So I just took my Christmas money to the LHBS and stocked up on Grain, Hops, Yeast and a shiny new (to me) keg. I have the itch to brew and am gonna brew two 5 gal batches on next monday.
- Porter recipe I love with a hop change to experiment. (Williamette for E.Kent Goldings)
- Patersbier…I got all the stuff for it from my LHBS but they stock White Labs yeast only. I opted for the WL500 Trappist Ale Yeast (high gravity) as it was the closest they had to the 3787 from Wyeast.
I am dead set on brewing with what I have and don’t care about hitting the Patersbier taste exactly, but what kind of differences am I gonna see? My brother brewed the Patersbier Extract kit from NB and it was awesome. Will I be anywhere close to that taste with this yeast or will I be completely out of the ballpark.
Either way, I am gonna drink it like it is my job!! Just curious.
