Yeast and Fermentation / Bought the wrong yeast...
« on: March 19, 2011, 03:03:53 PM »
So I'm trying my hand at making my own Northern English Brown Ale recipe and forgot to write down the Wyeast # before I left for the LHBS. They only had White Labs and by mistake I said "English Ale Yeast" instead of "London Ale Yeast".

So instead of getting Wyeast 1028/WhiteLabs WLP013 I got WhiteLabs WLP002. Is this going to make a huge difference in the style profile? Its a 40min 1-way trip to the LHBS, should I bring it back and get the WLP013?

Any info appreciated.

Thanks!
Tony

will the chemicals in the pressure-treated wood have any effect on the hops?

I recently upgraded my equipment and bought a complete kit from William's, this 32qt kettle was in the kit, I'm very happy with it. The valve is great for transferring wort without having to lift that sucker when its pretty full. Just something to consider.

What about that time you got caught naked with a bowl of jello?

Was it a dream where you see yourself standing in sort of sun-god robes on a pyramid with a thousand naked women screaming and throwing little pickles at you?

You are chris knight, arent you? I hope, so I'm wearing his underwear.

99 subie outback 30th anniv edition, never had to do more than typical maintenance (oil, filters, tires, etc). Its ok on gas but its def the best purchase i've ever made, $10k in 2003. I'd have to go look at the mileage but its def over 100k. If you're looking for another used car a Subaru should be near the top of the list imo.

Here's a pict of my baby playin in the snow:

Space beer reaches final frontier

"An Australian brewing company has, for the first time, manufactured a space beer. As in, a beer that can actually be consumed in space! This is most certainly one giant leap for beer affectionados."

Nice job! It really looks good. How far apart are the taps (on center)? They look a little close together once the tap handles are on.

Ah ok, so if i let both sit for a few minutes and reach the same temp then the flavors, etc would be the same?

The bottles weren't fully carbonated when you put them in the fridge.  The lower temps slowed down or stopped the yeast from consuming the remaining priming sugar.  So they're less carbonated and have less head.  The higher carbonation level in the garage ones are affecting your perception of the flavor, making it "pop" more.

Gotcha, so should I wait 2 weeks at room temp before putting in the fridge or 1 week room temp then 1 week at garage temp, then fridge?
