Ok thanks. I wasn't sure if you could do staters with dry yeast.

I've heard of some major brewers that do that - brew at high gravity and dilute. Perhaps do some and not all?

Merry Christmas everyone! Will be enjoying this beer tonight with friends and family. Be safe tonight. If you drive drunk, I will find you and kick you in the nuts (if you have nuts).

Mine didn't make it by Christmas, but it's good stuff. I bottled it a week ago, and it surprising how quickly the vanilla flavor attenuates and citrus aroma comes out as it conditions. It's been getting better ever day, hopefully it won't peak before too soon.
