You found Simcoe but not Amarillo? Usually it's the other way around.

Brewing this bad boy tomorrow, is everyone still using hop bags for the additions or just throwing the pellets in since there are so many additions?

I use a 5 gallon paint strainer, like this: http://bertusbrewery.blogspot.com/20...th-bertus.html

I just threw them in the kettle, whole hops and all. Dumped most of it in the fermenter and let it settle out.

I've been reading that the WLP007 is pretty hardcore. I'm going to make a 1L starter tonight so I'm ready for a brewing weekend. If i'm making a 5 gallon batch, using a bucket for primary, how likley is it that I need to use a blowoff?

I don't typically use blowoff tubes, but having never used this yeast (or tried this recipe), I'd like to avoid any possiblities of a mess. Just moved into a new townhouse and the last thing i want is to ruin the landlord's carpet.

Depends on the temperature you ferment it at. Low 60s, it's not too bad. mid-high 60s, it'll blow off pretty well. I'd use a tube just in case.

Also, if you can make a bigger starter, do so. I made a 3L starter for this beer, and I use a stir plate. If you don't have something big enough for 3L, go as big as you can.

Thanks, I'm now considering putting this in a spare bathtub or shower now. With that, I may have two options, depending on the target temp. I could put it in one safe spot, where I would guess it can ferment at around 68 degrees, or another where it would probably be between 60-62 degrees.

Logistically, the space with the lower temp would be best for me to keep the primary, but I see the optimum temp range for this yeast is 65-70. Do you think I would have any negative effects from the lower than ideal temp, if i chose to keep it there?

Also pertaining to the starter, I can go larger, but I've read debates on whether or not to step it up near the OG of the brew itself, rather than just keeping it around 1.040. I would think the 1.040 should be fine, considering the main purpose is simply to multiply your viable yeast count. Any thoughts?

When he said bigger starter, I don't think he mean't stepping it up. Instead of doing 1L of 1.040 wort do 2-3L of 1.040 wort. I think I did 2L for mine and it seemed to work well, but it doesn't hurt to go bigger.

Yeah, I was tracking as far as the volume goes, and will have no problem doing a 2-3L starter, I was just asking about the gravity of the starter. I take it, you also just do 1.040 on your starters, regardless of the OG of the wort you're making?

Just some rapid fire answers:

-1.030-1.040 for every starter. We're just trying to grow yeast.
-You don't need to step up the 1L to 3L (although you can), you can go straight from vial>3L
-Ignore the ideal temp range. 60-64 is where you want to start this beer.

You're two ranges are actually ideal. Start the beer at 60-62 for the first couple days, once fermentation peaks (day 3, day 4), move the fermenter to the area that's 68, to keep the yeast active, and help them attenuate the beer.
