Title: Yeast book
Post by: MaltLicker on November 20, 2011, 04:52:46 PM
I took my copy of Yeast on a trip this week and finally read a good piece of it.  It's very informative and I've picked up some tips I will use.

After reading , one tip is leaving the beer to sit and let the yeast clean up after itself ,,,I now use the secondary for cleaner yeast cell with a better bottles

I had to chime in and add that this book has completely changed the way I look at what I thought was one of the lesser ingredients in beer. A real eye-opener. Some of my upcoming recipes no longer contain a secondary fermentation step, even the porter that's sitting in my primary as I type will never see the inside of my secondary!

are you referencing, "Yeast - The Practical Guide to Beer Fermentation" by Chris White?

To each his own!  I know my beers taste better when transferring off yeast cake after 6-7 days and doing secondary for 7-14 days.

IMO.

I'm doing a little experiment.  I split a batch, one is still in primary, a week shy of one month. The other I transferred to secondary last week.  I will bottle them both next week and let them condition for another two weeks and then compare.

Awesome, I can't wait to hear about this. Just finished Gordon Strong's book and he was pretty sure you would taste autolysis if you let it sit.
