What yeast are you going to use for this?  A lager yeast?  What temp?  I'm also thinking of doing one of these.

I';m waiting on a pack of Wyeast california lager yeast. I'm planning on doing something like this with this yeast.

Anyone ever try this strain? 2112 I believe

S-05 of course ;)


Jake: would be interested to compare the difference there... planning on doing this with S-23 at proper lager-yeast temperatures too (my crawl space appears to fit the bill).

FWIW the difference between a cream ale and a light american lager is pretty much just the yeast.

I just made a steam beer today with it.  I doubt your gonna get a clean taste from this strain.  I tried some from the starter and it's got  flavor.  If you ferment in the 50's make a big starter.

This has to be the lightest colored beer I've ever made... I actually lost about a pint into my star-san container 'cause I couldn't tell when the star-san stopped and the beer started in the low light... We'll see how this goes.

If anyone wants flaked corn/toasted rice, let me know - I bought full bags of each so have more than I'll need in a year.

It does indeed look like a piss sample in the hydrometer flask.

If my piss is 1.050 I should start fermenting it and selling it as Beer(tm).
