I live in Alaska (Fairbanks specifically). To my knowledge, we don't have any LHBS here that carries liquid yeasts. The closest place to get liquid yeasts is 400 miles south.

So I'm thinking to sub the WLP008 with something, preferably a dry yeast. Any thoughts on how Safale US-05 would do with this beer?

Well, US-05 will be fine. WLP008 is a really basic strain, no surprising characteristics or flavors. I think White Labs calls it East Coast Ale yeast. For the sake of convenience/time/price I think US-05 or Nottingham would be fine.

Are you using the zest of fresh oranges and lemons? So this is a matter of shaving the peel off to get the zest???

I have obviously never done a recipe like this with zest...can you explain or point me to a place where it explains it...

I want to brew this weekend!

Thanks!

Oh yeah,......when you say "late addition" on the DME....is this adding for just the last 20o minutes of boil? So 30% dme GOES IN INITIALLY THEN AT 40 MINUTES INTOI BOIL PUT IN THE REST OF THE DME?

(Sorry aboiut caps...hit caplock accidnetally....)

3 lbs Light DME, 3.3lbs Wheat DME, late addition
Full Boil
Zest from 2 lemons
and WLP 008 instead of 001

FG is 1.015 like you expected. I LOVE this beer. I can't wait to drink it out in the hot sun. I can honestly say this my frist brew that I'm completely satisfied with. Thanks for recipe!
I brewed up this version a few weeks ago (accidentally did 3.3 light and 3 wheat) and it's going into the bottle today. I tasted a sample of it and it was GREAT, I can't wait to get this bottle conditioned!

Follow up as I finish my last bottle, this turned out as a great well-rounded brew. My friends who don't go for the higher abv styles I usually make claimed it my greatest success, and I had my first "commissioned" brew session to recreate a few cases.

Hey I would like to make this tomorrow but only have a 16 quart stockpot. What kind of downfalls will that have on this turns out?

None, if you're clever. Search "late extract addition" on HBT and read up on the subject.

Cheers,

Bob
