Yeah this bastard goes gang busters on the airlock no doubt! I didn't have a blowout with this one. However it was a hard fermentation.

Mine came out a golden as well. Here's a pic in some decent light in the bottling tube. It came out very clear I cold crashed and added gelatin.

I've brewed seven of these so far, six extract and an AG, all using Nottingham yeast, and they have all had massive blowoffs. I don't even use an airlock any more, just a hose stuck in the stopper running into a bottle of water.

Just brewed this a few days ago. I did the mini-mash and over shot the OG a bit, 1.058. It is interesting to see so many using Notty. I myself, used the Wyeast Greenbelt, the AHS exclusive yeast

Surprisingly yes. It's a pretty amazing beer. I overshot my OG as well can't remember what it was but it was higher.

I will brew this beer again. Still haven't kicked the keg that I brewed when this first came out. It's a very good beer!

Yeah I'm probably going to end up brewing it again in the future as well.

I wanna give the AG version a shot but add some crystal 60/80/90 to get a bit more body. That was my one glaring critique, and i'm assuming the reason why they included maltodextrine.
