Looks delicious to me. What are your concerns with the hop schedule? should be a really aromatic and flavorful brew.

That is what I was shooting for. I've just never worked with this amount of hops in one beer.

Thanks

Got all the ingrediants for this beer. Its suppose to be a 1.089 beer, so I know I need a big starter.

I did a 2 step starter, 1.5L each. The first step went smoothly. Then I refrigerated, decanted and pitched my 2nd step. Then it took off. It was going crazy and this morning I awoke to yeast on my kitchen counter. Not a ton but enough to puddle up in a few places. I would say I lost a total of 200 ML of my starter.

My question now is, what do I do? Should I do a third step to make sure I have enough yeast?

YeastCalc says I will need 333 Billion cells for this beer, and after 2 steps I should have 455 cells.

What would you guys do?
