    DuClaw For Pete's Sake clone?

    Anyone have an all grain recipe for this? I found a clone for Sweet Baby Jesus but would rather shoot for the imperial version. The DuClaw website lists the grains as Pale, Cara Munich, Chocolate, Black and flaked oats. Nugget and Glalena hops.

    When to pull harvested yeast from fridge?

    I am brewing a batch on Monday, today is Saturday. I have been brewing for 25 years but will be using harvested yeast for the first time. I am going to directly pitch the harvested yeast. Question: How far ahead of "pitching time" do you take your harvested yeast out of the fridge? Thanks!

    55lb grain bag storage

    It has been a long time since I have bought a 55lb bag of grain. Planning on keeping it in my basement until the weather cools a bit in Alabama. Should I put this bag in anything or will it be OK as is?

    Other hobbies?

    I am sure this has been done before, but what the heck. What are your other hobbies? Mine is modifying and building audio equipment, then listening to music while I drink my home brew. In the glass is an oatmeal stout I bottled in May. Mostly classic rock and jazz.
