well as it's suggested use for "Agressively hopped lagers".  Sounds very appropriate for a German Pils, but was also planning on re-usuing the yeast on a Vienna Lager and Maibock in upcoming brews.
