Just got the bottle of Sierra Nevada out the recycling bin. It still had the dregs as I wanted to show my brewing mate.

Not very clear, but some of the 'bits' look very transparent. :confusedface:

I have a stir plate and a flask. So I think I will try a both methods.

I'll just have to buy two bottles
I wasnt aware the kernal brewery bottle conditioned their beer. Do you know what strain(s) they use. Their brewery is only about 20 mins from me so if they use anything interesting I can nip down there and pick up a bottle or two

Seirra Nevada uses the chico strain. I'm not sure if it's US-05, WLP001, Wyeast 1968 or something similar but not quite the same as any of the above three

Doing a quick bit of googling your absolutely right. They bottle condition (at least some if not all) of their beer. Might be worth firing off a quick email to see if they use a propriatory strain or perhaps something from a yeast lab or even a dried strain. Plus ask if they bottle condition with the same (primary) strain as they ferment with

I can see the sort of floaty dust in suspension when I leave it and when I shake it I see the tiny bubbles you see on starters. So it looks like it's going. Fingers crossed

As soon as I am out of the 500ml bottles. A butty batch is going in it

By the way I might be wrong but I think the Sierra nevada thing came up here before and I think the general consensus was it was US05 or WLP001
