So I currently have 3 gallons of this monster crazy bubbling away in me closet. I didn't have any Denny's on hand so I pitched a packet of S-05. Should be fine. So far, it's a rager!

Just received mine a few days ago! What did you have to do to "prep" your burner? i.e. burn it with nothing on to burn off the paint? How long? Did you boil water? Or just let it burn with nothing on it?

The night before my first brewday with it, I hooked up some propane and made the air and gas valve adjustments to get the flame where I wanted it. After that I just used it just like normal.

Does $50+ for the ingredients for the extract sound right? Not including the hops even, I have what I need in the freezer. I was just off pricing it out from AHS and was surprised at how expensive the DME was, also I have to buy more DME than I need because of the quantities.

Oddball/rookie/Newb fermenting question for this beer...

This beer seemed to kind of abruptly go from a relatively violent fermentation - probably 2-3 bubbles per second from the blowoff tube, all kinds of swirly action in the carboy & about 3" of krausen for a solid 2 days - to a much more subdued fermentation (say 1 bubble every 10-15 seconds, & a thin creamy looking krausen) in what seemed like about 4-6 hours.

I'm not at all worried about it since it's still got 3 weeks to ferment/age before I'm going to do anything with it - but is that 'normal' for this beer/style of beer?? Just found it kinda intriguing since none of my other beers have done this...

It was kinda like all the yeast saying "Ok, that was delicious... but now I'm full and want to go take a nap." - all at once.

FWIW, I used White labs European ale (WLP011) w/ no starter. My OG was actually high (1.062) due to a slightly excessive boil off and getting better efficiency than I was expecting (77% for my second AG ever... ... but I planned for 70%...)

Sounds way high to me. But I don't order from AHS. How much extra DME are you getting? DME and LME is expensive. That can definitely drive up the costs. Plus, remember you are probably paying a shipping cost.

Honestly that sounds like all of my fermentations. All but my Belgian Triples and Kolschs- both of which act like they never stop fermenting.

For AHS I have to buy 5lbs for the 4.5lbs of Amber $20, and 3lbs of Wheat for the 1.5lbs of wheat $12, plus the tax and not including shipping.
Then about $9 for the grain/lactose and $8 for the yeast (with the yeast nutrient).
Then shipping.

I guess its the DME that is killing me here, most kits I've ordered for a medium gravity brew like this one have been under $50 shipped.
