Well, I've got enough to make 2 batches, so maybe I'll use the S04 this time, then the WLP002 next time to compare... now I just need to find some time somewhere.

tasted my hydrometer sample tonight.. tastes awesome even though I had a mishap and my ferm temps got to about 80 for 6-12 hours. Gravity is about 1.022 after 3 days.

Any suggestions on CO2 volume for this one?

On a sidenote, I'd be interested to know what FGs people are hitting with the WLP002 yeast.

I think I am going to go for a simple 60 minute mash at 148 degrees and use a 2L starter from a very fresh vial of WLP002 along with 60 minutes of pure O2 in the wort before pitching. Hopefully this will be enough to get my gravity down.

I think I hit 1.017 I so, without pure Oxygen. If you use oxygen, 60 minutes may be a bit much (I assume you meant 60s.?.?)

LOL! Yes I meant 60 seconds!

Brewed this today, just finished pitching. Looks like I hit an OG of 1.081.

Stuck with a 60 minute boil and a single temperature mash of 147-148 degrees. Moved the Amarillo to 30 mins instead of 25 to get the tiny amount of lost IBUs back.

That was the theory anyway!

Cannot wait to start drinking this!

Must be patient!

Brewing this up next weekend. I was able to get all the grain at Brewmaster warehouse for $25. It's awesome how they will sell you grain by the ounce. Most online shops will only sell by the lb. Looking forward to this one. Wookey is one of my favs.

Did you batch sparge? I was wondering if people we're doing single infusion for this...

Also, I am struggling to find the Amarillo Gold hops... Anyone have an online store to buy those?

thanks for the other links for the grains everyone... This is going to be my next brew... favorite beer right now this stuff ROCKS

I see Amarillo - but is this the same as Amarillo Gold? I'd like to be as precise as possible with the clone attempt...
