Re: Brewing alcohol free

Some time ago I heard that the big brewerys were involved with research into a new strain of yeast that can ferment a wort but not produce any alcohol. If such a yeast can become viable then the whole new world of beers that taste like beer with no alcohol would truly take hold. However try as I ha...

Re: Unusual cider

I did a three gallon batch: one gallon of opal juice, one gallon of honeycrisp juice, and one gallon of pink lady juice and S-05. Once fermentation was done I added a pound and a half of unsweetened dried coconut. I bottled at the three week mark with a couple of ounces of cane sugar. It came out ki...

I have one bottle left of an 18% cherry mead that I brewed 17 years ago. 😢
And one of an 18% raspberry mead that was brewed 15 years ago.

I like to use a variety of base grains depending on what style I'm brewing. How about you?

Re: One for laying down and avoiding

I made a standard bitter and dumped 500g of local honey in there to make around 11%. Google Braggot, it’s a medieval style that’s basically a mix of mead and beer, and it’s perfect for laying down for a long time. Wine yeast won’t finish a beer as it can only really handle simple sugars and it’s pr...

I know but for example WLP001 is supposed to be US05 so I was wondering if there is a liquid version of Windsor.
There are some differences between WLP001 and US05, as there are between the other yeast companies versions of the Chico strain.

Re: One for laying down and avoiding

Most yeasts can handle warmer, cooler, and higher gravity than what the yeast company selling them says. It depends a LOT on the wort.
I'd use a beer yeast like Wyeast 1056 before a wine yeast.
