My WLP099 should arrive tomorrow. I'll smack that bitch as soon as it arrives. Once it swells (it'd better swell), I'll pitch it into a 1L starter. Once that's done, I'll dump another liter of wort in. Once that's done, I'll go another round, until I have a massive crapload of yeast. Then I'll crash-cool it and decant off the liquid. Hopefully, this will all be done by Saturday. I plan on waking up around 5 or 6am. With this massive grain bill, I have a feeling that I'll be needing plenty of time to boil off all the liquid. Maybe my new traceable waterproof digital thermometer will be here by then...that would be nice.

Wish me luck...

Maybe Evan! is expecting the vial to swell up.

Good luck. Sounds like a challenging but fun brew day.

So your response to getting cut off is to brew a 16% beer? I like where your head's at.

I thought I read your other half made you take a break for a while...or am I just missing something?
