just on this, has anyone successfully blended these yeast on a home brew level to produce a cracker pilsner ?OK, off topic now, if they do ( i thought they used one, where is Gerard when you need him) then it's the H- strain, the D- strain and something else.
From what i can tell, 2001 is the H- strain which is also used by Gambrinus in the same complex. D- is 2278.
That article was from '97, so it'd be the old one. They have another brewery over in Poland I believe but we still get the stuff from Plzen
On topic, I have tried 2x packs of S-189 in a brew at about 18-20C, I didn't really like the result. It was a basic Pilsener I was trying to do, and it wasn't quite clean enough. But I didn't lager/CC it, which probably would have made a fair difference to the result.
http://www.aussiehomebrewer.com/forum/inde...showtopic=49743Ross is a much, much better brewer than I - so this is only worth the 2c it was printed on - but this is what I've found in my case.
Let me rephrase that, "Ross's employees are much, much better brewers than I - so this is only worth the 2c it was printed on - but this is what I've found in my case."
Grain and Grape have the 11.5g packets on their website.Bribie G said:Nice necro.
What happened to the individual sachets of S-189 that were supposed to be coming out?
You'll get some potentially unwanted esters but I have fermented a couple lagers at warmer temps (nothing over 18C) and they turned out nice.laxation said:What happens if you brew a lager yeast at warmer temps?
Nothing wrong with that mate, anyone who tells you otherwise can shove it.laxation said:I like cheap tap beers like VB & wouldn't mind making something similar (i dont care, shoot me - i like cheap beer)
My sister likes to rub it in my face while drinking $60 cases of beer paid for with disability ¯\_(ツ)_/¯mtb said:Nothing wrong with that mate, anyone who tells you otherwise can shove it.
Eh, I'll just sit quietly and let her drink what she wants...mtb said:Your best course re your sister is to one-up her with some brilliant home brews. If I manage to produce a cracker of an ale, my commercial craft beer-swilling friends often tell me they couldn't enjoy a bottle of commercial after having one of mine because it tastes like crap in comparison h34r:
