If any of you used Wyeast #2206 (Bavarian Lager) recently and had infection problems, please contact me. I believe that a packet I used recently (December 1989 date code) was bad, but I would like more evidence. It was a very serious bacterial infection which produced a strong sulphery oder, much like 2-tube epoxy glue. (Yuck!) Luckily, I noticed the infection in the yeast starter *before* I pitched it into my hard-won wort, so I was able to keep from ruining my brew. - John Polstra jdp at polstra.UUCP Polstra & Co., Inc. ...{uunet,sun}!practic!polstra!jdp Seattle, WA (206) 932-6482 Return to table of contents

Narrated by Michael Jackson, it's much like his book, The World Guide to Beer. Excellent program, informative, humourous, and picturesque. My mole gave me a edit-preview video, and says he expects it to air on the Discover Channel in about three weeks. Watch for it! _______________________________________________________________________________ Internet: chris at asylum.gsfc.nasa.gov ( NASA/GSFC: Code 735 UUCP: ...!uunet!asylum.gsfc.nasa.gov!chris Greenbelt, MD 20771 SPAN: PITCH::CHRIS (DECNET) 301-286-6093 Return to table of contents
