Re: Experiences with WLP002/Wyeast 1968?

I find with both the AA and flavour are very pitch rate dependent. High pitching rates can give quite a clean flavour on the 002. The 1968 is harder to produce a cleaner flavour.... Not that this is the reason why you use these yeasts.

Re: Experiences with WLP002/Wyeast 1968?

Just done two beers with the wyeast variety, having used the whitelabs version several times before. The AA has always been 70 ish. Even with an all pale brew. The two yeasts don't seem to behave the same. The 002 seems to drop fast and pack hard, especially once its been reused. The krausen is fluf...

Re: Is there an ideal sparge rate?

That would work out around 1.5 to 2 l/m.

Re: Is there an ideal sparge rate?

I tend to mash for 60, recirc - still mashing for 30 mins and then sparge 30 mins on the fly. I get 80%+ eff by this, and beautifully clear run off too.

Re: Jims ESB

Just put mine on late. Nice colour, around 50 ebc, and 25 IBUs all from home grown fuggles. Like many, I have used a Fullers yeast.

It should have been a 1042, but due to new techniques I hit 1050. Fermenting at 18c for 3 weeks.

Re: Hot-break driving me demented!

Well I for one didn't think you would get break material in DME or LME. I would have thought it was removed during the manufacture.

Re: Pilsner Urquell recipe

Very interesting Aleman. Do you use the same approach for the slightly darker lagers too? (ocktoberfest, marzen type)
