Yeast

Sierra Nevada kellerweis

Here is a rough guide on how I cultured up the yeast

20g of spray malt boiled in 200ml water, the dregs of two bottles of kellerweis
Where added when cooled. These where chilled so as to sediment as much yeast as possible.

Yeast added and let get to work

It took around 3-4 days to see activity but it took off. This was then pitched into a step up starter (1 litre) that will be split in two, one for storage and another to produce a starter to brew with.

Starter for the week going well

Pitched and fermenting well, this actual keep going and over spilled like an number of hefe yeasts I have used before.

I’ve used the Keller yeast a few times and really liked it. Very easy and happy yeast to step up!
