I try to keep between 64-68. The one time I let it get hot, it was naaaaasty.

Back when I first brewed this, you could still get 56, but not anymore. 5 is a decent substitute.

Hope it comes out great for you! Plan on a good long conditioning time

Just ordered all the ingredients for the OG Jester Recipe from AHS. Pretty stoked!

In other news, I'm also working on my keezer build this month. Finally found a 9cu ft for $50 on CL. So it has begun. Obviously going to use Jester's keezer as a model too. Sooo is there anything else that I should know about that I can copy you with? haha

Big thanks again for being awesome Jester.

Thanks Jester, I've been searching for the original recipe. Guess I have 2 brews to do (while I still have some of the real mtn ale left!).

Brew completed last night. Followed Jesters ingredients and method(s) except for couple of personal additions (like by aerating wort by pouring the 2.5gals from brew pot to ale pale several times).

Currently very happy yeast and stable at 72*

Since the Shed closed here in Stowe and the brewery has been acquired and moved to Otter Creek in Middlebury VT, I figured I'd try this out. The 'real' version was pretty good, one of their better beers. As for the style, I believe they described it as a Barley wine.

Brewed this last weekend using 05 yeast. Hydro sample tasted pretty good. I'll post back in a few weeks with how it turned out
