Yeast Started for Another Cream Ale

2012-07-14_10-30-22_435.jpg Here is our Nottingham yeast, spinning away and reproducing in preparation for a Sunday brew session.  This is another cream ale, but from extract. I started the yeast on Saturday morning in 1000mL of Briess dry malt extract.  It took longer to cool then I figured and all the yeast fell to the bottom and the stir rod didn’t want to start spinning until I gave it a good shake to get everything suspended again.  This was the first use of the stir-plate and I’m happy with it, seeing as it was all parts I had laying around, save the stir rod and the potentiometer.

Brew on Brother, Brew on!
