I'd like to try that Ranger Creek recipe sometime, but note that it uses Oat Malt, not the adjunct. I think that would make a significant difference, though I don't really know anything about Oat Malt.

I just used 3% oats along with 3% flaked maize in the All Day IPA recipe in the last Zymurgy issue and I really like it. I don't get any flavor from the oats (maybe a touch of sweetness from the corn) and it's crystal clear. I think it did the trick as far as building body.

148 Mash
1.040 OG
50 IBU

Omega 004 is described on the website as being comparable to Wyeast1056/WLP001, so your second pitch probably won't change your beer that much.

I'm kegging 5 gallons this weekend that used Omega DIPA (Conan). It was very fresh - I pitched it 3 weeks after the packaging date.

1.070 OG
1 minute pure O2
1.5 L starter
Fermented at 68

It was pretty quiet for the first 18-24, but then took off like a rocket and achieved 78% AA. And I like what I'm tasting so far.

The package says use starter over 1.060, but I would make one regardless.
As others have said, Starter + Oxygen + Temperature = Tasty Beer
