You haven't done this yet? Did you do my Stone 15th? Either way, this is really, really close. Some with easy access to the real deal seem to think it is better. My personal opinion....it kicks ass. If you are a local, I will be flying in for DLD if you want to try some of mine or trade some beers let me know.....also, if you haven't checked the big thread, the link is in the first post of this one. Lots of people have brewed it and posted results.

Skeezer, yes I made your stone 15th and it was amazing only a few bottles remain. I also have acquired the ingriedients for this recipe as well. We found a pound of citra at the LHBS. To be brewed as soon as possible we are going to make a ten gallon batch and use s-04 for the yeast.

As for DLD I tried getting tickets but of course I was unable to get any. I am from south Dakota and only am able to get three Floyd's because of a friend that comes up here four times a year and I love all of their stuff . Have fun at DLD! We need to take a stab at cloning that next!

Skeezer, how do you ferment 6 gallons of wort? Don't most people have 6.5 gallon carboys or buckets?

I usually lose about 1/2g due to trub, so get 5.5 into the fermenter.

Brewed the partial mash of this Wednesday with 5lbs of 2row. Used 3lbs of DME. Had to do one hop sub with motueka as LHBS only had 4oz of citra on hand. Missed my og 1054. Think it the way I sparge not getting all my sugars. I just went out to get parts for all grain mash tun cooler set up looking forward to trying AG. Made a started with 1056 and had bubbles within 3 hours. Last night (3 am) blew the lid off. Cleaned out air lock and lid and by this morning was ready to pop again. Stuck a blow off on now bubbling like mad!!! Never had a brew go this wild before. Brought I growler of this from 3floyds last October was fantastic. Can't wait to get this in a keg!

Hi Skeezer, first of all thanks for the post and compliments on the results. Regarding the choice of yeast I wanted to ask you what do you think of the Wyeast London 1318 ale III. It should be similar to the S04: fruity, gentle, well-balanced and with a hint not as sweet as 1968, that produces distinctly malty beers with higher FG.
I would also ask how do you behave with carbonation: CO2 volumes and types of sugar used.
I care to have your own opinion before brewing 6 gal of this nectar
