Glad to see recent activity for this clone.

I plan on taking on the Hopslam clone this weekend. For those who've recently brewed this, what yeast setup did you guys use? I saw doubling up on dry yeast was fairly common, or would a Wyeast with a starter be sufficient for such a big beer?

I don't know if you could get a big enough starter by the weekend. I would go dry with 2 or 3 packets in this case. I normally like a big starter if time permits.

So, just FYI... i do'nt know what happened, but i never took a FG reading until the keg was almost gone. I got horribly goofy after 2 pints so i checked into what the FG was... i was expecting 1.020.. but 2 packs of S-05 got it down to 1.008.. which after my calculations ended at almost 11% abv. no **** i got retarded great recipe!

Another FYI...the batch I just transferred to keg yesterday had a FG of 1.012. I also used 2 packs of S-05. Mine however only had an OG of 1.084 so I think I'm right around 9.5%.

I used about 250ml of harvested S-05 yeast. I was able to get it down to 1.002. Be warned - this is a potent beer…wife loves it but it kicks my butt if I drink more than a couple.

One weekend we treated it as a session….I do not recommend anyone do that…its got a kick!

Enjoying a bottle now. Finally carbed up and I'm pleasantly surprised how close this is to the original. Still a little off per my own recipe but the overall the malt flavor is dead on. Think the extra ABV and the higher temp/FG had an impact. Used 2 packs wyeast North American in a 2L starter.

Glad all of you had success with this, mine wasn't all that great. I think I had too many sugars or unfermentables that made a bit syrupy/ cidery.

I just bottled mine tonight. I didn't add any extra yeast to the bottling bucket, what are the chances it won't carb? I was just reading about how high abv beers should always have new yeast when bottling.. is this a rule of thumb that I missed?

I made a double IPA that checked in around 1.091 for OG and bottled it the same as I would a low gravity beer and it carbed up just fine...

Just be patient with this big of beer... With no added yeast at bottling it took 5 weeks at 70 degrees to carb up enough to be enjoyed. It was even better after 8 weeks. As long as you made a big enough starter you should be fine.
