I talked to Chris the other day and I think he said it was around 1.090. It's moving a little slow this year.

If I'm not mistaken they used chips for the U1 but got a couple of 5 gallon barrels for U2.

It's still in Yeager's basement, I haven't seen it or tasted it since the day we brewed it. Last I heard or asked, sometime in the fall or late summer, it was 1070-ish and still too sweet. I know the combo to his garage, maybe I'll drive over some day when they're gone, drop a deuce in the master bathroom, light up a stogie and check it out for myself.

That could be fun.

So I think I remember you guys saying you got your first sam adams utopia clone down to like 1.030. So how did you guys get that one to go that low. I might try making 3 gallons of this and pitching on a big yeast cake.

U1 has been a tough act to follow. Not the brewing of it, that part is easy. The fermentation, OTOH, can be tremendously challenging. We've done four and got two of them to ferment fully. The other two are in a state of suspended animation . We might need to follow Capes lead and treat one of the batches like its Ted Williams head and see what happens.
