Application Tip:

To clean up the fermentation by product diacetyl, create a large starter culture for a 5-gallon batch with a stir plate. For worts ~ 1.050 O.G., the following fermentation schedule will work with a robust starter: Once krausen has developed ferment for 4 days at 48F. Following the 1st 4-day period, raise the temperature to 53F and hold for 4-days. After the 4-day period at 53F, raise the temperature to 60F and hold for another 4 days or until the beer has finished out and the diacetyl has been re-absorbed by the yeast. 

For beers with greater gravities, the starter culture will need to be increased. Calculate the starter culture amount via the on-line tool at Wyeast or in a quality computerized brewing program such as Beer Smith, Beer Alchemy or Beer Tools.

The 2308 produces tasty Schwarzbiers, enhancing the warm roast quality of dehusked Carafa malts.
