In response to a message I read in the HBD a couple of days
ago, I have a question about the delbrueckii yeast which Wyeast packages
in their 3056 packets. I have similarly colony-purified yeast from this packet
which will give the chacteristic cloviness which a freind of mine was looking
for. As you stated, other colony isolates give a maltiness which is similar
to many lager yeasts, while colonies of another larger appearrance are obviously delbrueckii. The problem is that when he attempted to ferment with yht this
tyeast (please excuse typos, I don't know how to edit on this terminal!t)
it stopped about halfway to the expected terminal gravity. Is this charistic
it stopped about halfway to the expected terminal gravity. Is this charistic
it stopped about halfway to the expected terminal gravity. Is this charistic
(sorry) of this yeast, and does it need the other strain to finish out? It is possible that I simply have a mutant, and could pick more colonies if this is the
case. Perhaps it is this particular strain from Wyeast?
I cannot completely eliminate the possibility that this merely a
stuck ferment due to some other factor than the yeast itself. However, he
says he has used the 3056 before without this problem. I certainly welcome any comments on this subject.

Thanks,
