I brewed this up again on 2/7 and used Conan yeast (harvested from Heady Topper). It is bubbling away. My boil off wasn't as good as normal, ended about 5-7 points shy and at 6.3g. I got a new pot, so will need to adjust for that. I am considering adding a half pound of sugar to primary (boiled to a syrup) to help with the ABV and dry it out, however from what I have read the Conan is a beast.
I was thinking of using 1 fresh packet of S-04 and 1 older (expires 4/13) packet, rehydrated, with some yeast fuel in the boil and 60 seconds of pure oxygen when pitching.
I have a batch ready for bottling in a couple of days in which I used a 2L starter of WLP002 - unfortunately I fear the starter got infected, hence my eagerness to get another batch going.
I think there's something going amiss with my liquid starter process so I'm moving to dry until I can pinpoint it.
