Hello all - first post on NB. I suppose this question could be under yeast/fermentation, but it’s a general NB kit question, so I wasn’t sure.
I’m about to purchase the 115th Dream Hopbursted IPA All-Grain Kit - it seems like a fun brew, and I enjoy a nice sweet IPA from time to time.
Regarding the yeast choice - I’ve only ever used liquid for my beers, but this seems a good candidate to throw a few packs of dry yeast in and be done with it. It starts at 1.090ish, is a pretty plain strain (American Ale) and will need a huge starter - I only have a 2L flask. Plus, even with a starter Mr. Malty’s calling for two packs of Liquid.
Has anyone tried this with the dry option? Results?
Alternatively, should I brew a smaller beer first and harvest a huge amount of yeast to re-pitch?
