    What Is This Yeast?

    Haha, thanks all. I will definately try it on the popcorn. Good to know this before I tried to brew with it. At least it didn't set me back much.

    What Is This Yeast?

    I bought some yeast from a health food shop in Bendigo, and all it says is "Brewer's Yeast" on the label. It has no brand (it's just a white label with nutrition info) anyhow, it only cost a couple of bucks, and I was just wondering if I could use it in a brew and what kind of tolerence it will...

    Vanilla Toffee Cream Ale

    Vanilla Toffee Cream Ale

    K so I mash the first four, then when I boil the wort, I add the lactose and the boiled down LME, then add the bitter after 60mins, cool down, then pitch yeast? what is the difference between 40L and 80L crystal grain?

    Vanilla Toffee Cream Ale

    Yeah the guy intended it to be sweet, he made it with a creamy soda flavour in mind. In his taste test, he wrote that it wasn't too cloying (what ever that means)

My grapho friend designed me a label. as for each individual name...
