Yup its toffee like alright, but I am not sure you are gonna get that with the light version of it, specially considering that the plain carastan is already not so toffee like (special B now thats toffee to the max!). I think Ruination has a good balance between hops and malt, perhaps a mix might be a good idea. That would set you in the right path for such future experiments too.

Its actually not a bad idea, I highly encourage it.

Happy brewing.

I can't remember if it was Stone or Green Flash (thinking green flash) on CYBI mentioning how much they liked the carastan malts in an ipa. Note check: I used the carastan (1.25lb/6g) in a sorta clone of GF west coast ipa with added sorachi ace flavoring hops. It's pretty good, unique flavor. At first I didn't care for it, but with two months on the bottles it's a solid brew.

Wow. Guess that means dry English 007, or as yooper said a well attenuating yeast.

Oh that is really good to know Scottland, much obliged.

Mine did finish a bit lower (1.008) but not too low, thus raising the ABV.

Thanks again. Happy brewing.

They most likely have a +/- 0.5 Plato tolerance, so it's probably either:
1.009-1.011
1.010-1.012
1.011-1.013

But ya, my bomber bottled last month was 1.011. Tasted just like I remember.

This is on my brew schedule for the weekend. I've three different yeasts in the bank and I'm trying to decide on and I want to get the started kicked off Wed.

My Choices are:

WLP039 (Notty)
PacMan
San Diego Super Strain

All of these are high attenuators -- any recommendations?

Mash temp provided Pacman sounds like a winner to me.

I ll try and bring my Ruination on the 11th but it ll be 2 weeks young.

Happy brewing to ya!
