Ok so I brewed this thing up yesterday. Used T-58 yeast instead as its been recommended fairly highly. I left home shortly after it made its way into the fermenter. Got home 4 hours later and the air lock was already going nuts.
Bumped up the sugar to 15% and subbed candi for cane (Been listening to some Jamil stuff recently)
OG was 1.056, a little higher than i expected but oh well
This morning took a tiny sample and things are looking good.
