To follow up - I just checked in today. Krausen dropped and it's at the targeted final gravity (1.045-1.011) 4.5 days from pitch at 48f.[/equote]That sounds pretty quick, large pitch?
I like 2000. It's very soft and malty but you can work the water and hops to impart crispness.
I had to check back in my records, but the beer I made for the PU competition used 860 Helles. It turned out really well.
WY 2000 is nice. I like the Budvar beer. The only one I did not like was WY 2278.Happy brewing.
