On a separate note - that hop schedule is busy as hell. What are you expecting to get from .5oz of cascade at 20 minutes? Why do FWH? Why...

You should try emailing the brewer. They've done a couple CYBI episodes for the Brewing Network if I recall, so it seems like they are pretty open about their recipes. Worth a shot!

Oh snap! Great info!!

Maybe someone could degas a sample so we can get a FG? And knowing its 6.8% ABV we can figure out the OG to shoot for?

Is 3711 really their yeast? Cuz with that mash schedule I have a hard time believing it stops at 1.007 - that yeast is insane and eats all the sugars

I don't see much of a point in adding only .5oz chinook at that time - doubt you would taste it in the midst of all those other high-oil hops you're loading up in the end there.

Well 85 is probably calculated and not measured. Utilization gets tricky when you put hops in the whirlpool. It's also widely accepted that late boil hops offer a softer bitterness. Edward obviously...

Yeah mash thick and use more water to sparge. By boiling longer you can sparge more so a longer boil will help you extract more sugars as well.

I was always under the impression he had a higher ratio of chlorides over sulfates in his beers - that's why their bitterness isn't sharp and the mouthfeel is slick/creamy.

Glad to hear the brew...

Well, personally I haven't ever gotten a satisfactory oak flavor from the chips when compared to using cubes - I've only used chips twice. Both times, the flavor was very one-dimensional.

I wouldn't use any yeast found in the Curmudgeon - that beer is high alcohol and the yeast that are in it are likely unhealthy and would probably make for equally poor yeast if you grew them up.
