Sounds like you're going for a "West Coast" style stout, not a British one. I use 1056 for those, so I'd recommend 001 if you're going White Labs.

Thanks Denny and Drew.
The thing I worry about it this event is becoming so big that only a handful of cities in the US can really support that many people for an event. When you also take into account that of the cities that can host an event like this, how many of them are "craft beer-centric"? Seattle and San Diego were great because they are great beer cities and have the support from multiple homebrew clubs. I'm sure Utah won't be in the mix for awhile
I have heard of people using melanoidin malt to emulate a decoction mash...anyone tried this with any luck?
i am thinking that just boiling the first runnings longer may produce the same effect but have not experimented yet.
The AHA just got a new IT crew, they'll be taking a look at it. We suspect it's a theme thing because if people move out of the default theme, the problems go away. (I think)
We've asked them to focus on this, so changes soon.
Where do we change our theme? I looked everywhere through the profile settings and couldn't find anyplace to change it.
that was my thought too, so then how much different would you expect it from just doing an extended boil with part of the runnings. i suspect there would be still some difference do to possible flavors present in the grain that may not be in the wort but just guessing that is minimal
