Anybody used it? I have been using US-05 for majority of my Ales - How does this one compare?
It's definitely a slow starter........but gets the job done once its up and away.felten said:I followed the mr. malty pitching rate. It had a very slow start, around 36-48hrs before I saw any activity. Which was worrying, but spot on with a lot of the reports I've read on various forums.
It then went from 1.048 to 1.010 in about 5-7 days, tasted brilliant out of the FV, haven't tried it carbonated yet.
I have experienced this similar conditions with yeast. Once it got going it blew the top of my coopers flash fang-dangle fermenter. It is certainly a more aggressive fermenter than Nottingham( which is become the normal yeast I use). It has about 1 or 2 days to go before I smash this brew into a keg. Fermenting at 18 degreesRowy said:It's definitely a slow starter........but gets the job done once its up and away.
Rehydrate as per instructions (I like Danstar's small pack instructions - except for the picture of an open beaker) in 1L flask, pitch to 3L starter.carniebrew said:Interesting you do a starter for it Bizier, unusual for a dry yeast. Do you re-hydrate first, then pitch that into the starter?
