    Annoyingly, I have that in my yeast store but as I was aiming for a more English style hoppy ale, rather than a full on US style, I thought I'd use the ale yeast. Still, lesson learned - malty ales only in the future for this yeast. 😀

    I have used the CML in the ag gh summer ale which I kegged a couple of weeks ago. I've drawn a cup full to test....it is most acceptable!

    I love CML yeast. Got 5 brews at the suppin' stage now, all made with either US Pale, Real Ale or Cali Common and every one is a belter, after the most trouble-free fermentations any homebrew guy could wish for. Just wanted to get that off me chest. Happy today cos our tom cat has returned after going awol for a week. Must get his plums off....

    I just want to update on the Saison yeast. After whacking an airlock in, giving it a bit of a gentle swirl and upping the temps a tiny bit, it's decided to have another go... So might get it a bit dryer yet. Seems it could be one that likes a little break before finishing work.... :lol: Fingers crossed, glad I decided to leave it another 7 days before doing anything with it though. :whistle: Need to confirm it is doing more though, as only going by the airlock bubbling, need to check the SG see if it has dropped any more.

    A new record today - airlock bubbling 2.5 hours after pitching with the Crossmyloof Real Ale yeast. :-o

    Confirmed. Down from 1.015 on 11th, to 1.013 today, and tastes delicious. Nom

    It's rapid isn't it

    Going to try a couple different beers I made with it for the first time in a few days, fingers crossed!

    Yeah, this is the 2nd time I've used it, first was bottled at the weekend so no idea how it'll taste. I really like how quick it goes, have had ones take 3 days to get going before. But the ultimate test will be the taste.

    Is it clear yet?! All my CML beers have been crystal in 5 days max. Taste great at that stage, too.

    I started mine on 21/10/2017, and it's STILL going, so seems you need some serious patience with it.

    Given the better alternatives though, probably not worth the extra waiting. I'll probably just use up what I already have (AFTER I've used the 2 packets of MJs I have... lol), then switch to either MJs or Belle Saison.

    I will say though, the beer is REALLY tasty! Gorgeous golden colour too. Still some particles floating around in it though, between that and the fact I could see it "fizzing" in the trial jar, it's definitely still going. :lol:

    Isn't beer funny stuff? Had the King Keg sat in a water bath at 20 degrees for about a week, then put in the garage to cold crash for a couple of days. Now, obviously, it needs a few weeks to condition, but somehow, this Bobek hop smell and taste has appeared out of nowhere. It's a lovely golden colour. Still a bit cloudy, but give it time.

    Yes funny stuff, I bottled some Yorkshire Bitter a few weeks back and it was almost tasteless in the FV. Two weeks conditioning and carbing and it has developed some really nice fruity esters and hoppiness.
