So then, no lack of crispness?  Did you make any compensations since you were using a dry yeast?
Guess I attribute crispness to the CO2.  But perhaps you are onto something there. I need to taste
it again.  I just pitched 2 packages of S-189 into a 5 gallon batch of wert that was at 1.065 O.G.
I secondaried in a SS Corny and it was REAL cold in the lager fridge.  It may have frozen not sure.
It did have some haze that I managed to clear up with polyclar. When I added the polyclar, I also cut
the finished beer with some distilled water to decrease the viscosity of the beer...lessen the gravity if you will.
Now the hop particles are settled out and it is good and clear.
Ok, Tasting again....nice and crisp. Maybe not as crisp as a tater chip but not bad. And, I am sure
it is the CO2 that makes that sensation on my palate.

Unfortunately you are not going to find a very good dry yeast for a German pils. S-189 will work "ok", but no where near as good as a good liquid yeast.
I am currently enjoying my 1st Pilsner brewed with this exact strain. S-189 it is so convenient to utilize and attain
the proper pitch rates.  I dry hopped the beer and have been lagering it about 4 months ....it is a really nice beer.
That yeast is prolly the reason, even tho this was the 1st time I built water from R.O. for brewing.

Not brewing for Nat'l Homebrew Day, BUT, I will be enjoying some
homebrew that has finally come of age...THE MAIBOCK....

Well, Barry since you never let me know how this was....I am making my own
just to try it out....mmmm....candied bacon (with cayenne).

AND I ain't tellin nuthin about it till you post how YOU like the stuff.

Are you in I....de....ho....yet?

2303
I'm about 15 minutes into the mash on a saison - finally going to try that 3711.
Well I give high marks for that yeast. It will prolly be my Saison goto yeast of choice
from now on...unless....they get a vss that I can't resist....I also liked 3726 only
the high temps were kind of appalling...but the end was yummo good.

Edit:changed 3724 to 3726....BIG difference. I did not care for the "sour apple" of 3724.
so to avoid this confusion in the future, it will be 3711 and I will like it!

Ok, the rochefort was off on the numbers a little I hit 1.070 and was trying for .060
whould be beer if the yeast can surmount the sugar. I gave it wyeast nutrient and
plenty of pure O2.... maybe it will ferment out good....dunno.

I am into the mash on a barleywine.  This will be a long brew day but I plan to get em
both into the fermenters.
 :-\

2305

Another user friendly thing would be this
a filter/sort mode  to glean out the author's own postings.

Well I have a couple ads up in "wanted to buy"  and wanted
to delete the ads cause they are no longer relevant.

I finally had to settle for the resolution of just changing words
in the posts to stuff like...."disregard".  I clicked every thing
on the page to try to find the erase icon and no luck.  I see
other people doing similar things.

This aspect is not the most user friendly thing....just sayin.
