More like three, if you don't want to make a starter!

You don't have a mason jar (or any glass container around a quart), grain or extract, and water? You can make a starter with any ole wort of reasonably low gravity and a container in which to house it. Do a mini mash if need be.

Two packs of S05 will do, cheaper too.

Hmmm, still pretty new at this so I guess I was confused. I thought making a starter required a stir plate. Guess I'll go brush up on how to,make a starter. Thanks for the responses.

I have no stir plate. Just shake or agitate it whenever you walk by.

Brewed this one and dry hopped. Hydro sample tastes great but not as sweet as the original. Might need to mash a bit higher temp next time and/or bump crystal malt.

Yooper,
I'm reading your recipe, thinking about doing this as a Xmas Gift for myself, and I need some advice. Doing an extract, full boil.

A- What would you think of making a minor change in using Xtra light DME for the initial addition and light DME at flame out? would this change the OG at all?

B- As for the hops schedule. What kind of hops for this recipe? Whole leaf or pellets by the weight you described? What should I do for the recipe for whole leaf hops?

C- When do you think I should start this so that this tastes at its prime for Xmas?

This would be my first time adjusting a recipe and getting ingredients, not a full kit already made. I cant wait to do this and say "I MADE THIS ONE!!!" Thanks in advance.
Steve

A. No, the OG should not change a bit.

B. I've used whatever I've had, both with leaf (whole) hops and with pellets. Either is fine.

C. If you pitch enough yeast, and ferment at the optimum fermentation temperature, and are bottling, I'd say about 6-8 weeks before drinking would be the perfect brewday timing.

Just got home from a homebrew club meeting. I brought a bomber of this one with. Rave reviews, including "this is the best ruination clone I've ever tasted". The bomber I used was a Ruination 10th anniversary bottle, and several people swore I bought this at the store. Next time, I'll be doing a 10 gallon batch of this! Yooper rules.
