Do I need to use priming sugar for the bottles or will the Hazelnut extract work as the priming sugar? I was just going to add the sugar (if needed) and the hazelenut into my bottling bucket.
Yeah definitely still use priming sugar if you're bottling otherwise you'll end up with some very flat beer. I keg all my stuff and force carbonate so I failed to mention that.
Also, don't worry about getting that exact yeast strain. I think that's the only time I used it but I've heard some mixed things on it since then. Any clean American strain (WLP001, Wyeast 1056, US-05) will work, or you could even use a British strain if you wanted a little more breadiness and richness.
