Yeast Swap - Conan for Weizen
« on: March 27, 2015, 09:09:45 AM »
Hey folks, I have some yeast saved from a Yeast Bay Vermont Ale (Conan) starter. It's about a week old.

Looking for 3068, 3463 or similar yeast for a weizen.

Sounds good... that shouldn't be a problem, eh @blisster ?

I think it would be fine, you will just have to take some time to step up the starter.

If you can wait a week, I ordered some from NG that came in within a few days, you could probably do the same if need be.

You might have to do a couple of step-up starters before pitching but I've never had a problem using old yeast (assuming it was kept refrigerated)....

Give a man a beer and he'll waste an hour, teach him how to brew beer and he'll waste a lifetime.

Hey Steve, I don't want to mess with your plans, so I can steal some from Rob. Thanks though!

Sorry I didn't explain myself. I'm brewing with the pack I have this weekend. I primary only unless aging a beer so I won't have it available for a few weeks. But if you could wait until next week NG may be able to get it in for you, it came in very quick for me.

Its no big deal, but I have several mason jars full of it.
