Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Liquid Yeast by Mail Now?
« Last post by Stevie on July 22, 2016, 04:07:19 PM »
I just got some in today. Some Imperial Rustic, and 3711. Can't get either locally.  Two day transit, payed for ice, arrived slightly cool. For sure will make a starter for the 3711 even though I absolutely hate making starters.

Can get 3711 about 40 minutes away, but that's not happening.

I waited 5 business days for shipment.  Worked for me though.  It was mid 90s those days.  Low 80s the days they shipped.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: carbonating keg in 48 hours

Agreed that 30-35 psi for 48 hrs (providing your beer is cold enough) should get you carbed enough.

Don't like Maris Otter or Golden Promise even?  If not, maybe a blend of vienna and Maris Otter?

I feel like they used to ship much faster, but recently I don't even get my order by Friday if I order it the previous Sunday and I am only 2-3 days UPS ship at most. They must just be experiencing a high volume.  Good for them!
Their customer service is still awesome.

Beer Recipes / Re: first saison

Pale yellow color is perfect for a summer saison and will pair well with the lemony theme. Also, once you get some carbonation into it, I bet the basil character will pop a bit more. Let us know how it turns. Sounds like it will be awesome late August.

Just finished brewing this. Hit my numbers which happens about 25% of the time or less so that is good. Went with the 90 minute mash at 148F so hoping that this sucker gets below 1.005 and hopefully 1.003.

I decided to go with 3/4 oz of centennial added with the lemon zest and basil at 5 min. The lemon/basil character seemed pretty mild in the sample so I am assuming it is not really going to carry through to the final product. I only went with 12 g of basil as it seemed like a lot so I wish I would have went with the full 1/2 oz. I may consider adding some more to the fermenter or just leaving it. Wishing I would have added another malt to provide some color which was probably suggested. It look like it is definitely going to be a pale yellow color.

Brewed my barley wine with the 1318 shipped 3 weeks ago.  I bet the yeast was 85 degrees when it arrived.  I made 2 1.5 liter starters.   The OG was 1.1 and looks like it's finished at 1.025.   The yeast survived.   The smack pack swelled to the maximum before pitching into the starter.  I am a 2 day transit from northern brewer.
