Chunks/solids in Wyeast?
« on: May 28, 2010, 02:40:31 PM »
I poured my Wyeast 2206 into the starter, and out came a few solids/chunks?  This is a first for me.  Anything to be concerned with?

Nope. Don't be surprised if you see it in the starter as well.

Try 1968 if you wanna see chunks

Looks like an iced coffee gone bad

Thanks for making me feel better about the chunky 1968 yeast in my starter. I'm brewing a brown shugga clone and am a little nervous about my first big beer (1.102 OG).

That sounds great!
