Columbus is not a sub for Ahtanum, Cascade is as close as your going to get to Ahtanum.

I appreciate the advice, but that was a while ago; this beer is already in bottles. I went with 100% Amarillo and it turned out quite nicely.

I have some Danstar Munich yeast. Would this be a decent yeast to use as a substitution?

I finally got around to brewing this but after reading about the differences between lme and dme I may have a beer that is too light. I went with lme and didn't realize that I needed to up the quantity. Will this turn out extremely bad if I only used 6# of lme?

You should be ok, it'll still be beer. Did you happen to take an OG reading before starting fermentation?

Also, what stage are you at right now? If you're in primary you might be able to boost it by boiling a small amount of water (a qt or so I'd guess), mix in 1lb DME, and toss that sucker in. Just a thought.

my brew shop is out of burtons ale yeast. would S-04 or S-05 work for it?

also I didn't see in the opening post. are you using 6 lbs of DME or 6 lb's of LME?????

Use the S-05 or some Nottingham for best results.

The OP is long gone, but the consensus seems to be that the original recipe meant LME. I used 5# of DME in this recipe with excellent results.
