Kegging up batch #2 of this recipe. Think it's closer to real thing this time.
Will be washing the pacman yeast when done.

Just did a batch yesterday, BIAB. I ended up with 1.072 OG with a 76% efficiency number. I was surprised. I am still dialing in my equipment as this was only my second BIAB. I did get more boiloff than I thought I would so that probably made the difference. But it looks great and I am very excited.

We were just talking about this beer yesterday. I haven't made it in a while, so it's about time. I don't have any pacman yeast, but I have some WLP001 that I may use.

I've never made it with other hops, but centennial and amarillo are far too citrusy for this recipe. Willamette is earthy, and nothing like the hops in the recipe, but may work as a bittering hop.

Made this along time ago. It's been bottled for probably 6 months. Grabbed one out of the case warm and it is almost identical tasting to the real deal. So I thru a 2 sixers in the fridge. Once cold it has a terrible off flavor not sure what it is. But taste perfect warm.

Dead Guy is one of my favorites...going to brew today for a homebrew Oktoberfest party in 5 weeks. I'm planning on 1-2 weeks in primary with another week in secondary (3 weeks total) then let it mellow in a keg for another 2 weeks. Do you think that will be enough time? I'm using Pacman that I harvested from a bottle of Brutal Bitter and stepped up 3 times to a 1L starter. I'll let the gravity determine when I'll move it to secondary...I just hope it will be ready in time.

Looking forward to this one...worst case scenario, it'll be ready for the Cal-Oregon game in November.

I though 'secondaries' were dead. Why secondary?

Maybe they are...i'm a NOOB! This is my 6th batch, 3rd that is from a recipe off HomeBrewTalk. I've been reading through the forums and seeing a lot of contradictory statements, and my first 3 kits suggested using a secondary.

Should I leave it in primary for 3-4, then condition in the keg for 1-2? My main question remains...do you think it'll be ready in 5 weeks?
