I just installed the summer edition of "Books In Print" which is
a CD-ROM product, naturally I tested it with a search on brewing...
here is the result.

(I did ask, the copyright person here said I could post this to the
network if I included the following)

============ END OF BOOK LIST ============

also RE: Freeze Shield

I have been purchasing USP glyserin at my local pharmacy (behind the counter)
for about $6.25 a pint (430 somthing milliters), this seems to work fine and is
less expensive than reagent grade stuff at chemical supply stores, I autoclave
the stuff in a glass bottle prior to use (15 lbs for 15 min.). If they don't
stock it (most have smaller bottles) usually a pharmacist will order it for

Question on Wyeast lab yeasts.

I had always liked the way Edme dry ale yeast worked, I started it in warm
water and added some wort to that during the boil, it smelled very nice, and I
have not had any contamination problems. Since I switched to Wyeast, I've
noticed that the package (both lager and ale) smells kinda funky when its
opened. I usually start the pack, transfer it to a yeast culture flask
(all totally sterile) and the resultant ferment still has the same smell.
I further notice the smell in the blow off gasses from the ferment, but by the
time I bottle and open to drink the stuff it has dropped off.

1. Could it be the yeast strains Wyeast is using? (or some lab process?)
2. Is this true of other brands of lab yeast?
3. Has anyone else noticed this?

I may try to do a single cell isolation of the Edme yeast and get a pure strain
of it going. Any comments?
