What yeast is used with this beer?
Michael Hrenchir on Apr 23, 2018

What kind of White Wheat comes with the all-grain kit? Briess Raw White Wheat, Great Western White Wheat Malt, or something else?

Yeast Experiment - Love this Recipe
This is a great recipe; I’ve ordered and made it many times and it is a go-to for me. Because of this I wanted to test with different yeast strains and figure out which yeast I like the most out of the recommended strains. Lunar Shock xBeeraMent take 1.
In this experiment I made a 5-gallon batch and split it up into two different glass fermentation vessels. Both were fermented in the same temperature controlled keezer at 69 deg f. Brew day 8/14/2020, OG at 1.060. Batch A was pitched with WLP001 and batch B was pitched with Safale US-05. Since the wort was split in half there was no need to use a yeast starter on batch a and batch b’s yeast was cut down using calculations according to Mr. Malty’s online calculator. Both had a vigorous fermentation and on 8/26/2020 fermentation had slowed, krausen had mostly fallen and airlock activity was slow. I raised temp to 78 deg f for a d-rest and let it settle until 9/1/2020 before cold crashing to 34 deg f. Both were fined with Gelatin a few days before racking to kegs on 9/3/2020. Batch A FG was 1.011, batch B FG was 1.010. Approx ABV was 6.5%. Kegs were carbed to 2.3 vols over two weeks.
My assumption was that I would be drawn to batch B, dry yeast Safale US-05, as I thought it would have a cleaner and more crisp taste. 9/19/2020 I had 4 neighbors/brewers come to a blind taste test. Each person was served three glasses and asked to determine the odd one out, then asked to pick a favorite. All 5 (including me) were able to successfully identify the odd ball; it was actually pretty easy. And interestingly enough, all 5 of us also thought batch A, with yeast WLP001, complimented the recipe more. It finished much more smoothly and had a crisper flavor profile. Batch B was still good and had more of a citrus profile, however it almost seemed as if the first taste had a sour note and the overall profile was not as attractive as batch A. It finished well and if not compared directly to batch A I would still recommend. However, my intention was to find out which yeast I thought was better and, in this experiment, WLP001 won hands down. Cheers!

Hefeweizen ?
This turned out much more like a hefeweizen in taste and smell than a blue moon / wheat.

True Blue Moon Clone
I brewed this kit in BIAB method with 1.5 gallon sparge and it worked great. Used Gigayeast NorCal #1 and it fermented and hazed up real nice. Used a carb stone with oxygen bottle and the yeast loved that. 2 Weeks in the fermenter and 2 Weeks for bottle conditioning. Fermented around 68 Degrees. Primed with corn sugar to 2.7 vol and the head and carbonation were perfect. Mashed and boiled according to recipe with no clarifier. This beer did not last long at all and I will keep ordering.
Everything included in kit.
Nice head.  An orange slice ups the flavor as well.

Another great kit!
I just finished keg carbonating and it tastes great. I followed the recipe sheet exactly as written. I will do this one again, but I may add a fresh orange to the secondary. The flavors are subtle and bitterness is low compared to IPAs that I usually do. Very drinkable. The wife really likes this one (she's not a fan of heavy hopped beers). I batch sparged, US-05 yeast, 1 week primary, 2 weeks secondary. Ended up with ABV at 5.9. Thanks for making great kits (Pliny is still my favorite)!

Wow! Possibly better than the "real thing!"
This came out very well. The color is an cloudy golden. You can taste the organge and (maybe) the cardamom. It's very refreshing.

Fantastic Recipe
I did this one using brew-in-a-bag method, and it resulted in a fantastically drinkable beer. Yeast I used was the GigaYeast NorCal #1, and I kegged after three weeks in primary/secondary fermentation. This beer is a true hit and will be a staple in my kegerator for quite some time.

Orange & Spice - Very Nice!
Wow! I made this for my Summer Beer and it exceeded my expectations. I kegged it at 2.8 volumes CO2 and it’s delicious and creamy. For those that say they do not like craft beer, this is the beer you want for them. Great kit. ??
