Oh hell yeah, mine's been in the fermenter for a week now! Once I get a cup of coffee and clear the fog, I'll take a reading and post back. Sure do wish I had some Heady for comparison (yes, that's directed at you people up over there )

Long time reader, first time poster..

Successfully harvested Conan from some cans. I am going to use it alongside EdWort's Haus Pale Ale's grainbill mostly so I can understand its properties, and so I have a lot more yeast. Then I'm going to do a clone, in large part based on tastings here, in small part based on experimentation. My goal isn't necessarily a dead-on clone, but moreso for a badass IPA inspired by it.

Looks great Vegan and Skinny.....

Do you guys taste any biscuit in Heady? Maybe Vienna?

I've got to break down and start a real search for some Heady. I've got all my equipment free, so it's time to get my A$$ in gear.

Hard to tell, Pearl is a bit dry and bready on it's own. I only put other stuff (Munich) in there for a little sweetness and to get it up towards 5.7-5.9SRM.

Dry hop update on my 2nd attempt. I split the 5.25 gallons or so into 2 kegs evenly. I wanted to simplify the hop additions to see if I could get the dominant heady characteristic to come out. I did one keg with the 5-gallon-batch-equivalent of 3 ounces of Simcoe and 1.5 ounces of Centennial, the other keg was 3 ounces Simcoe and 1.5 ounces of Columbus.

I figure I can add to the dry hop after a few days if I taste something missing. On the first attempt, I couldn't take out hops, so was limited to adding more on top of the 6 I put in already.

I'm at 1.01, cold crashing tomorrow. The sample smelled amazing, very Heady-like. Tropical, dank, tasted great too.

Super fast ferm, right? I've been sub to this thread since the beginning.
I appreciate all you brewers have done to get this right. Unfortunately, I am still working to all grain brewing, and don't have the equipment (or knowledge) to work on it. I cannot wait to try the 'final' recipe for my first all grain in the next couple months.

Thank you.

Pretty avg. for my beers. 5-7 days is what I usually see with ales, and after seeing Conan get up and go in starters, I figured he'd chew through this wort fast. I went 62 up to 64 degrees over the first three days and bumped it up to ~67 today. Couple days at ~50 and then dry hops at room temp.
