Kegged an APA tonight. Funny, I hadn't brewed a full batch APA in a year though I do 1 gallon APAs to try out hops fairly regularly. But I loved Mandarina and did a 5 gallon APA with it, and recently used Azacca/Cascade in 5 gallons, the one kegged tonight. Gonna do either a German pils with all Best malz (and 2124) or an all whirlpool Kiwanda style cream ale tomorrow, the other next weekend. That should give the pale warm weather beers a good start.Oooh Cape Kiwanda is awesome!
Precisely what I wanted to know - and I knew you would know it.Some day I want to do a hybrid with it just to see how low it will go. Im betting on 45º with no problems. But I'll also bet I'll need to ramp it up towards the middle to keep it from stalling.
I've brewed several beers with 1728, from small Scottish to big, to APAs and IPAs. Its a great clean fermenter at cool temps. My suggestion is for really clean with it is to stay in the 50-60º range for the first week or so. Be careful not to go up and down in temp because a drop could make it go dormant (stalled). Once its about 75% done you can ramp it up to 68-70 with no problemsThanks for all the information guys!I only mention it cuz ya never know.
Anyway, im a beleiver in slow steady ramping up in temp. And it depends on gravity and strain. My lagers are around 1.050-1.060 and I start with wort at 48º and controller at 50º. I walk it up one degree per day to 68º. So, after a full week its still only at 57. No harm there. No diacetyle or stalled fermentation issues either. My medium strength ales usually start chilly, about 60º for a few days, then I do the one degree per day routine up to about 70.
On bigger beers I give it more time on the cool end.
Agreed. He was looking for info to compare. It would've been more help to be extra specific.
So, Jim , I have 2 five gallon Scotty's just brewed yesterday - starting gravity at 1.044 - using 1728. Chilled to 52 or so and pitched, then left in the garage overnight in about mid 50's temp and put in water baths in the basement today at mid to upper 50's and allowing a slow rise to mid 60's over the next few days (water changes as needed). Does 1728 like to finish warmer than that?
I am shooting for a clean profile - and I intend to use this yeast over the rest of this year as a standard ale yeast along with 1450. My lagers are locked on Omega Y-06 and WLP 802 presently.....
