When is the red star champagne yeast supposed to be added? During secondary fermentation or bottling? Thanks
chris on May 21, 2015
Best Answer: That yeast is added at at bottling(step 23 of the instructions) to ensure bottle carbonation.

I'm using the safale dry yeast and was curious if anyone made a starter using this or just added more yeast and if so how many dry packets did you use? Thanks!
A shopper on Jun 30, 2015
Best Answer: You would either want to do a 1.5 to 2 liter starter or add 3 packets of dry yeast to meet the manufacturer's recommendation. 2 would probably do it. You can prevent future problems by aerating really well if you do not have enough yeast.

So, I was advised to add the red star yeast during secondary fermentation, which I did. Did this ruin my barleywine? Or, should I add a primary yeast again and then add the red star yeast during bottling? thanks all!
chris on Jun 10, 2015
Best Answer: It is highly unlikely that you ruined your batch. If most or all of the fermentable sugars are digested by the primary yeast you may not get much, if any, flavor profile from the red star (which tends to be less desirable than your primary yeast). The red star should just help snag the last fermentables. You most likely won't need any additional yeast during bottling, but barleywines are notorious for being tricky to naturally carbonate. In summary, your beer is fine, no need to add more yeast. :-)

Using the dry yeast what final gravity's are people getting? Should I add any sugar or honey as late additions to bump up the abv, etc? Thanks!
A shopper on Jul 13, 2015
Best Answer: I don't think I'd recommend upping the gravity at all, its strong enough already and increasing the alcohol could pose concerns for yeast health, bottle conditioning, and other hard to predict factors. The dry yeast is rated for 77% attenuation so the kit could go as low as 1.018, but 1.023 or lower is a good healthy ferment producing a stable beer.
