I think I'll hit my local supplier and see if they have dry yeast and add a bit. Sounds best to just add a few and not risk it. Thanks all for the advice!

Yes, getting some sediment by 1-2 weeks. I clean the bottles by soaking in oxyclean, then thoroughly rinse them. Then I run them through a dish washer with no soap on light wash and steam sanitize...

So moral of the...

I was under the impression that doubles were maltier than a tripel. Doubles also tend to be slightly darker. ABV's can be similar, but are typically slightly higher in a tripel too.

I'm not an expert, but I think the butterscotch is caused by diacetyl. I think that often occurs when it ferments too high of a temp. It may have also been pulled off the yeast too early.

This.

Unless it's an IPA that can handle being extra bitter, stick to 2.5-3.5 gallons. The hops impact a ton more bitter flavoring on the beer when you do a 5 gallon that it's very noticeable in...

I usually have a few beers while doing it, so not like work at all :)
