I'm culturing up from 1845 at the moment. I accidentally turned the plate off overnight and there's about 4mm of yeast in the bottom of a caffetiere so it's really coming along. Two bottle dregs straight into a litre of 1.040 spraymalt wort, and I forgot about yeast nutrient. Have you tried the 1845 yeast before? I'll do the Gales strain, too. What's it like, and what beers should I be looking at to make with it? Thanks.
