Used wrong yeast

Recommended Posts

Hi, i just brewed the pumpkin rising recipe this morning and the recipe called for S-33 dry ale yeast. I put the dry yeast that was under lid by mistake. Can I add the S-33 yeast to the keg also?

Your beer won't be ruined it will just be different than the recipe. Big whoop dee doo. Chalk it up as a learning experience. Who knows, when you make that recipe again using the correct yeast, you might decide you preferred your mistake brew better.

No need to add more yeast. The S-33 is popular for Belgium style (wheat) brews with spicy yeast accent. The under the lid yeast I believe will be slightly "cleaner" in taste. Not sure about attenuation. Anyway, you'll still be making a good beer.
