Just mashed in!! I turned this into an 8 gallon batch to max out my equipment... but, i kinda over-maxxed it. I should have added water and grain in two or three separate batches. Oh well, it's all (mostly) in there now. Now comes the waiting...

Ended up with about 7.5 gallons of 1.080 wort. This was the first time using a banjo burner and it really made all the difference... with a good vigorous boil, I got a much, much better cold break. I brewed Sacc's BPA last weekend as a starter beer, and split the slurry and pitched it into two separate ale pails. Unfortunately I didn't quite get the slurry divided up evenly, so one got a bit more than the other... but they both took off pretty quickly. Within 3 hours they were bubbling faster than anything I've ever brewed.

The krausen had already fallen by the time I got home from work yesterday. It's at a very slow bubble now. I moved it to a warmer room today to make sure it dries out ok.
In case anyone finds this in a WLP 570 search
I just pulled a sample of the Pale ale starter, 1.015. My mash was pretty messed up so I'm not too worried about the high gravity. The sample tasted pretty good, slightly tart and phenolic

The carboy hasn't had any activity for a week. The active fermentation was essentially done in 4 days. It was a very vigorous fermentation. Looks like i'll be bottling and brewing on saturday.

FWIW, my brew with the Wyeast Private Collection Flanders Golden Ale went pretty slowly but that may be due to the timing of the sugar additions. I started adding 1# per day after only maybe 30 hours of strong fermentation. I brewed it about 19 days ago and it's just now starting to clear.

I'm thinking about going ahead and bottling this up soon so I can free up my carboys. Should I consider adding yeast to the bottling?

EDIT: Holy crap! I just took a gravity reading and it's down to 1.000! I made booze water. It was at 1.011 when I transferred to the secondary a month ago. And it tastes mighty boozy.

Finally got the first 5 gallons of 10 brewed this weekend. Pitched a 4L starter of the Flanders Golden yeast. It was going like mad only a few hours in. My only hiccup was that I realized I was out of hop sacks. I tried straining through a metal mesh strainer, but it got clogged up quickly. I ended up with a lot more hop material in the fermenter than I would have liked. I'm going to start my sugar additions tomorrow, then try to get it off the trub for bulk aging.

Does anyone have a plan for bottling? I figure I'll learn from everyones mistakes since I'm a little behind. I want to bottle condition in Belgian/champagne bottles. Do you think the yeast will have enough oomph to give good carbonation at this high gravity and a few months aging? Would it be a better idea to try and bottle ~2 months in?

I just kegged mine (brewed 10/11/09) and it was at 1.004. My FFT was 1.008 and it had no sugar but I only let it go for a few days. This yeast seems to just keep going and going.

I actually mashed high to try and prevent this but this yeast is a monster.

Just add some yeast at bottling... you don't need to use the primary yeast, a yeast like S-04 in the bottling bucket would work great. I plan to bottle all 10 gallons in Belgian bottles with corks in the spring using half a sachet of S-04 per 5 gallons. I'll be aiming for about 3.2 volumes of CO2.

I'll be making up a starter with the flanders golden ale yeast I saved and adding a bit at bottling to carb mine up. I'm afraid anything else wouldn't be able to handle the 13.3% ABV it's sitting at and that FGA yeast doesn't seem to quit.

I'm planning on force carbing to 3 or 4 volumes, then setting the psi at 1 or 2 and dribbling into 22 oz bottles. Hopefully the bottles don't explode...
