Turned out very well, the syrups really bring out a well balanced flavor

Well, after much waiting, it's all done. Here's the first small pull off the keg. It turned out beautiful! Bear in mind, this is also the non-imperial recipe I came up with. However, big thanks to Morkin for his. I used your recipe as the base for this, and it wouldn't have turned out nearly as well as it did without it.

"Brewed" this up tonight and it seemed to go well but there were a bunch of firsts I hadn't thought about before diving in. I opted out of using Ph stabilizer, wasn't sure if that was smart or not. I did the no boil method and wasn't sure if I needed to bring it up passed 150 to stop conversation or even higher before cooling it down. I ended up raising to about 157 for 15 minutes and called it a day. My starter smelled ready but I wasn't sure what it should look like.

Its currently sitting around 113 with my fermwrap heater. Guess we'll see where this goes and post results.

Pictures are what my starter looked like. I drained 1/3-1/2 cup of liquid from it.

Well mine has been on lacto for just under 48 hrs and I'm pretty sure that it took! I did my own starter from the OP and it seems as though it is working great! Pitching the yeast tonight.

I just brewed this yesterday. Thanks for all the great info, the starter worked just like expected. I kept it in the garage to keep warm, not too hard to do in south Texas. So far so good.
