Hey brewers hope you are all good.

I put on a brew yesterday for the old man a St. Peter’s cream stout just an extract tin kit nothing flash and I had some London ale 1318 on hand and thought I’ll give it a shot it says it can do cream stouts. Pitched it at 25 didn’t let it warm up really just smacked and pitched as it’s never really made much difference in my opinion. Well 2 hours later the lid on my bucket fermenter blew off hahah and I had to fit a blow off tube and this morning I got up and same again lid blew off so I put my spare lid on all cleaned I hope no infection has got in. How can you stop this type of thing from happening? Did I pitch to warm?
Cheers
Ray

Hahaha brilliant. No not too warm , but yeast can do some unreal things sometimes. At the brewery where i work very part time I hear stories of dry hopping nightmares lol. The yeast just going nuts and the brewer can hardly screw the dry hop lid back down and there's wort and beer just totally hosing out the top, lol. I don't know why , it just sometimes happen. Has an infection occurred when pitching? Possibly , but lets hope not. Let us know how it turns out. Very interesting, cheers.

Gday finnroo

No infection tastes great actually just went mental but worse then that it’s come to a grinding halt at 1020 been there for 3 days now. I don’t have anymore London 1318 but I do have some left over us-05 I think I’ll pitch and try to get it going again if I bottle it now I can see it going back to my childhood of my uncles coopers stout bottles blowing up in the shed lol

That's great news mate. There's nothing wrong with 1020. I've had it a lot with a certain mangroves Jacks yeast i think it was m44 ( ill have to check) And once i did throw some us05 at it and it went down tp 1012. I've never used 1318 .
I'm brewing at the moment, and will look into it tomorrow, but my gut tells me that yeast is doing what it should be doing and i would probably just go with it.
I need to look into why some yeasts have a high finish and other a low finish.
People talk about a stuck fermentation but to be honest i dont think we need to worry about that if we are fermenting within range. Cheers

Gday finroo

I ended up pitching 2 packets of us-04 as it’s the closest to 1318 that I had and it went down to 1016 that’s it. So it is what it is I just wanted to be sure but one thing I’ve noticed is the flavour has changed now with the newer yeast still good but not as sweeter finish see how it carbs up anyway.

Cheers
