I'm using some Fermentis S-189 Swiss Lager dry yeast which comes highly recommended by Denny. It's kind of hard to find as it is not sold to homebrewers in the states but I found a place that must be splitting bricks of it. I'll post the results later.


That is very encouraging; if more, dependable dry lager yeasts were made available; I am sure it would increase the lager output for homebrewers. Keep us updated.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

Just wrapped up my saison brew session. My efficiency has been down to 65% my last 2 batches, need to fix that. Went from boiling to 60F in about 10min!
Bottled: NOTHING
Tap 1: EMPTY

I am making a starter, which I meant to do Weds. So now, I have to wait to brew.
is Drinking-Chocolate Stout, Root Beer Ale
is Conditioning-nothing

symptom: beer unusually pale and tasteless
flaw: glass is empty
action: get someone to fill your glass

Yesterday I brewed a batch of Happy Thanksgiving Charlie Brown Ale:

10 lbs. Golden Promise
8 oz. Crystal 150L
8 oz. Biscuit
4 oz. Chocolate malt (400L)

1 oz Nugget, 60 min.
1 oz Willamette, 5 min.

Safale US56 yeast.

Also you have to offer the kettle a football, then yank it away at the last second...

The S-189 makes a respectable pils, but it's even better for maltier stuff like bocks, etc.
Life begins at 60....1.060, that is!
