obviously, this quote is with a 'clin d'oeil'. Humour often is a good vehicle propagating rather complex issues.

I am not surprised, Ricardo. After all you spent long enough time in Bavaria to dig our culture ;)

Back to Nick's problem though:. You need to pitch more yeast m8. A lot more!

Use this calculator

https://www.brewersfriend.com/yeast-pit ... alculator/

And select the high gravity 2.0 value for cell count. You could do with a little more even, when doing the cold fermentation. Fir the method I'd recommend the C White stir plates.

For a clean, Bavarian style beer, you need a lot more yeast than people tell you. A lot more. This applies to wheat beer as well.

Happy brewing

I really like Brewers Friend, use it for every brew, great recipe formulation, PH calculator is really close and they have a great step by step brew day check list so I don't forget things.
