So the Wilco yeast has done the trick and it’s bubbling away nicely. What will happen now with the old yeast? Will it just sink to the bottom or will it spoil the brew?

I think it will just sink.

I bought some wilko yeast but when I opened the carboy there was a huge layer of foam and gravity has droppwd from 1058 to 1024 so I didn't need to add it.

My lid must be leaking air so we are all good

i'm dry hopping tomorrow, should I just lash it in or tie it inside a muslin bag to make racking easier\? (and if so I guess I need to weigh the bag down)

How messy is it, do the dry hops dissolve or will they clog the syphon?

Cheers,
Al

You can do either...make sure you sterilise EVERYTHING!
Boil a couple of steel spoons to sink a bag if you use one..I did this.
Your kit comes with a syphon sock to go over the end of your syphon tube if you decide to sling em in.

Thanks mate -
no syphon sock in the kit so I have boiled and sterilised the arse out of 2 spoons and a muslin bag, wrapped them up and syphoned onto it in a clean bucket. It was at 1010 so I've taken it off the yeast sediment. I'm not sure if I should have left it as it was and simply added the hops , but it's been such a slow ferment I did it anyway (17 days)

3 days time, I'll batch prime and bottle

4 week test, and this beer is amazing.

If i was charged £5 a pint in Brewdog I'd think it was theirs.
