Default NB Phat Tyre Extract w/ New Belgium Yeast

I just had my first glorious encounter w/ Fat Tire Ale. I loved it so much that I decided to try and make it as my next batch.

Has anyone here used this kit with the New Belgium yeast? I know the kit itself has been around for a while, but I haven't heard any outcomes with the new yeast.

Yeah, i'v got the AHBS kit with the fat tire yeast bottle conditioning now, i made sure to wash and save my yeast from the primary as i think i'll be making this one again.

I'v never had the real thing, but thankfully my brother is taking a trip out west after christmas so he will be bringing me back some so i can compare.

It taste like warm biscuits or nuts, or something. Maybe heaven.

I would re-evaluate my religious beliefs if I could be promised an endless supply of Fat Tire.

But I guess that would eventually get boring, so maybe no re-evaluation is necessary.

damn. I just ordered ingredients to make a fat tire clone I'm planning on brewing the week after christmas. I didn't know about that yeast. I was just going to use 1056 or a packet of Nottingham. I just bought 2 packs of 1056 the other day. I'll have to call my LHBS to see if they have it.
