BRY-97 Trial Brew

Hi All,

After getting my hands on some of the new Danstar BRY-97 American West Coast Ale yeast, I wanted to do a test brew with it.  I haven't had good experiences with Danstar previously when I used the Munich yeast (produced horrible flavours and was never great), but I have high hopes for this new one.  Most of what I'm reading is that it's ferments quickly, thoroughly, with a clean flavour at high temps and compacts quite well.

This is the recipe I brewed with this yeast:

Columbus IPA

IBU:  96 approx.

1.4 Kg Sorghum Syrup @ 60 minutes
250g Maltodextrine @ 60 minutes
30g Columbus  Hops (12% AA) @ 60 minutes
15g Columbus Hops (14.6%AA) @ 15 minutes

  1. Brilliant!
    I brewed beer and baked bread when I was at Uni. A few years ago I had to go gluten free. Since then I have solved the bread problem see recently I have been thinking about beer. Great to see you working on GF beer.
