Sounds good to me. The balance of this beer is pretty nice as is, but some dry hops would take it to another level. All I did was primary for 3 weeks, bottle and cellar for a week, then cold conditioned for a week. Simple as that.

This being only the 2nd beer I've ever made, I cannot believe how fantastic it turned out. I chose this because I like Red Rocket from Bear Republic but, after this one, I'm not sure I like that anymore!
My LHBS told me they had it all in stock and then subbed Special B and Oat Malt for the Golden Naked Oats but, after tasting, I guess I can forgive them ;-)
I think I will always have this in the rotation. I just might want to play with the hop schedule to smooth out the bitterness just a smidge (just my preference). It's already way smoother than Red Rocket and I love the mouthfeel. I can't wait to brew it with the Golden Naked Oats.
Everyone I have given this to has loved it. I'm waiting on feedback from a neighbor who used to brew for Lost Coast, but I think he's going to love it.
The problem I have with this recipe is that it's making me want to jump up too 11g batches! Thanks Yooper for the recipe and all the advice along the way. You ROCK!

I brewed this last week. Had to make a couple substitutions. I used flaked oats instead of golden naked, and used nugget for bittering addition. Overshot my OG at 10.70, ground water here in florida isn't very good for chilling so i placed in my chamber and pitched the next morning, 1 quart starter decanted of the denny's fav 50. This was only my 3rd AG batch and if I'm using the calculators right, I'm close to 80% mash Eff. hydrometer sample today was very promising, i'm very much looking forward to drinking this one.

Two weeks @ 64 is fine for this right? Hit fg of 1.015 by about day 5ish. Maybe ill take it out of the chamber and.leave it for another week at room temp to make sure ita completely done. Need room in my chamber for another brew on day 15.

The only problem I ran into is that I over-carbed and the yeast will not stay on the bottom of the bottles. I measured my priming sugar by volume rather than weight (I know... Rookie Mistake) but the Denny's Fav 50 gets in the glass even with a perfect pour. Anyone else run into this issue with Denny's Fav?

I have found this yeast to be less flocculent than others such as US-05. Giving the bottles an extended stay in your fridge helps a lot.
