I was just wondering if anyone has any experience or thoughts on co-fermenting with multiple yeast strains.
I just finished a Manuka Smoked whisky with great success where I fermented half the wash with EC-1118 and the other half with Distilamax MW.
As I experiment with other whiskys I want to reduce my volumes a bit and rather than ferment 2 batches one after the other I want to try and do one ferment with both yeasts.
I'm just not sure given EC-1118 is a killer yeast so will it kill/ out compete the MW strain?
I will give it a try but am curious if anyone has done it and how it worked out.
When pitching should I just half the dosages of each yeast? Or do they both need to be pitched at the full dose?
