Aroma Coma is really tasty, but I like Aroma Prieta better. It is the same beer, but all Aussie/NZ hops.

What a bunch of loud mouths!Loved me some Russell Wilson. I got tuckered when Breezy was not on the comeback...did Seattle fans ever surpass the roar of Arrowhead? Mist and rain likely hampered the results.
Yeah, We barely beat it, but we did. 137.6. We also caused 5 separate seismic events between 1 and 2 on the richter scale.

Well, that gives new meaning to the reason why they call the 101st guys "The Belching Buzzards."
You could lager if you want. I think it would help smooth out the beer early and you could probably drink it sooner, although I'd look at lagering it for 4-6 weeks, if you can. On the other hand, you'll drop out a lot of yeast so carbonation will occur at a slower rate. You may be happier bottling after 2-3 weeks and then after the bottles have carbonated you can stick them in the garage to lager over the winter, as long as the bottles won't freeze.
I would bottle and then cold condition them, it will just make the carbonation process go easier with less issues.
yeah, I mash session beers at 162 all the time. I would think that 1qt/lb is a little thick and that might affect your conversion efficiency some. If your after big and malty consider no sparge.
Mash at around 2qt/lb and, if the number seem like you'll need a bit more pre-boil, add it as a mash out step.
I grew up a niner fan on Oahu.
Saints and Broncos - could go either way.
Mileage... is that what YMMV is? Your mileage may vary? If so I finally got that one.
Don't be disappointed too quick. My first AG was about as good as my previous extract brews. But I started addressing my little problems one at a time, learning as I went, with great improvement along the way. I'm still working on it an expect I will be working on it forever. That's the fun. Searching for the perfect pint.
Where's NHC '15 going to be held?
I'm going to the ADI conference in Seattle in April, so Grand Rapids is not going to happen for me.
First off - I'd take a week off and just brew once or twice a day. Get 'er dialed in as-is before you start tweaking.
I won't be taking off work, but I also won't be modding it for at least the first six-nine months.
Guess I just always wanted to take a Brewcation.
McMaster has pretty good gasket prices:
