Using wlp-001 is the more accurate choice if you want clone the original recipe.

Cheers!

Fired this one up yesterday for my second AG.

I mashed with 4 gallons and sparged with another 4. I had a lot more loss during mash because I ended up with just under 6 in my pot. I added about another gallon. I think I also lost more due to evap since it was colder with a nice breeze since I ended up with just about 4 gallon in my carboy with a grav of 1.086! I haven't pitched yet since I just started the starter yesterday and wanted to give it time to get going esp since the OG is so high.

Now I'm contemplating adding a gallon of water and stirring the crap out of it with my wine wisk then pitching...

I'm thinking if I don't water it down its going to need ages to mellow out...

Any advice?

Took a reading two weeks or so ago and it was down to 1.028. I gave it stir and let it sit. It started bubbling again last week. Gave it a reading today and were down to 1.014!!

It tastes awesome, smells delicious, and is going into bottles tonight!
