I am going to brew this recipe, this weekend. I bought a Shakespeare Stout on Monday to try and harvest some pacman. Its still on my stirplate, but Im pretty sure it is a fail.

Anyway here is the question, I have WLP001 and WLP005 from other batches in the fridge. I see people have success with WLP001, any one try WLP005 as it brings out the maltiness? Just curious, I might try and post results.

You should stick with the wlp001, unless you're willing to increase the fermentation temp and have a more estery beer that isn't really like Dead Guy.

I actually came home and after sitting on the stir plate for 48 hours, the wort only attenuated a couple points, but I figured if its a couple points, something is going on in there. So I put in the fridge and this morning I had a nice little layer of yeast on the bottom. I stepped it up today. I might actually have some usable pacman yeast on my hands.

I know it wouldn't really be Dead Guy, but I was just curious to see if anyone had tried with an English Ale Yeast. Seems like the grain bill would compliment the malty characteristics of the English strains.

I brewed it twice this year with BIAB. I'm drinking from my second keg now of my 4/14 transfer. I need to start my fermentation on the batch I brewed last Sunday.

I basically followed the Can you Brew it recipe, and listened to that podcast interview with John Maier...

I am trying to figure out how do we know that Rogue brewery, specifically the brewmaster, uses the Ranger IBU formula? Also I couldn't pick up John mentioning the AA% of the whirlpool hops.
