I have been using Williams supplies a lot lately and have found their stuff
to be very good. They have their own malt extract and malt extract syrup which
seems to be very good quality. Their kits are also good. I and several people
in our club have made the wheat beer kit (which uses liquid yeast) and they
have all turned out great. I'm making a bock right now (based on TCJoHB
"Potlatch Dopplebock") using Williams ingredients and liquid lager yeast.
Its fermenting away right now. It took about 24 hours from pitching till
there were signs of activity.

I have had one unusual experience - I made a porter about two months ago and
used their dried ale yeast - I forget the variety but it is a package of
14 grams, which it says is twice as much as normal dried packages so the
ferment starts fast. However after 24 hours there was no sign of any activity
so I panicked and threw in a package of Ironmaster yeast I had lying around.
(That was partly because I was leaving town for two days and didnt want to
risk it.) It was going well when I got back. Usually using dried yeast I have
activity within hours, and its blowing off in 24. Anyone else have any
experience with Williams dried ale yeast?
