I generally prefer my beer unadulterated


Same here. I like an occasional margarita at a Mexican place, and definitely good Scotch and good bourbon on occasion. But I like beer to be beer. Each his own.

It's not printed on the can. After my first experience, this is exactly what I did.

I got yeast sludge stuck to the lid and yeast sludge stuck to the bottom and little in suspension.  Swirling it does little.

Their instructions say to add wort to swirl it up after you pour it out.  Also to stir it with something.

The yeast seems to work fine.  The package sucks.


It must be a strain thing then, Joe. I've used their Rustic saison strain a few times as well as the kolsch strain once and haven't had these issues, since neither drops very quickly. Since some other strains tend to drop and cake more easily than these, sounds like they need to retool their packaging.

I've had pretty good luck so far with their yeast, and like the strains I've used. I don't remembering the company's directions being written on the can, so I looked it up on their site - it says to turn the can upside down in the fridge the night before use. At pitching, invert the can back upright and GENTLY crack the pull tab to fully vent any pressure (like you would a can of soda that got shaken). After opening, swirl the can to bring the yeast all into suspension, and dump.
Hopefully this is of some help in the future. If it's not printed on the can, it really should be.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Yeast Fermentation Temp
« on: July 10, 2017, 04:20:54 PM »
Same here, Denny. And FWIW I like 1450 around 62-64F. As for Belgian strains for example, I feel like they miss on their temp recommendations. The first 2 or 3 days @ 63-64F before raising temp makes beer a lot more like the famous Belgian examples IMO. Too warm with those strains and it's easy to get an ester/phenol bomb. Too warm and foam is affected negatively as well.

German Pilsner loosely inspired by Sierra Nevada Summerfest.

3 gallons - 1051 OG
45.5% Barke Pils
45.5% Rahr 2-row
9% Bohemian Dark (Munich)
28 IBU Magnum @ 60
0.25 oz Tettnang @ 1
0.25 oz Hallertau Mitt @ 1
0.25 oz Tettnang @ 0
0.25 oz Hallertau Mitt @ 0
M76 Bavarian Lager Slurry

This is my second low oxygen batch. Things went a little easier today. I went with 27ppm SMB + Brewtan-B this time.


Sounds good! I'll be curious to see what you think.

Helles on Sunday. Going with 56 Barke pils/40 Weyermann Pale/4 Carahell. 18 IBU Mitt, 2206. Like the Marzen I have spunding , it's going toward my O-fest party. Pils or Helles Export/Dort next weekend.


Two German lagers in two weeks, a couple more to go. Love it when I hit all my numbers!
