Top Cropping References

Postby Natebriscoe » Fri Jan 06, 2017 10:52 pm

Has anyone come across any good reference materials for Top Cropping? It seems most mention it in passing and don't really dig in much. (Even the Yeast book seems to just skim over it)

If I remember correctly there's a practise mention in the Brewing Classic Styles German Wheat beer book: http://shop.humle.se/litteratur/oltyper ... e-series-7

What I reckon you should discard the top brown layer that's supposed to have a harsh bitterness to it, then gather all the foam during high kräusen. It's the only proper way to reuse weizenyeast like the w68 (Weihenstephan) or 3638 (Schneider).
