hello,

Yes I'm still here for at least the next 4 weeks I guess. In response to
the query regarding MeV yeast. I have used both MeV yeast and Wyeast
liquid cultures. I did not have fantastic results with the MeV yeast.
A bunch of our club members got some through an introductory offer.
Others in the club had better results but recently our local supplier
Hennessy Homebrew has started carrying Wyeast cultures. The concensus
is that these work well and are much easier to use. Only one or two
problems have been reported regarding these cultures from the more than
6 people who I know have used them. I had god results myself but found the
yeast to be slow starting when pitched directly from the package and
the ale yeast I used (generic ale) while attenuating rather well took its
time ( 3 weeks) to do so. The flavors produced by it were excellent though.
Good luck
- jay h
