Try WLP090. It flocs AND attenuates better than 001 with the same clean flavor profile. I regularly hit 84-86% attenuation and have clear beers without any special treatment, other than careful racking, time and patience.

@crazyirishman, scott mentioned he used gelatin to clear up his previous batch of younger.

Ya, I gelatin every batch. I'm kind of picky in that sense, but I like commercial quaility, bright beer. Even with gelatin, US05 takes 3-4 weeks to drop dead clear. 001 gets me there much quicker.

Ya, I've used 090 a couple times when it first came out. I like it a lot. Ferments fast, attenuates well, and ya, it flocs better than 001. I've got a vial in the fridge I'm going to pitch into a Scottish 60/- tomorrow. I'm going to use that pitch for a few batches.

I brewed my first attempt at PTY this past Sunday using Scottland’s recipe. I mashed at 148 rather than the two-step mashed proposed his second recipe simple because of the volumes and difficulty of a two-step infusion mash. I also stayed with 1.33 lbs of sugar and used a 2L starter of WLP090. Starting gravity was 1.089. This morning the gravity is around 1.036. I started fermentation at 64 which is a little warmer than Scottland recommendation with WLP001, but it looks like WLP090 likes it a bit warmer. After checking gravity this morning I raised that to 66. Looking good so far.

I took Scottland’s recommendation from his website and purchased hop extract from http://www.yakimavalleyhops.com/. I tried to purchase hopshots from Northern Brewer, but they screwed up my order and didn’t ship it out after five days. I canceled that order and got the extract much cheaper from Yakima Valley Hops. The only challenge there was that the extract came in a tin can and I used 35 ML syringes from Petco because I didn’t want to wait for the proper syringes available on Ebay. One of the syringes came undone and I ended up with hop extract all over my hand. What a mess and the smell of hops on my hand for a day or two

Nice! WLP090 should treat you well. Let us know how it turns outs

What eBay auction did you find the syringes at?

I bought them around a year ago. I don't remember. Search "luer lock syringe" on ebay. You'll find a bunch. You can usually get like 100x 20ml syringes for $20 or so. That'll last you a longgggg time.

Couple quick updates. I racked to secondary on Thursday. I'm playing around with one of those dry-hoppers from Stainless Brewing. Pretty cool. Anyway, I cleaned and sanitized it, put the hops in, and tossed it in keg, then gassed the keg from the liquid out post for awhile. Then i racked the beer over. There should have been pretty minimal O2 pickup, if any.

I took a sample today, it's tasting right on target. Third round of dry hops go in tomorrow, and the final dose on Friday. I'm getting exciting.

Cool I just ordered one of the dry hoppers too. Are you going to remove the spent hops as you go along?
