I'll report back and we can see if the extra Victory made a significant difference. I'm fermenting a little warmer at 68 as well.
Awesome! It'll be interesting to note the differences. We should swap a few bottles. I wonder what shipping would be like? hmmm...

I went a head and re-hydrated the yeast just because I've heard and read that when you sprinkle, half of the cells won't activate.... I dunno? It only took me like 15 minutes while the wort was chillin', I had no time restraints that day so I just went with it.

Very good, thanks for the recipe Sparky! Like others have said, my wife (sorry, SWMBO), who hardly ever drinks beer, said "yum" and went back for more.

Just brewed this again. Went back to my roots and brewed like I did this one the first time (Except I did this in No-Chill style).

Williamette for both hops additions, 2-row instead of maris otter, and back to nottingham yeast. We'll see how she does this time.

Cheers to Sparky

This turned out great. Although I think my hop utilization is off... I started with 6.5 gallons preboil and ended up with 4.5 after the 60 min boil. Just a tad more bitter than I thought I think it should have been.
Here are a few pics though after 6 days on the gas... btw.... this is my first keged beer!

The recipe isn't designed to be bitter at all. If anything it should lean towards malty. It may be that it still needs some aging. I bet it mellows out over the next few weeks if it lasts that long.

Brewed a 2 gallon batch of this up last Tuesday. Used a whole pack of Notty for it! I think I might have overpitched...
Turned it into a partial mash with 2 pounds DME.
It's happily fermenting away, but unfortunately I didn't have a hydrometer before I pitched, so I don't know the OG.

It smells awesome right now, thanks for the recipe! I look forward to brewing 5 gallons of this soon.

Good news, it has mellowed way out, just within the last two days. I think my first few pints I was getting some settlement and that was adding to the bitterness I was getting. (first time keging) Now I know to 1) rack better 2) draw a few pints off the keg to get the settlement out.

Oh, and no it won't last that long... I have some guys coming over Friday to help drain it! I need the keg empty on Saturday... isn't that an awesome problem to have!

Just bottles this and snuck a sip, wow, this is a great beer. Thanks for sharing the recipe, super delicious. Can't wait til it's primed up and chilled down.

Thanks for the recipe !

I've doubled it and am going to introduce a friend to brewing with this tomorrow. We're both knocking off work to brew. Wish me luck!
