This is next on my list a well and I'm thinking of using WLP007 instead of WLP002. Anyone go this route?

I've got all the ingredients for this on hand, been waiting to brew it for the last month, but something always comes up when I want to brew (kids sick, wife sick, me sick, negative degree weather, that sort of crap).

#RunningFarmer... you used S04 and it came out tasty. I'm debating using either S05 or S04, since I have both of those on hand. Any input on which of these would be better to use (in your opinion)?

True, but my problem is with doing a starter before hand, since it seems every time brew day comes around, someone's sick or something else pops up. I guess technically I could put the starter in the fridge until I can brew, but then I have no idea when the next day I can brew is. Hence the desire to use a dry yeast.

I have been sticking my starters in the fridge so i can decant all that weak beer off the yeast. I spend way too much time working to get the recipe the way I want it to dump 3L of starter wort in. This weekend is yeast growing weekend and will be making starters and mashing/pressure canning some wort for said starters.

so4 was fine just chase up the fermentation temp because mine left it a little sweet. 64* was where we started and did not bump the temp until it was almost done. Next time after two days I will add 1 degree a day to finish. with that said I love so5
