S-05 works with this as well, correct?
No carapils or centennial ?! What kind of brew shop Is that ? Tell me where it is so I know never to go there!
Carapils or dextro malt is for body and head retention. 2row has none of those properties. Centennial is pretty crucial IMO to this beers wonderful flavor. I use centennial in about 80% of my brews now. You could use EKG but it will certainly change the flavor ..
S05 works great in this beer, as will any clean fermenting yeast. I use this beer as a starter for my big beers with S05.
