headbanger - please post your DDGA recipe. Per an email from a brewer at Rogue, Pacman is the yeast.

I brewed the extract kit which I ordered directly though the rogue website and it came with candy that as added with 5 minutes left.

I've never seen it on anybody's clone, but just thought I would toss that out there. Came out great, btw.

Good luck!

I'm thinking of just adding around 2-3lbs of sugar (10g batch) to the DGA recipe... If I can't get my hands on some pacman (haven't been able to find any yet) I'll probably rack the wort onto an abbey ale cake that's in primary with a Lefe clone now. Either way, I'll let you know what I end up doing and how it turns out. Thanks for the info

So for Beersmith, do you put in 6 gallon batch, or 5 gallon batch?

6 gallon should make the numbers match up. Beersmith 2 makes some assumptions that screw with other numbers but that's how I still formulate my recipes.

Couple quick notes:

First, I couldn't get a hold of Pacman, so I went with 1056.

Second, I'm not sure exactly what I did wrong, but I came in real low on my OG (1.055). I'll keep an eye on it and let you know how it turns out.

It might be a crush problem, also did you notice that it's a 90 minute boil? If you didn't sparge enough for a 90 minute boil that would alter your efficiency for the worse. Boil off rate is another issue with larger beers like this.
