Haven't used wyeast in years after the last time beating the shit out of it on the kitchen counter, any tips or experiences using this particular strain.

At least now I'm not the only one that can't seem to break the damn pack inside easily. Such a pita!

I was like a half shot duck flapping around the kitchen last time
Yep Nigel had it shipped from U.K., from Brewuk very well packed and came with cool pack

Bought some 1318 from BrewUK in December too, a nice fresh smack pack. Have it fermenting a NEIPA for the past week at 18 C. This strain supposedly allows for 'hop biotransformation' during active fermentation, so I put a 100g dry hop charge in at 2 days. I'll let you know what it's like once kegged and ready in 2 weeks.

Edited the post as you replied! Just to include that I added a 100g dry hop charge at day 2 to test out this hop biotransformation malarky.

I'm still freaked out from when I added last lot in with a week to go
That was good article and just confirms all the stuff i started doing recently, late and 80 degree additions purging carboy with co2 and just leaving them on a couple of days, etc etc
Cheers for posting

No probs. His blog has to be the best source of info on hoppy styles. I'd never be able to understand the sources he pulls from, but he breaks it down brilliantly.

Very good article by Scott Janish here. Biotransformation heading about 1/4 the way down.

I was reading that today too. The stuff about extracting the oils within a day really has me thinking about dry hop times.
