I am going to make my second batch this weekend. I washed my notingham yeast and saved it from the first batch. This might be a stupid question but since this was a dry yeast i am going to ask. Can i use the yeast i washed and refrigerated for my next batch?

What process did you use for the gelatin?

Depending on when you sampled, it might mellow some. I know after only a week in primary, mine has a pronounced bitter note but after the second week I mellows considerably and more of the maltyness comes through.

Tuckferrorists - I got a cup of warm water from the kitchen sink and put 1 whole packet of Knox original unflavored gelatin sprinkled in it. Waited 5 minutes then stirred it up. Heated on stove to 170F stirred again then put in secondary and transfered beer on top. This was done at room temp for four days then I kegged. Since then I have tried other methods with only a 1/2 pack but have not seen those results.

Made this on Saturday. Used some pacific ale yeast though, we'll see how she goes. Chugging away like crazy in the ferm chamber. I keep dialing down the temp a few degrees to slow 'er down (looking for a more clean finish on this one).

I'm wondering if 3 IBUs will make any noticeable difference. My hops are a bit weaker than the recipe calls for (estimate ~18 IBUs vs 21.6 IBUs). (I did a quick search but didn't find anything). However, I was able to bring it up to 20 IBUs (in theory) by doing a first wort hopping instead of the 55 minute addition. The pre-boil smells were amazing. Can't wait to try this one!

Certainly within tolerable range. You should have a great beer on your hands.

I brewed up 10 more gallons of this over the weekend for a joint birthday party in a couple of weeks. Such a fun, easy brew day, too!
