This is next on my list a well and I'm thinking of using WLP007 instead of WLP002. Anyone go this route?

Just bottled mine Thursday night. Waiting for it to carb up, might have a taste tomorrow!

I've got all the ingredients for this on hand, been waiting to brew it for the last month, but something always comes up when I want to brew (kids sick, wife sick, me sick, negative degree weather, that sort of crap).

#RunningFarmer... you used S04 and it came out tasty. I'm debating using either S05 or S04, since I have both of those on hand. Any input on which of these would be better to use (in your opinion)?

True, but my problem is with doing a starter before hand, since it seems every time brew day comes around, someone's sick or something else pops up. I guess technically I could put the starter in the fridge until I can brew, but then I have no idea when the next day I can brew is. Hence the desire to use a dry yeast.

I used S04 - it was wonderful.

I have been sticking my starters in the fridge so i can decant all that weak beer off the yeast. I spend way too much time working to get the recipe the way I want it to dump 3L of starter wort in. This weekend is yeast growing weekend and will be making starters and mashing/pressure canning some wort for said starters.

so4 was fine just chase up the fermentation temp because mine left it a little sweet. 64* was where we started and did not bump the temp until it was almost done. Next time after two days I will add 1 degree a day to finish. with that said I love so5
