Thanks all. I think I will either go 95/5 Pils, carahell or 90/5/5 pils, carahell, munich which I think may add just a bit of complexity.

Any advice on hop additions? Just bittering?
I say keep it simple and dont mess with to many variables. i have made many a hells with just pils and maybe 10% vienna and bitter gently 20ibus maybe. mash lowya want it poundable finish below 1.11. but thats my preference.  go for it. hope my spelling and vocab is ok just had my 2nd brain surgery in 2 years and trying to interact with technology :) Cancer sucks. good luck boss

I will home brew until they pry the mash paddle from my cold dead hands....

Love it:) this may literally be the case for me.  i still find time and love all aspects of Homebrewing even though i have had a lime sized cancerous brain tumor removed Oct of last year. Homebrewing is living in my book and have brewed my share since that date:)

Went with 100% Schill Pilsner and imperial g03 dieter which is supposed to be the same as wlp029. I was preferring 2565 but now I find myself liking 029 better. Will be using a portion of the yeast cake for an imperial kolsch which I assume will come off similar to a Helles bock.

I've bounced around between both and preferred the WLP029 for most of that time as well. It seemed to have more of that "white wine" characteristic. I use WYEAST though almost exclusively for my yeast now though so haven't used that strain in a couple years.

Havent used the WLP029 yet however have been playing with BSI W-177, Kolsch. Interesting yeast puts off a shizz ton of sulfur at 60F. BSI fellas recommend that temp and dont suggest above 65F. I have done both and cant tell a difference. still lots of sulfur. takes a while to condition out. using Hull Melon also and havent made my mind up about it. It's just different. Think i am a classic Hersbrucker guy. Have messed with Mandarina Bavaria also and dig it as a flavor addition. I do like about 75/25% pils/Kolsch malt.

Yeast and Fermentation / Lactobacillius b slurry storage?
« on: June 07, 2016, 11:44:32 PM »
Any suggestions on a healthy pitch of Wyeast 5335 slurry storage. it's in a mason jar with wort of PH at 3.5 in the fridge. Just thought i remember reading once that its not ideal to store yeast of this nature under such low PH range.

First and foremost, glad to hear you are here to tell your tale. Sending good juju out your way.

Secondly, I will be very interested to hear your results. Are you going to brew warm, cool, or both? It would make for an interesting split batch.

Split batch for sure one at 55F and one at 60F maybe even higher 64F.  Brewing science recommended not to go above 65F.

Try this resource next time. Understanding off flavors with sours helps refine your process or it has with mine.

Finally get to try this yeast:) local brewery giving me some slurry next week cant wait!   This will be my first brew since last October:( have been fighting a lime size Glioblastoma/brain tumor/Cancer with surgical removal. Still able to wipe my own butt and work so i am doing well:) back to the joyful things in life.
the classic strain used for the production of Kölsch beers, with a light fruity estery taste and character with
lower Amyl alcohol contents. Similar to the alt beer yeasts this yeast strain can
be fermented with high or low temperatures. The Diacetyl degradation is, especially by
higher temperatures than 20 °C as good as complete

How do you know they have the equivalent to the conan strain? is it because of the comparable descriptions one can determine that?

It wasn't all the way frozen just a moderate slush so I just racked the beer off into keg. It was only 3 gallons

General Homebrew Discussion / Frozen Belgian blonde
« on: September 12, 2015, 02:08:23 PM »


Never had this happen before. Had to crash an IPA of which my Belgian blonde was at 30F set the IPA car boy in the freezer with prob attached to the side of it and it dropped the temp of the blonde to low:(. It was only there for 24 hrs. Blonde taste fine. I would expect it to bump up the alcohol? But the FG gravity stayed the same
