Title: Belgian hybrids
Post by: sdixon on May 28, 2012, 10:14:17 PM
I'm starting a series of experiments to blend yeast strains. This first batch is a combination of US-05 and T-58 in the primary. Subsequent experiments will be single yeast in primary and a different single yeast in secondary. Additional variables will include additions of fermentables in secondary vs. no additional fermentables. I've been blending my beers from the tap, but now want to blend the fermentation.
