Hops schedule was:
.5oz @ FWH
.75oz @ 60min
1oz @ 15min
1oz @ 5min
1.25oz @ 1min
(all pellet at 9.1%)
Plus I Dogfish styled about .25oz between 30 minutes and flameout. I had that little extra left over from an earlier brew and figured what the heck. I'll probably use 1oz for dry hopping, love that fresh hop aroma.

Kinda bummed I missed the whirfloc, it does a great job. I may try some gelatin before kegging, haven't used that yet and wanted to give it a shot anyway.

Yeah, we'll have to compare notes and/or arrange a trade to see how they both turned out.

Nicely done, azscoob! Better luck next time Brewphish.

A trade sounds like it could be fun. I'm pretty new to the game so not sure my product will be worth sharing.

I'm going to give both gelatin & whirlfloc a shot. Since I'm doing BIAB there's a good likelihood that I'll have some cloudiness.

One question: why even wait to pitch yeast to your starter? Would it cause problems to give the yeast an extra 24 hours or so to chew on the starter?

I dont know what the benefit to waiting is. I've read of folks who pitch at high krausen and others who wait till the starter finishes up then decant and pitch. I began the whole process of creating a starter last Saturday. I suppose if you were working with something store bought you wouldn't need as long as I took. Hell I could have probably done a better job of getting my starter built up. I had to step up from a bottle harvest so I waited, decanted, and fed it more low gravity wort. Then decanted again since it was almost 2L and pitched that late last night.

Who knows if I'll have any problems. I've got airlock activity so I must have done something right. Now the hard part: waiting.

@Brewphish - Got my Dead Ringer IPA (2 Hearted Ale Clone) into the fermentor last night! When's yours slated to be wrapped up?

Brewed on 5/28, will dry hop around 6/18 for 7 - 10 days, so should be kegged and carbed by the 4th of July. I'm sure it will still be a little green then, but I don't have the patience to let this one sit any longer than that
