Side by side split batch comparison: S-05 (American Ale Yeast) and WLP 810 (San Francisco Lager yeast). WLP actually preferred at beer tasting by a small margin of about 20 already buzzed drinkers. Interesting.... it is crisp and hoppy, I still prefer the ale. I would however stick to Wyeast 1056- seems cleaner and "rounder" to me. Both are delicious.

I developed a similar recipe for my Imperial IRA. Fermented with Pacman. Just got a 40 on it at Spirit of Free Beer. My favorite home brew--malty, hoppy, and strong enough to savor @ 8.25% ABV.

You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Yeah! More beer joy!

wfowlks, so glad you like it! You may be the first "phenomenal" comment, I feel that way too, especially since I am drinking a pint right now

Piratwolf, That is great! 40 is a great score. What were your tweaks? 8.25% must have been 1.080 to 1.085 range?

@TimBrewz--my 2-row/Munich ratio is about 2:1, some slightly different crystal malts, and an OG/FG of 1.084/1.021. I think the Pacman was key, though. 1st time was Nottingham, and it was too malty. The Pacman subdues the malts and carried the hops just enough to balance the two nicely.

Tim - is that pic from your latest batch which is an even split of C-40 and 90 ?

I just reread this thread again since I plan to brew this over the weekend. I know crytal has been tweaked a couple times but the rest of the grain bill remains intact.

I was thinking about going with 8oz each C-40 and C-120. (5 gallon batch)
What do you think? I guess you gotta start somewhere and see how you like it.

Going to be all Falconer's Flight after the bittering addition.

Yes, Dustbow, that is the latest batch. C40 and C90 in equal parts. So .5 lb each for 5 gallon batch. It is really nice, complex enough to be interesting and smooth enough to make drinking a little too easy I prefer this ratio of crystal malts.

Falconer's is a great choice.

Also, I just noticed your yeast comparison. The first batch I did was Nottingham, and I liked it a lot. The Pacman version came out much cleaner, and gives great balance, but I feel like all the edges of the flavors are softened or rounded just a touch.

However, I seem to be the only one. I was lucky enough to get to pour two kegs of my beer at our club tent at the Norfolk Beer Fest last weekend, and everyone from beer n00bs to a couple of local pro brewers said they really liked the balance of malt and strong hop flavor. Looks like I'm sticking w/ the Pacman
