Subject: Problems with long ferment--WYeast 1056
Date: 1992-03-04 14:47:39 GMT

Hello. I don't know if this is relevant to the discussion, but I had
a small problem with 1056 last November (or perhaps December, I can't
remember). Anyway, my original gravity was 1.068, but it only fermented
down to around 1.028. This seemed somewhat strange to me, but since I
had not used 1056 for anything with a higher gravity than about 1.050,
I just thought the alcohol tolerance might be low. The beer tastes great,
though (myabe a little sweet...). I also made a few cultures of it.
The cultures seem to look a little bit different than the last time I
cultured 1056, but I can't be sure, because I haven't done it in about a
year. Anyway, the yeast seemed to be fast enough, just didn't ferment
out as far as I expected.
