No flames here, I know Red Star is not premium stuff. It does,
however, have the distinction of being, until last month, the only
yeast at the only brewing supply shop in Sacramento that I could
find. In Red Star's defense, I must note that in the three batches I've
made since moving to Sacto, I've had fine results. I brew extract,
plus the occasional grain adjunct, so maybe I'm not providing enough
challenge for those little yeasties. Only in adversity can true quality
be measured...
