I racked my latest attempt to the secondary(s) today and added 1.5oz dry hop in each fermenter. It is too young to really judge flavors, but the S-05 is a little more bitter and tastes a bit drier also. The S-04 is a little more fruity, and cleared a lot more than the S-05 (it is on the right in the picture). I put both fermenters in a bathtub with ~68 degree water to ensure they were under the same temperature conditions during primary. I'll update again after the dry-hop is done. Glad to hear yours came out good also theTomG, i wonder how the California II yeast compares to I, the extra fruitiness probably plays well with the recipe.

Just added the dry hops only went with 2 oz but I'm hopeful it turns out great. Little worried about the yeasty stickies on the side of the carboy. But will see after ten more days , brewed up on Oct 9th.

I finally kegged my ZD 2 weeks ago and sampled some this week. I used the skeezerpleezer recipe in this thread with London ESB yeast. I also dry hopped with 4 oz of Citra instead of 3. It turned out amazing. I think the aroma and taste are spot on. Here's a pic of the clone against the original. Mine's to the left. I'm getting a good amount of hop haze but color is pretty close. I dry hop in the keg. I also created a label for bottling this. The label came from the beerlabelizer.com site. I'm a big fan of the Walking Dead series on AMC and wanted a Walking Dead theme to my label. Here's the label also.

Cheers!

So I picked up some Zombie Dust before they ran out yesterday, and I must say that this recipe is damn close! Ran out of homebrew before I had the wherewithal to take a side by side, but my color was spot on, head was a little thinner than the real thing and overall just a bit sweeter. I think that had I kept the temp just a degree or two higher during fermentation, the 1968 would have attenuated down closer to 1.018 and would have been spot on to the real thing (mine finished at 1.020).

Finally had my point of reference. Can't wait to brew my own.

This is my hydrometer sample. I'll be dry hopping tomorrow. I used pellet hops this go around and WLP002. Can't believe how clear it is now. I can already tell this is going to be much better than my 1st attempt (which was pretty awesome)!
