Fracker: Have you seen Fred's website? It's the best resource for brewing big beers I've found. My big beers sucked before I found it.

So it looks like I'll go with the 1056 and bring down the temp. For temp control I use a rubbermaid bin filled with water and a fishtank heater. Works awesome!!

Thanks again for all the input,
Cheers!

swap out the heater for some ice (or frozen bottles of water and you are golden for lowering your temp
