Title: Ale yeast wanted for the weekend.
Post by: Eoin on May 01, 2014, 09:13:27 PM
I need an ale yeast of some description for the weekend? I want a large amount to pitch at 55l, I want to overpitch so was hoping someone might have a litre or so of slurry? Preferably UK yeast. I can't find any of my demijohns to make a starter.

Although coming to think of it, I want to do a light ale... Don't want the colour influence from stout...

I might try the place in glasnevin for that. I'm a big fan of slurry cos it gets busy very fast.

I dumped a fine batch of Nottingham slurry today. Unfortunate timing.

I've some dry sachets if you don't get a better offer. I've limited availability over the weekend with travel and other obligations though.

Gervin Ale yeast is rebranded Notty, and a lot cheaper.

Yes, at this stage it's a case of getting any at all from a HBS.

His selection is very small, only Gervin and mauribrew ale. I had to get mauribrew as he didn't have enough Gervin for me.

You could blend yeasts. I've done it in the past with dry. Can't say I really noticedmuch of a difference.

I ended up getting Ale 514 from Mottly brew, then screwing it up by breaking my thermometer in it and then in the end Mark bailed me out with a few packs of Nottingham/Gervin, so I got there in the end, thanks all.
