Brewed this yesterday and the fermentation is so violent i needed the blow off hose on the 6.5 gal bucket. Also toured the brewery right after brewing and the brewer told me they use White Labs California yeast for this beer. I had used wyest 1098 - British Ale earlier in the day. He said it should turn out well.

i bought the stuff today for a partial mash. only thing i'm doing different is using pellets for the boil and whole leaf hops for the dry hopping. never used whole leafs so i'm giddy about that. and i'm using Wyeast 1056

should i make a yeast starter for the partial mash version of this? i'm new to beersmith and it says i need to use 28 smack packs or 10 yeast packs in a starter. obviously something is off. i feel like my equipment is as accurate as i can make it

Yes, with liquid yeast you should almost always make a starter.

i figured out the problem i was having with beersmith. my local HBS told me to change the date of my yeast from 2011 to 2012. i did it and now things are making more sense. fixing to brew this here in a few hours

question about the 1.5 quarts per pound of grain step people use: i use a 30 quart pot with a 5 gallon paint strainer bag for grains. 1.5 gallons if fairly close to the bottom of the brew pot a lot of exposed grain. do people typically use a mash tun for this step?

just want to say thanks for this recipe. this could very well end up being a staple in the Gladiator household. my wife is playing around with ways of making hop soap that smells like this beers aroma. we can't get enough

Brewed the extract version of this yesterday. Hit 1.064 OG, ended up with a bit more wort than expected (had less boil off than expected). I'm going for smaller batches now so a little more than half of my carboy is filled. Anyway, I've never had such a huge krausen, this is crazy.
