    okay, so its been a while and this beer is long gone, but I figured I'd let everyone know it
    came out fantastic - maybe the best beer I've made so far. That being said, it didn't taste
    dead on at all....

    Wow, I just came on here to look for a Heady Topper recipe having no idea it was some
    mysterious unattainable holy grail....has anyone come up with a recipe thats halfway similar
    without getting too f...

    I'm trying it this week too - using this recipe: couldn't find Horizon either (not that I
    looked all that hard), so I'm subbing Magnum instead. I'm also going to dry hop with simcoe
    instead of glaci...

    I'm thinking of brewing this soon - anyone have any new recipe tweaks since this thread
    happened in 2011?btw, utopeya, I noticed you're in Providence too - in case you haven't found
    it yet they have S...

    Ah that makes sense that the extract has something to do with it. One more reason to switch to
    all grain! (which I'll be trying out for the first time this weekend!)Two more questions - how
    do I figur...

    1.010 came from the recipe - one of yours, actually! (By the way I have brewed a couple of your
    recipes and they have been excellent, I'm sure this will be no exception!)Actually reading the
    recipe is...

    how about for an IPA? my FG is 1.017, should have been 1.010. Does anyone know why this
    happens? Is it related to temp somehow? (I think my mash temp was a little lower than it should
    have been, ferme...

    I just tried this out without the ss washer inside (couldn't find them
    anywhere)......definitely leaky. I saw a few of you said you ended up having to buy 5/8" ss
    washers in large quantities - I'd lik...

    Stick your finger in it, if it kinda hurts you're probably there :drunk:hah! Thanks for that
    one....I guessed on the sparge water, now I'm halfway through the boil and debating running out
    to buy a th...

    Don't you have a cooking thermometer in the kitchen you can sanitize and use in a
    pinch?Nope....one draw back to a vegetarian household, never had a need for one.I guess I could
    go out and buy one...
