Sounds good!

The bitterness will fade a bit, so that's not surprising. This beer is a good one to age for awhile: 9mo. is good, but it will continue to change and would be good to set a few bottles for a year or more.

IMO, at the 1 year point this beer was amazing.

Notty will work, but it will be a slightly different beer.

NOTE: People have been having issues with Notty starting slow. If you use it, I would bloom 2 packages, or better yet make a starter.

ed at brewmasterswarehouse.com switched out some notti for us-05 before the shipment was sent so all good! PS - how do you bloom the yeast?

It'll do fine. Just 'cause it's different than US-05 doesn't mean the beer will be worse (could actually be better!), just different.

To bloom the yeast: I boil a cup or so of water, and let it cool to 70F. Sprinkle the yeast on top of the water and let sit for 20 minutes or so. Just before you are ready to pitch in the primary, stir it up a bit to get it all wet and dump 'er in.

i plan on brewing this recipe this week. I have a 10 gallon round cooler as my mash tun. Beersmith is telling me to use about 7.5 gallons of water for my mash. Is all of this going to fit in there OK?
