can i use this to brew beer?
marino angostura on Oct 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I’m sure you could but the made for beer yeasts are more predictable giving beer like flavors and less slightly off flavors. I have never used premier red for beer and use American ale or similar for my 20 gallon batches but often use it for my 150 gallon wine production.
