    Thanks for the replies everyone. My friend is in the Dallas area. Hoping he can find some
    Jester King which is what I really want plus any others that may be good.I can get Shiner
    around here in MN.

    A friend is down in Texas right now and wants to bring back some beers for me. He isn't a beer
    guy so I don't want to send him on a wild goose chase for rare beers. I want some Jester King
    wild and so...

    Go with the NB one. That one IIRC has tons of Simcoe dry hop. That is the signature of the
    beer. There is no where near enough hops in the recipe you posted to be a clone of that beer.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I'd thought of using the stronger malt flavor to balance some of
    the bitterness. I'm generally like a bit more malt flavor in my beer than some, so I'll have to

    what color cr...

    The issue is the lines. 1/4" line is way too big. If you must use 1/4" line, then you need at
    least 25-30' of it. That's not a typo- 25-30 feet or so would be required to balance it as a
    minimum. 1/4"...

    mash around 158 and use some carapils. The carapils should help you quite a bit.

    I haven't noticed mash temperature making a huge difference in fermentability either. I have
    been working on some pilot batches lately for a start up brewery and I have been mashing 1.070
    beers at 155...

    I have noticed much higher attenuation also with the 002/1968 strain. I regularly get
    ~80%.Which base malt did you use? Rahr? I have noticed that Rahr malt worts tend to ferment
    nice and dry.You could...
