Biere De Garde..................Wyeast 1762?

(1/2) > >>

babalu87:
Making the beers for my Aunts annual 4th of July party.
One I have chosen is a Biere De Garde, has anyone brewed this with 1762 (or similar)

I see its recommended on Wyeasts website but not mention in Farmhouse Ales at all?

denny:
BdG should use a clean yeast.  Keep in mind that it's a French beer, not a Belgian.  I've used WY1728, 1056, and even a lager yeast (forget which) to make BdG.  Using 1762 is gonna be too estery, IMO.  Although, since it's kind of an "invented" style, there's probably some latitude in what you can use.

babalu87:
I used 1762 for a Westy-ish clone (I know I know wrong yeast but the profiles are pretty similar at given temps)
Added fresh wort to the jug the starter was fermented in so I have a nice little cake of yeast ready to step up and read that Wyeast lists it for a Biere De Garde.

Maybe I'll make 10 gallons and split the yeast with US-05 and see what one I like best.......more beer cant really be anything but win right  :P
One for the party and one will be for me.

Yeah, but they also list 1450 for fruit beers!  ;)
