Anyone else get this?
Def sounds like sanitizer still in the fermenter. After 3 weeks of conditioning just tapped this last night and whoa. This brew is no joke. Named accordingly!!!!

Thanks a lot for the recipe, BarleyWater!! Just brewed this one today. It smells fantastic. First time that I brewed in the cold. The snow on the ground made for cooling the pot quickly. Then I threw in my first blow-off tube, since its my first big beer.

Lotsa firsts going on in this brew. Thanks again for the recipe.

I'm tinkering around with an uber imperial IPA, and I was wondering, did anyone use a starter for this? And if so did it get the results you wanted? I'm looking at a yeast pitching rate calculator and it's saying that I'd need like 5 vials of White Labs and 4 liters of starter and that seems a little insane.

How much water should I start with for this recipe? I have a 5 gal brew kettle and will be increasing to 9lbs of DME

Brewed this last weekend and I had the same issue (or non-issue). Some of it was StarSan foam, but the wort was really foamy too, especially because I racked it through a strainer funnel into my better bottle. I've heard that means it's well-aerated and just pitched my 2L starter into the foam. About 12 hours later I had nuclear-powered fermentation going. After that, there was a constant stream of krausen through my blowoff tube for the next 24 hours.

All's looking good now. Plan to add the dry hop three weeks in, and then bottle after week four.

Btw, subbed out the williamette for cascade hops, and used 11lbs of LME. My OG ended up at 1.07. Anyone get good results with different hops?

I used this recipe as a guideline, changed out the warrior for cascade, changed out the 10 minute Willamette addition for cascade, and changed the dry hop to citra. It's going to be super citrusy iipa, but it's exactly what I wanted. Also changed it to 9# LDME and added a little roasted grain for color.
All pellet hops except for when I dry hop it. Probably dry hop after 4 weeks for about 10 days.
12 hours after pitching the us-05 it has crazy fermentation going!!!

Bottled my batch 2.5 two weeks ago and it came out excellent. It's getting great reviews from others and continues to improve every time I try it. Definitely on the bitter end of the spectrum as expected, but still very drinkable... perhaps a little too drinkable. Would definitely brew this recipe again, maybe with a slight hop variation just to mix things up.
