I accidentally pitched a pack of Wyeast 1968 instead of the 2000mL Wyeast 1056 starter I intended to use.
Does Wyeast 1968 and Wyeast 1056 = Wyeast 1512?  :P

I don't think it will be a problem. The two don't have that much difference as far as the stats go, so you should be fine. Just don't ferment lower than 64deg F. Once you get this off the primary you may want to wash the yeast. This may be your best mistake to date.  ;D  As far as how this will change the taste? Who knows. ???

Let us know if this is something we should also try!!!

Cheers

To follow up on my earlier stout...the mash-hopping didn't blow me away and since they were plugs, they gummed up the lautering a bit.  I also FWH'd so it's hard to tell, but the process hassle alone was not worth it.  I would only try it again with pellets, if at all.  I won a BOS this month with a FWH'd APA, so I stand by the positive results of FWH that some people have reported. 

Belgian Pale ale tomorrow.

I have begun a series of all grain brewing sessions stimulated by Zainasheff & Palmer's, Brewing Classic Styles.  Thus far I have brewed their, "Munich Madness, Hoppiness is an IPA and the Nutty Man Brown Ale."

Tomorrow I will stop at Northern Brewery and pick up supplies for their, "Weed, Feed and Mow Cream Ale, and the Irish Red Ale."

I would recommend the recipes to all.

Ditto on Brewing Classic Styles.  A friend and I have brewed and entered several of our variations on Jamil's recipes and won ribbons, including a Nut Brown Ale.  If you haven't seen it, Palmer covers the core extract brewing process, and Jamil offers tested, award-winning recipes for almost every style, first in extract and then an AG option.  He offers insight into why a certain mash-temp is best, or why certain ingredients make the style.  Great book.

I'm stopping at Home Brew Mart on my way home from work today to pick up ingredients for a double IPA, with thoughts of Stone Ruination in mind.  It's not easy spending $25 on hops alone, but I'm getting tired of brewing kolschs, dry stouts, and low-hopped beers in general.  Trying to decide if I have time to make a starter, or if I'm just going to buy two vials of WLP001.

My little brother's in town after spending the summer working in Mexico, and he wants to make a gigantic Belgian-style triple to put away until Christmas of '09.

We're going to try and brew both of them this (long) weekend, but it may just be the Ruination.  We'll see.

(That book looks good, by the way, I think it's going on my Amazon wish list...)
