    I will probably go with QA23 or BA11. No MLF, no oak. If I had a stainless steel fermenter, I'd use it.

    Yeah, Fred is hard core with his yeast blends.

    Very interesting. I'm going to go with a Prelude start before the Rhone 4600. Thinking also about using this opportunity to test another yeast in a carboy. I may go way out of the box and use a red-wine yeast to see what that brings.
