I like the Whitbread dry as well (though isn't it WY1098?).

I think it is the same strain as S-04 and similar to the one used by Stone.

Yep. Good strain.

Yep, my bad, I often get my Whitbreads crossed.
Back in the early nineties, the literally DRY Whitbread brewing yeast was my go-to. Wonder if it's still made?

I picked up a couple cans of "House" to try out this weekend.

Is "House" their version of 1056/wlp01/Chico?

No, I believe Flagship is their version of "1056", I think House may be similar to NW Ale, not sure.
I'll try to corner Owen and get some insight on their strain comparisons.

My tuna can/ESB traps are working great to keep slugs and snails off of my dahlias.

If you're going to use a pound of lactose, then mashing hot at 156 F is overkill.  Mash normal around 152 F.  Either that, or mash hot but only use 3/4 lb lactose.

Not sure, but that seems like a lot of chocolate malt.  I might take that down a hair, maybe 3/4 lb.

Looks great otherwise.  I'd drink a lot of it.

I was thinking similarly on the chocolate, Dave.  I would likely go with 1/2 lb. of the midnight wheat and call it good if you're looking for "low on the roasty/burnt flavors". I think that a pound of even pale chocolate would be fairly sharp.

September October is always the best around here. Looking forward to a break from the heat and smoke.

Indeed, warm days and cool, comfortable nights.  Love it.

Let me add....Not Oregon. It rains all the time, when the big one comes the whole damn state is going to slip away, and if you think Portland is weird you obviously haven't visited the rest of the state. (How'd I do Denny?)

You guys forgot to mention the impending beer shortage... in Oregon.

Would you agree that the little piece of paper in the hydro can move around? I ask because I'm not sure

It's certainly possible.

It's not a Rogue seasonal release is it?
Thats pretty clever

Wait, KBS= Kentucky Beard Stout, right?

Well, there you go. It's just meant to be.
