Wyeast Headwaters Ale
« on: January 15, 2011, 08:12:21 AM »
I just saw a Midwest tweet about a new, proprietary Wyeast strain: http://www.midwestsupplies.com/catalog/product/view/id/6139/.  Just a general description so far.  I'd like more information re. recommend temps, EtOH tolerance, and attenuation range on this one.  Anyone have any more info?
Primary: gotlandsdricke/alt/dunkel hybrid
Secondary: pale barleywine,
Bottled:  Gotlandsdricke
               Oatmeal/blackberry stout
               Honey Kolsch

Try emailing Wyeast for info.  They're generally very responsive.

Done.  Will pass along what I find out.
Edit:  Here's the info I got back from WYeast:

Attenuation: 73-77%
Flocculation: Medium
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 60-75°F
Alcohol Tolerance: 10%
