Brewed. Had to make a couple of changes, c60 at 6oz, and 6 row at 12 oz. This was do to the supplies on hand. Hit all the numbers on this one.

I did the extract version of this with 9 pounds of Pale LME.

I didn't make a start, but just used the Activator pack, and I had fermentation within 10 hours. I was surprised at just how fast fermentation started.

My O.G. was 1.062 or so, and I'm fermenting it at 59-60* in my bathroom. It seems to be pretty stable for now. How cold can I go with Pacman yeast before it goes to sleep?

I've never fermented it below 60 degrees, but if it's active it's fine!

Brewed the AG version of this last weekend. Like a true champion, I managed to unknowingly knock the manifold off my ball valve while mixing in the grains. Nothing like sticking your hand in 155* mash to make a man out of you. I was ~5 points low on my pre-boil gravity, so I supplemented with 8oz DME at 15mins which hit my OG perfectly. I'll have to check out the mill at the homebrew shop, maybe even pick up one for myself to get my crush under control.

I also went to ferment this lower, 62* in the chest freezer. Took a little over a day to show signs of activity with a 1L starter of washed 1056, but it's rippin right along now.

HBS didn't have Saaz, so I substituted Vanguard instead.

Pretty excited for this, Dead Guy is one of my and the girlfriend's favorites. If it turns out even half as good as i'm expecting it'll definitely be in the regular rotation.

Now I just need to get a keg setup going.

I would suggest getting your own mill. I could never hit my numbers with the lbs crushing my grain till I got my own mill.
Mines still going fine , running at 64 degrees. Can' t wait for this one, I figure about 3 weeks till it goes in the keg.

I made the extract version a few weeks ago. My og was 1.074, and my fg was 1.015. Mine tastes borderline too sweet. Does sweetness mellow out at all? I haven't had very many batches turn out overly sweet. Thanks.

I made the extract last October. It took at least five weeks after bottling before the sweetness mellowed out. Hang in there.

More to the point than the gravity readings, what was your mash temperature? The higher you mash = more unfermentables = more sweetness.

Nothing wrong with that finishing gravity. I would give it more than a few weeks before casting any sort of judgement.

Thanks for the replies. I'll just let it sit in the keg for a few weeks and revisit.

Rico567 - i didn't do the all grain version of this recipe; didn't have my mlt yet. I do now though, and will be doing my first ag brew tomorrow
