Fermentum Mobile yeasts

Post by guypettigrew » Mon May 06, 2019 3:26 pm

Anyone tried these yet? The Malt Miller has started doing them and is offering them at a attractive discount.

I've just got a starter going with the FM11 'Heathery Heights' version. Supposedly good for standard English style bitters. Expecting to brew in three days.

Looks like you'll need a starter.
I'm just here for the beer.

I’ve not tried them, I have a few slants from brewlab which look similar

Quick update; the starter got going really quickly and activity was over at about the 36 hour point.

Once in the wort, bubbles began coming through the blow off tube after about 4 1/2 hours. Now, 24 hours later, it's going like the clappers. Blow off bucket full of overflow.

Just off to open the fermenter and top crop the yeast ready for next time.

So, all is well so far. Now have to wait and see what the beer tastes like.
