I'll give propogation a try. Do you use a step method to propogate? I assume you use the grain bill and hop schedule outlined in eschatz recipe?

Yes and Yes

I stepped it up once from 300ml to 1200ml after the first 48 hours, then went 48 more hours before pitching the yeast. I had violent fermentation when I woke up in the morning.

So from bottle culture to pitch allow 4-5 days? Culture Tuesday and brew on Saturday? Can the yeast be refrigerated after pitchable amount is obtained?

Just brewed this one up yesterday.. my pre-boil gravity was a bit on the low side (1.038 preboil -> 1.054 postboil) so i dropped my bittering addition down to keep the BU:GU in line... used the extra hops (.25 oz) in the flavor addition. I can't wait, I am sure this is going to be awesome!

I'm planning to try this recipe this weekend. Anyone did a comparison between Edwort's IPA with this one? One difference I noted is Vienna vs Munich. I have both, and I want to try this IPA to see the difference in malt flavoring.

That's about right. I don't know about refrigeration as I've never tried that.

Yes it can be refrigerated. I have a second gen, and another HBT member who I did a yeast "grant" to that told me this thing really took off and is aggressive.

Well I must say that Danstar Nottingham is a real "kicker". I have never had Wyeast or White Labs have such a feroucious fermentation. I'm slightly concerned about the fermentation temperature. The carboy is in the basement, around 68, degrees but the air inside is carboy is 74-75. I just don't want the banana smell as reported by others when using Danstar. I moved the carboy into the mechanical room where I might get another degree or two cooler to help keep temperature down. Lots of fun.

I ordered one of Darrin Roe's stir plates and I'll be cultivating from a TH bottle for my next batch.

Brewed this a month ago, got it carbing in the kegerator now. I'm afraid it will be gone before I get it fully carbed...it's REALLY good, and I've been double-sampling every time I take a hydro sample, or check the carbing.

So I was thinking I'd better get started on another batch, good thing I went to all the trouble to harvest the yeast from that sixer for the first batch and...doh!

Somehow, when I kegged the first batch, I got it in my head that the yeast was an already twice-used cake of S-05. No point in saving that, right? So down the drain it went

Oh, well, looks like I'll have to drink another sixer of the real deal

Anyway, I've never had a "regular" beer, but this might be it.

I've been hearing so many good things about this recipe I have to try it now...

I think I might brew this one and possibly Ruination as well... from Brew 365
