Used wy1318 a couple of times. I love this yeast! Malty tones, lots of flavour, hint of sweet ales. Just wish it was more buyable. Nobody on the island has it in stock. Brewuk are the only HBS with stock.
Agree with bursting the pouch problems - worse than a pimple on yer arse!

Yeah thinking of crying hopping for 1 day now before starting my cold crash and gelatin, which means it'll still have about 4 days in there.
Fermenting: IPA, Lambic, Mead
Conditioning: Lambic, Cider, RIS, Ole Ale, Saison
On Tap: IPA, Helles, Best Bitter

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

http://scottjanish.com/examination-of-studies-hopping-methods-and-concepts-for-achieving-maximum-hop-aroma-and-flavor/
Interesting read that. The fact that dry hopping is really done in less than a day and to avoid oxygen pick up when dry hopping  :)

Which yeasts have you tried out (or are planning to) for NEPAs? They're all English strains are they? Is the Heady Topper one originally an English strain?

Ok as Nationals are now closed happy to say I did a Side by Side 007 v 051 shootout, when both in prime 051 won hands down with a more fruity aromatic punch, 007 started to clear
Next test Wyeast LA iii v Yeast Bay Vermont

Did the 051 have the aggressively grassy flavour when it was fresh? When we tasted this at the SCD meet, the 007 was much smoother and tasty, whereas the 051 was particularly harsh.
Looks like age has a massive effect on this style as well.

Much better when it was fresh, you had all the chewy bits from end of the keg  :(
next experiment for GCB comp is 051 v Vermont v Yeast LA III, thats a lot of starburst ;)
I'll make sure you get it fresh, I think there is a 6-8 week shelf life on this stuff ???

Reminded me of this! A classic scene from Swingers. Skip in to 0.50  :)
