I guess I did. Whoops!

Is there a consensus mash temp? I am thinking 150.

I used Conan yeast last time and mashed at 152 and it got down to ~1.011. 150 would probably work great, but I can't remember off hand what temp I used for 1968

How did the conan pair with citra hops?

It was really good, I will use it again next time. I also used Pearl malt as the base on that one (ala Heady Topper).

Nice, Sunday is day 14 of fermentation of my HT clone using the conan. I've used the YG-001 for a wet hop beer last weekend and using again this weekend for a variation on Tasty's APA with Citra.

I'm drinking my HT clone now, with the YG001 (Conan) yeast, and it is awesome. As Skeezer did, my last ZD clone was with Conan yeast and Pearl as the base malt. It's only been fermenting for 5 days, so I'll have to chime in later when it's kegged. I normally dry hop right in the primary, but since Conan is so hard to find these days, I think I'll have to rack off the Conan so I can harvest some. I've never harvested yeast before, but in this case, I think it's worth it.

Please do, I've been building up starters that are 50-100 bil cells larger than necessary and adding to a sanitized ball jar just before pitching. So far so good. I'll have to give the ZD with Pearl and Conan a go!

You could just use an autosiphon or racking cane to siphon some off the top of the cake, then dry hop.

I just did a post on my blog trying this recipe for an extract kit....the recipe did sound solid, however this was my first time home brewing by myself and let's just say....I will never do that again. Check out what happened:
