i will give it one more try and if it is still flat i will reyeast. with a full dropper, and yes, it tasted sweet. i am assuming that the yeast should be rehydrated but not "started"? thanx for all the help. i am new to homebrewing. only been at it a year or so and still learning alot. this website has been alot of help.

not real peticular on what kind of cedar, just looking for that cedar flavor. had a red ale aged on a cedar spiral (cask) from a local colorado brewery where i live and it was fantastic and they were kind enough to share there recipe and they said they got their cedar from cigar city brewing. so as jeffy posted maybe it is actually a spanish mahogany. maybe i will have to go sniffing around. thanx guys!

to reply to all of you, i did 12 22 oz bombers and the rest are 12 oz long necks. i added 1 cup priming priming to about 3 cups water and boiled 10 minutes before cooling and adding to beer at bottling. and i always gently stir it to mix it with a sterilized spoon. it has been sitting at about 70 for a month now. i double pitched san diego super intially and pitched a third using a starter a few weeks before bottling. the final abv was 10%. what would be the easiest way without sacrificing anything, this is my favorite style of beer and dont want to have to use this batch for cooking!!
