Fantastic explanation and thanks for the guidance on yeast washing.

Sounds like a craaaazy brew and when i get better at AG, I'm trying it as my first high gravity.

thanks

I was just reminiscing about Pliny the Elder recently as I had the good fortune to receive one during the Xmas swap. What a spectacular 'special occasion' beer.

Picking through the hop freezer and seeing the bounty, I've got the serious itch to brew this one up.

Might need to consult you on a couple of hop substitutions.

I just pulled the trigger and ordered the ingredients for this from BW. Question, I have an IPA sitting on a Wyeast 1272 cake that I was originally planning on pitching this to. What are your thoughts on that? Based on the flavor profile, would you just recommend using the US-05?

If you use it, make sure to ferment on the cooler side for the crisp citrus profile. Warm fermenting will give more fruitiness.

Depends on what you're after.

With a relatively pricey recipe like this, I'd be tempted to stick with a clean yeast so you don't overpower that bounty of hops in there...but it's a personal preference.

This looks like a great IPA. I've taken a little time off since my last brew so I'm fresh out of yeast slurry. If I begin with a fresh starter, what yeast would you recommend as a "clean yeast" for a batch?

Thanks.

I want the hops. I have about a jar and a half of US-05 slurry from your Centennial Blonde recipe, dated 5/2/09, or 3 packets of powder. When slurry is almost a month old, should I make a starter for it? I've never waited that long to use it.

Edit: I have a ferment fridge - 68*?
