Heya folks...has anyone used Safale K-97 before and recall its growth cycle? I have brewed a small batch, 2 gal, of a Klosch from book published by Brooklyn Brew Shop. The recipe called for White Labs German Ale but a quick trip out to Google came on a dry yeast suggestion of Fermentis K-97. So here's where I am, I pitched an 11.5 g packet directly into the wort at 70° F that got 30 seconds of pure Oxygen on Saturday afternoon with an SG at 1052 and moved the carboy to the basement which was at about 60°F. By early Sunday afternoon I had a kausen forming on the top and I could see a yeast activity going on but no off gassing going on in my blow off set up that I had installed. Thinking that I was asking too much of the yeast and that maybe there was some CO2 making it out somewhere else so I made sure I had my lid sealed off and but in a double bubble lock with some Starsan. Still no off gassing. Not having any experience with the strain, is this normal?
