Just reading the above, if you are looking for another yeast try SAF 04. I tried it and it works great. I also skip the secondary on this one and put the hops in primary. Once again, it works great. No complaints here.

thanks rivert! I will get some s04 for the next batch and compare! I was tempted to do that from the start, given the same facts I found in my own research, which included your very posts about trying it last year in place of the Wyeast. But I had the s05 already and was encouraged to give it a shot as it should do a great job as well. We'll see... _________________ painfully aware of his inexperience and the questions that come due to it...

Iím planning on brewing this on Friday, but would love take some on our annual fishing trip (in bottles), which is three weeks from Friday. Do you think I can ferment this and keg it in three weeks time, and then the night before I leave fill a number of bottles? If necessary, I have a carbonating lid that Iíve had decent success in carbonating a keg in about 1-2 days. Iím assuming this beer is a good beer to drink young.

Definitely! See the recommendations in the notes section of the recipe - itís what I do to get this on tap quickly. Looking at my notes from my past 5-6 batches, and assuming you pitch my recommended yeast amount and follow my fermentation schedule, you should be 11-13 days from brew day to keg. Then 24 hours to carb. Then bottle. You definitely want to drink this young and fresh.
