I had the exact opposite problem. I don't think the honey completely fermented out in my brew...come bottling time with just that little extra bit of sugar the yeast went back to work. I had three bottle bombs from the batch but the rest are overly carbed

I made a 3 gallon batch of this on friday. I added some fresh cascade cones that I harvested the night before. I used some belg. Pils and the honey instead of sugar. I had to put on a blow off tube yesterday. I have a rapid fermentation goin on and it is smelling great.

I have Bell's House yeast on hand, does anyone know if this is what they use in Hopslap so I know it can handle the ABV level?

I picked up everything for this today. Just waiting for my Arrogant Bastard clone to finish, so I can reuse the yeast.

Yes, they use the house yeast in Hopslam. The only beers that don't use that strain are their lagers and a few specialty beers, like Winter White.

It was difficult to carb in the keg, actually had to let it sit at 25PSI for a few days longer than normal. Also seemed real thick almost syrupy at first. But it's getting a little better. It was pretty good last night when I took this pic. I'm going to try again in a few days.

I just got done kegging half and bottling the other half of my 7 gallon batch. I noticed when taking hydrometer samples that there was a lot of residual CO2 in the samples, my gravity dropped a point once i shook it all out. Anyone else notice this? This was my first imperial and I used Bell's House Yeast.
