Used the 1056

The yeast came in. Hot weather and I was not sure it was still good finally added safe 05 to insure fermentation .
I. Had the same problem with yeast 1272 and had to use more 05 to insure fermentation, will probably only use dry yeast in future.

Yeast

The yeast that came with my kit had activated during shipping. Therefore I had to order a replacement. This is the first time in 2 years that this had happened to me. I plan on brewing White House Honey Porter tomorrow!
🍻 cheers!
