Very interested to see how this experiment with the S-Valve works out.

This is usually a 2.5 - 3 week beer. I'm hoping the s-valve knocks some time off. Also interested to see how the s-valve effects the yeast flavor profile. Should be interesting.

Been very curious to see what would happen with a kolsch yeast + pressurised ferment... definitely something I'd like to taste. Kolsch yeasts always taste a bit tomato'ey to me, would be curious as to whether it neutralises that profile at all.

Oops... I was brewing back to back batches and had both the carboy and spunding tank ready... Biere de Garde was done first and out of habit put it in the carboy and the Allagash yeast in the spunding tank. Oh well, we shall see how Allagash house yeast fares under pressure... just fine I suspect.

PS - I discovered that Allagash use a Wyeast as their house yeast.
