Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Favorite lager strain?
« on: December 31, 2013, 12:57:29 PM »
Outside of S-23 dry yeast, I can't think of any lager yeast I dislike, as long as its fermented around 50°F.

Someone needs to do a shout out for WY2308 Munich.  A great yeast for bock beer.  I love the way its stinks up the whole basement, but the finished beer tastes so good.

I had intended to do a split batch on a Helles with WL830 and WY2308. Both my sources were cleaned out of the 2308 so were rolling with the 830.  Pondering pitching a bigger darker wort on the yeast cake. 
Any recommendations?

Doppelbock or Baltic Porter would be my choices.

Yeah, I've got some glass carboys (carboiai?) but I only use them for sours at this point so no picking up or shaking for me.

I really like the 833 for malty styles, but I'll tell ya, 830 works for everything in a pinch.  I used it exclusively this year for all styles of lager that I brew (Ofest, Dunkel, Pils, doppelbock, and Baltic Porter).

Next up is an American Black Ale, but not on New Years Day, hopefully next weekend.  After that is a double batch of Lambic.

I got all geared up to brew and then turned the water to the brewery back on after our recent freezing spell.  Looks like I'm gonna have to be a plumber before I can be a brewer.

I hate when that happens!  Good luck Denny!  I may fit one more in the weekend after Christmas.  That will be the beginning of my Lambic experiment.

I am drinking an Alt right now that I used 34/70. Tastes excellent! I will sprinkel 1 pack without rehydration without any fear. I have also fermented this yeast at 66 degrees. To my knowledge people on this site have said that this is the same strain as WLP830. If this is true why buy the liquid?

Because my LHBS charges $8 for one sachet.

Started drinking mine last weekend.  This style of beer really shows the difference between malty and sweet.  The malt is very up front, but the sweetness is moderate and the finish is somewhat dry.  The malt flavor continues through the finish.  I like this style!
