Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Belle Saison Dry Yeast
« on: September 29, 2013, 03:03:39 PM »
I will be using this yeast for a Saison this week and I'm concerned with fusel production.  I agree that an elevated fermentation temp is required to produce the esters and phenols that are characteristic of the yeast, but I've had far too many beers in judging that display fusel alcohols...much to the dismay of my head the next morning.  Many of those beers were not Belgians and the yeasts probably aren't suited to high temp.  But can this yeast be relied upon to avoid fusel production if fermented at 78 to 80 F? 

I'm going to have to heat my fermentation chamber to achieve that elevated temp, so its no problem to moderate the temp a bit.

I got good complex flavor results pitching at ~64 and letting it rise no higher than ~74. lots of lemon. some spice and funk, no fusels that I could detect (and I get wicked headaches from fusels)

Almost my exact method and almost my exact interpretation on flavor.

Well, the one I brewed turned out fair. One caveat is it was a contract brew and not my recipe. It seemed to have a lot of tropical fruits in the hop character and some other interesting hop flavors that I'm not sure how to describe. I should pop in the "brew pub" that I brewed it for and try it again as I didn't really spend very much time with it.

You can harvest the yeast but expect there to be a blend of strains, no telling what you'll get.

For future reference if your yeast is even kinda old you need toile a starter. Yeast is responsible for about 80% of beers flavor. Never skimp on it.

Even if he's using dry yeast?

Post sounded to me like he pitched two "bags" (smack packs) of 6 month old yeast. Starter not for dry yeast obviously. Or, if you meant harvesting dry yeast: there's no reason whatsoever you can't harvest slurry from dry yeast.

Yep. That's a cool idea, Professor. So cool I'm going to steal it! :D

The Pub / Fla Alcoholic Beverage license
« on: September 28, 2013, 12:55:19 PM »
My cousin in Tampa is interested in opening a Beer and Win bar. He emailed me and was asking about license options and from the looks of it you guys down there can't sell beer on premiss to be consumed at over 6.243% ABV - http://www.myfloridalicense.com/dbpr/abt/documents/LicenseSeriesTypesABT2004_table.pdf

Can anyone shed any light on this for me? Is that really the case?

I think it may age put very different from what you have now but hard to say for sure.

Denny, do you think this would also work as a hop/trub stopper at the drain inside of the kettle?  I need to do something about my system to keep things from clogging up when chilling.

Not sure of its the same braid but mine workmen in bl with whole hops, not pellets. Only had clog once in huge IIPA
