Default Trying a 90 min clone

I got a 90 min DFH clone that I want to try. My LHBS didn't have the exact hops, so we made some substitutions. I doubt it will be exact, but it should turn out a pretty good beer.

My question, it has a 1.080 OG. Do I absolutely have to aerate before pitching? I'm not set up to aerate yet. I'm doing it as a partial boil w/ steeping grains. I have everything I need, but don't plan on getting an aerate system quite yet, and I'd like to brew on Saturday. If I pour from my pot into the primary, then fill w/ water to the 5.25 gal mark, will this be sufficient?

when you transfer to the primary, pour the wort through a coarse strainer. This should do the trick.

We did a high IBU IIPA last weekend (95 IBU roughly), extract with grains, and didn't aerate just poured the wort into pre-chilled water for aeration, and pitched a nicely smacked pack of pacman on top.

I think the OG was 1.072 if I remember right

No problems at all.

Great!! Thanks. I'll do both, strainer, and into cooled water. Just to be on the safe side.

I also put plastic wrap over the the mouth of my carboy and apply preasure to the opening (as to not let anything spill out) then I turn it on it's side and roll it around for a long time maybe 10-15min. this seems to do the trick. have a good brew!

Yup, "rock the baby" too. I used to use a non-drilled stopper and put a blanket or something soft under the carboy, and shake that carboy until your arm falls off. Normally 5min or so is enough if you shake it really good. I vent some more air in everyonce in a while too so that more 02 gets in there.

I transfer my wort through a strainer then give my carboy a quick shake by rolling it on the outside bottom edge...seems to yield great results.

I use the transfer through a strainer method (I'm not ready to deal with aeration systems yet). I'd also recommend making a large starter.

I spin my carboy around on the ground just hard enough to get the wort swirlin on the inside then i lift my hand from the top and continue to spin, this way it gets fresh air from the outside.

At least this is my thinking..

Since you're doing a partial boil anyway, it stands to reason that the unboiled water should have plenty of O2 disolved in it. I think you'll be fine.

By the way, if this is the DFH 90 from the BYO clone edition, it is an excellent recipe!
