Got a jonesin' for it so we're doing it again. May try to tweak it a bit but honestly this beer is close to ideal for this type of style. The last beer was a little less hop-forward than the first, but the head retention was great and I was very very happy how it came out. Hopefully I'll get the same results.

has anybody tried cutting down the secondary to one week when planning to bottle rather than keg?

Going to brew this tomorrow and I just can't wait. I'm sure this is going to be one of my best brews to date.

So my question is how long are you dry hopping this beer? Is it for the whole two weeks that its in the secondary? Or a week.

that's my question to Matt. I usually dry hop for a week to ten days to avoid extra grassy notes. but I'd rather defer to Matt as it's his recipe. haven't heard from him on this yet....

Short answer, 3-7 days with pellets.

Just picked up the ingredients for this one...$42. Haven't read a bad thing about it.
Anyone see a problem with using S-04??

I sprinkled in two packs of US-05. a bit of overkill perhaps but I've been struggling with stalled fermentations (probably because I'm too invest in a decent aeration system) and wanted to make sure I got full attenuation. about to transfer to secondary. I'll keep ya posted on my FG.
