NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL HIGH KRAUSEN!

By: Dan Cook | Date: Mar., 3rd 2015 | Beer(s) Brewed: 8B. Special/Best/Premium Bitter

 

You can see from this picture of my 4L starter flask how far up the flask this yeast strain went at peak fermentation / high krausen. This while sitting on just 2L of starter. I had earlier turned off the stir plate in order to gauge the nature and vigor of this yeast. I've had other yeasts blow right out the top of this flask before but that's usually when sitting on 3L or more of starter.

This yeast strain smells wonderful and I'm looking forward to pitching it this weekend.

 

PERFECT STRAIN(PART II)

By: Paul Conlon | Date: Mar., 1st 2014 | Beer(s) Brewed:Southern Brown, Pub ale, Wheat Stout, 8 Malt

 

Since my last comment I have used this yeast for four different brews...Pub Ale, Wheat Stout, Southern Brown Malt as well as another batch of Essex 8 Malt described earlier. Since it is not available year-round, I've had to harvest the yeast and use a starter for the next batch. This yeast is excellent from start to finish and reconstitutes readily. I love how it brings out the flavors of the malts used, and provides a nice dry finish.

I did not harvest yeast from my last since it was the fifth generation...plus the White Labs website said it would be available again soon. As of yet it has not appeared on my suppliers website....yikes.... I hope they get it soon or else I'll be without one of my favorite yeasts until next year....heaven forbid.

 

THIS LIMITED EDITION STRAIN SOUNDED PERFECT

By: Paul Conlon | Date: Jun., 14th 2012 | Beer(s) Brewed: Essex 8 Malt

 

This Limited Edition strain sounded perfect for a brew I've been toying with for some time. Maris Otter & 7 other malts +Target & Fuggle hops to produce a dark English Ale. I haven't used a yeast which produced so much on the top during primary fermentation, but "carried on" with my usual 2 weeks in secondary & 3 weeks in bottles. This yeast does bring out all the flavors you put into your mash...for me the Maris, Aromatic, Victory came out very pronounced while the Brown & Debittered Black gave the color I was looking for... a dark, full bodied brew with the malty biscuity taste. Like most, I wish this strain was available year- round...but perhaps it's limited availability makes it what makes it so special.
