I brewed this yesterday, it was my 2nd time brewing all-grain and the 2nd time on my 3 keggle system. I was off somewhere in my calculations and i was short on wort going into the boil kettle so i sparged another couple gallons but was also having a hell of a time with stuck sparge. Still came up short of the 11 gallons i was supposed to get and my gravity is 1.062 .. tastes very sweet and is d a r K!

Pardon this question as I have not read the entire thread, but what temp is best to ferment at? WLP007 calls for 65-70, I was thinking 64-66. Should I go higher?

I know this is an OLD thread (last reply over a year ago) but I thought I'd just mention I sent an email to Great Lakes explaining that I'm a home brewer and their product isn't available in Georgia where I live, and would they be kind enough to send me the recipe for 5 gallons? If they send it, I'll let you know.

Update: Sadly, they would not reveal anymore information than what they have printed online. Not even what yeast they use... *sigh*

Reason: Update based on email from brewery

If you haven't had it you're missing out. This and their rye IPA are two of my favorites.

Gonna brew this today. I have recently started back to brewing after a couple year hiatus.

this was always one of my favorites btw.

Problem is, i was unable to get WLP007. I made a 2L starter of WLP002. I am worried about it being too sweet since the 002 doesnt attenuate like the 007. My plan for this was to pitch the starter, let it ferment out a few days then add in a half packet of Nottingham to finish it off.

Will this work or just stick with the 002.

Stick with the 002. Just my opinion

002 doesnt under attenuate if you pitch enough healthy yeast.

Looks like I'm late to this party but I just bottled this one today. It tasted pretty good flat. Can't wait to see how a few weeks treats it. I used MO as the base and substituted fuggles for the Willamette. Had a few of the real Edmunds in Chicago but can't get them here. Thanks for the recipe!
