That one was the night before thanksgiving... I wish I took a picture of the ones we poured at homebrew club the other night because they were crystal clear (and tasted great). I was pretty proud to serve them to people for once. Not bad for my first A/G, BIAB, harvesting yeast from a bottle, making a starter, and dry hopping! lol No wonder I named it "Who Farted". I had no idea how it was going to come out.

Been awhile since I've made this, so I'll be brewing it up on Sunday with RO water, I think I'll plan on a ratio of 2 tsp of CaCl2 and 2 tsp of Gypsum per 5 gal water unless someone has a better recommendation.

I brewed this Friday night, and used RO water. Did a very simple profile with 1 teaspoon Gypsum and 1/2 teaspoon CaCl2. Ill let you guys know how it turns out. If anyone else has brewed this with RO and created a profile that turned out awesome, I would love to know. Thanks.

Getting ready to brew this as my first full boil, and second all grain batch (after getting a mash tun for x-mas).

I don't have a stir plate, nor the ability to culture from the bottles right now, so I'm stuck with dry yeast. Is the 04 from the OP still the dry recommendation for the recipe?

You don't need stir plate to make a starter. Just giving it a swirl every now and then works fine. I have used 1056 with this beer before and liked it better (over s04).

Hmm, still too intimidated to make a starter. I think for this batch I may get a 1056 and assuming it's fresh, just smack it, let it swell, and pitch. For a 5 gallon batch, I'm not too terribly worried about it being stressed.

Then I'll work on harvesting some real THA yeast, learn about starters that way.

The other part of it is that I want to brew this on New Years Day, and I'm not sure I'll be able get the right cell count by Tuesday.

US-05 is dry version of Wyeast 1056 strain and no need for starter.

Thanks. i was trying to google to find a dry sub, but had transposed a few numbers, turns out there is no 1065, which is why I was having issues

With a starter you swirl regularly, you could double your cell count by then. 12-18 hours is all you need and you also get the yeast warmed up for the workout of fermentation. Starters are a great way to get your fermentation kicked off sooner.
