They were fermenting like mad. You could see the bubbling. What should I do, besides dump it all in a nice glass jug, with w real cap. No preservatives in this stuff. How much sugar and/or champagne yeast? Return to table of contents

It is true as jay h points out that traffic has been down of late (the net too, of course). In my case, I've been slow about hauling the carboys out of summer storage, and am now kicking myself for having put things off too long. This year, I want to make a concerted push towards greatly improved beer. I have little time this year to brew, and since my grad student buddies have, for the most part, fled New York, the $$ factor is less of a concern this year (i.e. I have neither the time, nor the motive, to make twenty gallon batches of drinkable, if funny tasting, fast ales in order to save money on my beer bill). The result is that I (as with so many american manufacturers these days) am making a flight to *quality* (pretty soon I'm going to be saying things like "competitiveness" or "good jobs at good wages"). Ergo: Have any of you tried Wyeast liquid yeasts? How much of an improvement have you noticed (if any)? Does the fact that the yeast may take 1-7 days to be ready for pitching cramp your style (I can't really brew on short notice)? Awaiting any and all responses. David Hyder Return to table of contents
