Apologies if this posts twice as I'm on a plane and it doesn't seem like my first post made it.
Anyway, I brewed a quad with some Westvleteren yeast I propagated from a bottle. It took the beer from 1.100 to 1.018 or about 12% ABV.
The other day I brewed a pale ale and could not find the US-05 I just bought so I tossed in the washed Westy yeast. No activity after 24 hours and I left for a trip and am now wondering how it is doing.
Which led me to is the thought of yeast being "tired" after a big brew fact or fiction? What say the forum?
And what do you think happened to my pale ale. Winner gets a beer.......
