mine had some as well. this is my first time ever using an activator pack. is a yeast starter less necessary with a smack pack? maybe i should just take this question to the fermentation board.

No. For any beer with an OG above 1.040, when using liquid yeast a starter is highly recommended.

I believe Wyeast 1056 is a good substitute for Pacman.

Cheers!

I got mine (Simcoe Pellets) at Brewers Outpost about a month ago. Looks like they're out of stock again though. Beer Making Kits, Wine Making Kits and Supplies

Been drinking a ton of DFH 60/90 lately, finally got some Simcoe from my LHBS so time to brew this up.

Is there really only an ounce or so of each in this recipe (not counting dry hop)?

I expected more....but I guess Simcoe is a pretty potent hop.....just surprises me that I'm only using 2oz total of Amarillo and Simcoe during the boil....but the recipe definitely seems to have the approval of everyone here and I'm not going to complain about having to buy less hops for a recipe (especially ones that can be harder to locate)

i just brewed this yesterday. My first all grain batch. Well my LHBS was out of the amber so i went with Maris Otter, but mine looks nowhere near as dark as these beers. my gravity was a little low to it was right at 1.064 which i am sure it has to do with inexpierience with all grain. I woke up this morning and had to add a blowoff. so everything took off well. thanks for the great reciepe. I look forward to trying it after the first of the year

Believe it or not, even with the amber malt, this beer is surprisingly light colored. It is actually "under" the BJCP guidelines for IPA (even though the middle word is pale!).

Yes, believe it or not. It's a nice beer to make when you're low on those "rare" hops. I'm getting low on amarillo, so this will be another beer to make next week to help conserve those precious hops!
