    Hi Brewers,
    It's Wyeast order time again. Seems to come around very quickly.

    If there is anything special you need, or just want to get some yeast ordered directly from the states for you, now is the time to let me know.

    The order will be placed next week.


    Cheers Steve

    Hi Milky,
    It's a new location. Mark's old place closed. I am at Brandy Hill now. So you can pick up or I can deliver at a very reasonable rate.

    Brewman June Special.

    Special - Budget Saison, while stocks last – free yeast.

    I have put together a BrewBuilder Budget Saison recipe for June.
    Order this through BrewBuilder in June, or while stocks last, and the Lallemand Belle Saison yeast is free. One satchel per standard 23 - 25L batch.
    The recipe is on the very top of the “Brewman’s List”, and named “BrewBuilder Special Saison”. When you order the recipe, the cost of the yeast will be included, however, when you receive the order confirmation the yeast price will be deducted.

    Wyeasts
    The order goes in on Sunday, so let me know if you want anything specific.

    The Wyeast Private collection is the same this month, and is the final month for that season. See below for the details. New PC next month.

    [SIZE=16pt]Wyeast Private Collection.[/SIZE]


    FUNKY SPRING – Yep I know it’s Winter here now.
    AVAILABLE FROM APRIL THROUGH JUNE 2015

    Wyeast 3191-PC Berliner Weisse Blend™

    Beer Styles: Berliner Weisse, Lambics, Geuze, Fruit Lambic, Flanders Red Ale
    Profile: This blend includes a German ale strain with low ester formation and a dry, crisp finish. The Lactobacillus included produces moderate levels of acidity. The unique Brettanomyces strain imparts a critical earthy characteristic that is indicative of a true Berliner Weisse. When this blend is used, expect a slow start to fermentation as the yeast and bacteria in the blend is balanced to allow proper acid production. It generally requires 3-6 months of aging to fully develop flavor characteristics. Use this blend with worts containing extremely low hopping rates.

    Alc. Tolerance 6% ABV
    Flocculation low
    Attenuation 73-77%
    Temp. Range 68-72°F (20-22°C)

    Wyeast 3538-PC Leuven Pale Ale™

    Beer Styles: Belgian Pale Ale, Belgian Dubbel and Tripel, Belgian Strong Golden and Dark Ales, Belgian Blonde Ale, Flanders Brown Ale
    Profile: This vigorous top fermenting Belgian style strain produces a distinct spicy character along with mild esters. Phenolics developed during fermentation may dissipate with conditioning. 3538 is an excellent choice for a wide variety of Belgian beer styles.

    Alc. Tolerance 12% ABV
    Flocculation high
    Attenuation 75-78%
    Temp. Range 65-80°F (18-27°C)

    Wyeast 5151-PC Brettanomyces claussenii™

    Beer Styles: Old Ale, Historic Porters & Milds, Foreign Extra Stout, Wild & Sour Ales, Fruit Lambic, Flemish Red Ale, Belgian Specialty Ales
    Profile: Notes of tropical fruit, pineapple and, to a lesser extent, peach and blueberry round out a classic Brett profile. Produces “horse blanket,” leathery, and smoky character, but at lower level than other Brett strains. Can be used as the primary strain for fermenting, but is often used after a primary fermentation with an S. cerevisiae strain, and in blends to produce sour beers. It is highly attenuative, given proper time to fully ferment out, and is known to create a pellicle during fermentation.

    Alc. Tolerance 12% ABV
    Flocculation low
    Attenuation 80%+
    Temp. Range 65-80°F (18-27°C)

    Giving the 3538 a run tonight on a simcoe/mosaic pale, cube hop of a combined 90g, so fairly muted, I don't plan on adding any dry Hops through ferment.

    Love trying new yeasts, thanks man.

    Should say too, interesting packaging, the ice packs were still cold though so great work there.

    Hi Yob,

    Hope it turns out well for you, be interested to know how it goes? Did you create a starter or pitch directly from the smack pack?

    The packaging. Well that was a first I must say. It looked like a good idea at 6am in the morning when I got it out of the fridge, but saying that there was a fair bit of thought leading into doing it that way, and a few other things I tried before then which I was not happy with for one reason or another. Sending these interstate has a few challenges, so stoked it worked.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    For those brewers that pre-ordered Wyeast.

    They arrived from the US today and I just unpacked them, they are all ready to go.

    Cheers and enjoy fresh Wyeasts.

    I forgot to mention that New Zealand Nelson Sauvin was back in too.

    Time to start thinking about the next Wyeast order. There will be a new set of Private Collection in July, details soon.

    Ordered a few Wyeast packs earlier, Brewman.

    You were the only site sponsor with the Mead, Lager and Ale yeasts I wanted.

    Cheers, Dan

    Hey Steve,
    Yeah I'm really happy with the wash powder too. Great for the really dirty hard to move stuff, and a lot safer than caustic.


    Yeast Order is about to be sent.

    Cheers Steve

    Agree about the wash powder. Finally got to use my sample earlier this week. Does a great job, better than napisan. Will include some in my next order.
