This picture was taken at 5:30 pm after pitching yeast at:
10:30 am according to the brew-day schedule. The yeast was SafAle WB-06, pitched 36 hours previously as a one-quart starter. The grain bill was again 3:5 raw wheat to Pilsner malt, this time just a 1 hour mash and 1 hour boil. 0.75 oz house-aged Willamette hops at 60 min.
While the previous Cantillon bottle-harvest starter had a lag phase of about five days, this had a lag phase of about seven hours. Now, I could have (and plan to) do a better job at getting that bottle harvest starter going, but I let myself get too excited and didn't give it time. It is nice to see yeast doing what they do well.
On the subject of the Cantillon attempt:
It now has a nice thin pellicle on it, which I have read is a good sign. To be honest, this just looks like kahm yeast that you find on some vegetable ferments, however I will say that it looks less "brittle" since it has survived quite a bit of shaking, as it sits on the table next to two carboys full of wine that I shake routinely.
It appears that I am well on my way to a series of beers at this point, all with the same grain bill and minimal variations in hops, but with different brew schedules and very different yeast strains. I've currently got a really wild one and a very tame one, with several more planned.
