I have heard of yeasts having killer properties towards other different strains.
Im shortly about to put a 2 canner on.. one coopers bitter plus one draught
also add 1kg dextrose, plus some cascade hops, for about 25 lt total.

Would the draught and bitter yeast be the same?


Any help appreciated :beerbang:

In all likelihood, yes.

the draught isnt a lager yeast is it?
as for the cans, id go bitter and real ale. and probably 1kg extract if you can. but hey, its your brew. enjoy.

Andy,
Too much dried yeast can haved a flavour of its own.
Just use one.
cheers

I thought a single sachet would be underpitching?

Ah Kai,
You buggered it up. Thought I would get all of the posts.8)
Anyhow, all home brewers underpitch to a degree. One pack, two packs isn't a logarithmic change in rate.
Won't make a difference in a two-can brew.
cheers

Having written that, if it was a lager fermented at 10 degrees, yes it would be under pitching
