  • Wake Up
  • Put on a pot of coffee
  • Fill keg with sani and water
  • Wait for coffee to brew and pour yourself a cup
  • Drain off the sani with your auto-siphon
  • Drink your coffee
  • Xfer the beer
  • Pour yourself another cup of coffe, but make it Irish this time.

I like your style.

Can I substitute coffee for beer? Or will that screw up the process somehow.

Yes, I'd do all the time, just hit it with CO2 to seal it up. After sanitizing, I like to hook the keg up to my empty tap and run the starsan through the line/tap then just leave the keg pressurized.

ao125's method works also.

Has anyone reached out to Three Floyds for a clone recipe, or asked for them to look at this recipe? I'd like to attempt a go at the Zombie Dust, but want to mimic Three Floyd's actual recipe as much as I can.

@skeezerpleezer Has your recipe on post #1 been edited to reflect the experimenting and feedback you've received? If not, I'd recommend it since it's the place everyone starts at on this thread. 21 pages and counting is quite a bit to sift through.

Cheers.

As a westcoaster I haven't had the pleasure of enjoying zombie dust. However, it will be on cask tonight at a Real Ale festival. Can't wait to try it and see what you guys are talking about (and yes, I will be taking notes =)

I mashed my 1968 batch at 155 and it ended up a couple point higher than I wanted (higher than the s-04 and s-05 batches). I would probably do 151-152 next time with that yeast.
