So I was set to brew a dusseldorf alt bier, only problem is my yeast is now bad due to an infection.
Here is my ingredient list;
55lb Best Malz Pilsner
7lb Crystal 40
3.5 Magnum 60 min
3.5 Perle 20 min
7.0 Mt Hood 0 min flameout
Est. SRM: 17 Est. IBU’s: 36-38 Est. O.G.: 1.051
Its a 35 gallon batch, so when your yeast goes bad, you dont just run out and buy 16-17 vials of white labs. It will take me weeks to build up the needed yeast to make what I had originally planned happen.
So my question is this; With the grain bill that you see up there, where would you take this with the yeast’s that I have at my disposal? I currently have enough Cal Ale yeast, West Yorkshire Ale yeast, or Old Bavarian Lager to make this happen. I am leaning toward going with a lager? I am willing to tweak the hops of course, but the grain has been ground and it is no longer separated…so that’s GOING to be my grain bill? Any advice would be much appreciated.
