I used WLP004 the two times I brewed this. It turns out good, I don't know how to compare it to the other yeast but I think you won't be disappointed.

Any thoughts on oak? I've thought of doing this recipe next time with some oak chips for about 2 weeks in secondary. I've made this beer 3 or 4 times now but haven't used oak ever.

I thought about oaking it just to give it a shot, I just never got around to it. Was going to oak my oatmeal stout next time I make it, might oak this one at the same time.

If you do oak yours, please let me know how it turns out.

Brewing this today.

Not happy with how my grains were crushed at my LHBS. As I was dumping it into my mash (BIAB style), I noticed a lot of the Cara type malt was not really crushed well at all. Not sure what happened. The 2-Row was all cruhed very well. Oh well, still going to make beer. Probably lower efficiency, and we will see how the final turns out. Excited to try the final product!

I am going to brew this ale in a 10 gallon batch. I was just going to double all the ingredients on the the 5 gallon recipe. Is this the right way to do it, its my first time brewing more than 5 gallons? I would be using 2 lbs of honey is this too much? Thanks guys

you can double it and it'll be fine. or if you enter the recipe into BeerSmith there's a scaling feature built in.

So I brewed this a few days ago. It smells great so far. I cant wait to try the first hydro sample. My only concern is that the clor is rather "brown" and not red. This of course is in the fermenter. Not sure if its from all the yeast or waht, but it doesnt have any red color at all. Ill see once I get a hydro sample but wasnt sure if this was normal.
