Is that whole or pellet? Or does it matter?

I've been using WY1272 with good results. It's similar to 1056 but clears a little quicker.

Got a English Barleywine brewing now.  Tossing that onto the yeast cake from a northern brown from a couple of weeks ago.

Just finished a hoppy session ale. Kegging a porter. Cutting and drilling into a couple of sanke's!!

I just add everything to the primary. Unless I am adding fruit and expecting a secondary fermentation.

Northern Brown for me!!

Yesterday brewed a mild, today brewed an esb, tomorrow a milk stout, and friday a porter!! busy couple of days.  Also need to keg an ipa and a chocolate milk stout, bottle a saison.

2011: First full year of brewing!! I met the goals that I had set (switch to all grain, start using yeast starters, enter a competition, and start kegging). I also found a fridge for fermentation so i can ferment at what ever temp I would like.  

2012: I plan on moving to ten gallon batches, entering more compietitions(for more feed back), improving house brews(ESB, IPA, Porter) and keeping better records.

I would also like to start dabbling in sours.

brewed up an IPA!!

I would think that the high mash temp and 6lbs of caramunich were the biggest problems with the high FG.  Also give the beer a couple more days and it might drop some more.
