I will be bringing 2 slants of the 1214 to the meeting. Thomas should check to make sure I did it properly before people brew with it. Basically I just washed and sanitized the Activator 1214 Pack, and then dumped some into a couple of slants and shook. I could not find the "thingy" Thomas used to streak the yeast on the slant, so I just shook it. If it doesn't work, I'll bring some of the yeast cake in a mason jar

This was my attempt to clone the Chimay Red. Clearly, the choice of American hops is implausible for the real deal, but my knowledge of hop nuance for the American is much more rigorous than for the Noble varieties.

I did, however, not just add random hops. I chose Galena to give it a clean bitterness, and Challenger since its spicyness reminds me of Chimay hoppage. And the Saaz, you can't go wrong with Saaz.

All in all, this looks, smells, and tastes quite a bit like the actual Chimay Red: Success!
