Any of you ever blend yeast strains? I'm about to embark on my first experience doing this, albeit by complete accident.
Was making a yeast starter in prep for a Saturday brew day this weekend. And to make a long story short I accidentally grabbed jars of different yeasts and threw them into the starter wort before I noticed (yes, I know I could simply throw the starter out and start all over, but where's the fun in that?).
I store my yeast in small jars and grabbed three to throw in the starter. Thought I was grabbing three WLP001s, but, because I can't be bothered to read my own labels, ended up with one WLP001 and two WLP300s.
Anyway, the plan was to brew up a simple amber ale this weekend, but I do have stuff to make a blonde ale. So my questions....
1) Which beer should I brew with this yeast combo?
2) Do you think one yeast will dominate the other in the finished product?
3) I hadn't really thought too much about blending yeasts before.....Any recommendations on other combos?
