Sweet. It's sometimes hard to convince people that AG can be done in 4hrs or less with a little organization.

I'm all done,
Cleaned up, put away and on my 2nd Pint.

I was a couple of points out on the OG but I've got more volume than intended.
Either I didn't have my regulator fully open or I need to go over a 60 minute boil. My burner is only 18,00btu.

Sounds tasty! I've got the makings for a Brown Porter in my kegger freezer. I'm almost done with the new kegger & then I'll start brewing again.

Finished at 14:40 and at 16:40 I can see signs of fermentation.
18:40 and It's got a 2" Krausen.
19:20 and we are going for blow off.
I love dry yeast.

Me, too. I just used Nottingham for the first time in an IPA, can't wait to see how it turns out.

Congrats, orfman...

I second the love for dry yeast. I went through a stint where I was using almost all liquid, but it got to be such a PITA making starters and sh*t...now I only use liquid for special stuff. Wheat beers...trappists...15% abv stouts...you know. I've used dry on 6 of my last 8 beers, and they all roxxorz. Love me some Nottingham and US-05. (and Saflager!)
