Let us know how that turns out. Have you had Heady before? I am at something like 3:1:1 on Simcoe, Columbus, Chinook at the moment, would be interested what 1:1:1 is like so I can save some Simcoe.

I've def had heady. I'm currently crafting just a normal IPA with summit for bittering. Then, I'm doing half oz Columbus and half oz Chinook at 15. Then doing oz each of Columbus, Chinook, Simcoe at 2 min, then again an ounce each for an aroma steep once I chill the wort to around 170. Then I'm dry hopping with 1.5 oz Columbus, 1.5 oz Chinook and 1 oz Simcoe. I'll definitely let you know how it turns out but I probably won't brew it for another few weeks, then another month or so to age. It may be a while.

Very good description of "dank". For those of you who aren't aware, "dank" (aside from the dictionary def.) is a term used to describe high quality pot. Since pot and hops are cousins and share similar aromas, the term has been used to describe beers with a strong, marijuana character in the flavor and aroma.

Personally, I've always thought of Heady as one of the more dank IPAs, it has all those aromas I associate with "dank"; citrus, cat, pine, forest, tropical juicy fruit, etc.

A while back itt thread I said I was going to be sending some slurry to a microbiologist, long story short he had a can of heady and cultured it up himself and just recently got back to me. His response...

Conan is an ale yeast (S. cerevisae)
Not that we didnt already know/assume that but at least the whole lager bottling strain is officially debunked. he is running tests of it on some unhopped wort to get a better idea of the flavor profile.

What are the chances someone with access to Conan and good culturing skills would be willing to grow up starters and ship out samples to interested parties? It sounds like a very interesting yeast.

No reasonable person would hope for this for free of course

Oh man, you're going to confuse people by bringing this up again!

Well my first Conan ferment is wrapping up and man, that stuff is a beast. Ferments hard and fast even in the high 50's.

Between wlp007 and now Conan I may officially be done with California ale yeast.
