Going to brew this tonight. I should have an OG of 1.087 a FG of 1.024, and end up around 8.25% abv. I have the 11.5g packs of safale us-05 and will pitch dry.
It is. And thank you!
Actually, would it hurt if I put two 11.5 packs in?
Nope, that'll be fine. If I were you i'd use two packs, and I would definitely rehydrate (not pitch dry).
Edit: don't just take my word for it. Here is why to rehydrate:http://www.howtobrew.com/section1/chapter6-5.html
