Made this yesterday! OG came in high, great news, so I made 7 gallons. 3 in one fermentor 4 in another. It's happily bubbling away. Put one in a glass Carboy so i could see this yeast go to work. Pretty thick krausen! Now just have to get the limeade.

I boosted both motueka additions to 0.4oz (20 abd 7 so guess i added one!) and kept sorachi the same. We'll have to compare tasting notes!! But i used the 3068 yeast.....

Anyone else having a hard time finding motueka and sorachi hops?? LHBS doesn't carry either and a few places online are sold out. Grrrrr...

How could someone turn that recipe into a partial mash if not familiar with all grain techniques?

Brew update:

Pitched the yeast around 10 p.m. Thursday. Activity was slow -- I didn't see any activity until 1 a.m. Saturday, so more than 24 hours. Since then, though, krausen has been high and my blowoff tube is bubbling well. Right now it's bubbling once every 6-7 seconds or so.

So I pitched the yeast 86 hours ago, but there has only been activity for 59 hours or so. Is it safe to drop in the Simple Lime, or should I wait a little longer for the krausen to settle?

My whole house smells like a fart today. Thought I had a blowout, then I thought my yeast had a blowout. Nope- it's the 3068 just bubbling away. Damn.

I would wait until you see slowing activity...the problem with the limeade and this recipe, is that your yeast will go crazy for it..so if the sugars from the grain haven't slowed down then it will be liking adding gas to a fire!

That's what I figured. I still have a good 1.5 inches of krausen in my carboy and my airlock is bubbling once every 6 seconds or so. I though it would die down by now, but those yeast are freakin' happy...
