Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

ECY09
Swapped some dude for a few slants of ECY. Even if you want to buy them, they're almost impossible to find so one must resort to the dark alleys of the internet to find them.

The description of the yeast is a bit vague. It seems most appropriate for a dubbel, but I'm a tripel man myself. Has anyone used ECY09 for a tripel, and if so, what was your attenuation, flavor and aroma outcome, and would you use it again? What was your fermentation temperature?

Re: ECY09
I haven't heard anyone using 09 for a tripel yet recently, however, many Belgian yeasts are used for many styles. You will definately pick up alot of plum fruit and clove. Good balance between the two. I recommend pitching at the lowest temperature end or even lower at 60F and let rise within range.

Al B,

Is this similar to the CL-300 strain? I have found some posts going back about 7-8 years on some defunct homebrew forums where people were commenting on its performance -- which seemed fairly positive as having a "great generic Belgian character" as one person said.

Re: ECY09
Ultimately my slant was contaminated with something profoundely sour. But oh my, you can taste the wonderful spice through all that sour noise. I see what you mean about it not really fitting a tripel. Quad, dubbel, blonde would be just fantastic.
