Title: wit beer high krussen
Post by: wbc_leelee on October 25, 2003, 12:10:12 PM
I put a wit beer down yesterday and used wlp410 begium wit II ale yeast. I aerated well and used a 1.5 lt starter in 21 lt brew, I have about six inches of foam on top after 12 hours. Is this normal for this yeast I have never had a brew that fermented this aggresively. It's lucky I ferment in 30 lt buckets or I would have a real mess.
Regards
Andrew

Andrew,
 If I remember you will get a nice fluffy white head that looks very much like the white head you get when you poor the actual beer.  I've always had a nice solid fermentation with this recipe.

 They don't call it a Wit  (White beer) for nothing.

 BTW - Save off some of the yeast - it is easily robust enough to reuse several times.
