And finally - the Old Jubilation recipe is the exact one i used a few years back - won BOS with it in 2011 (~300 entry comp).  Used the 1028 yeast though... :o

Thanks Blatz on the heads up about 1028 and congrats on the 2011 BOS.  I'm looking forward to brewing Jubilation and have a question for you.  How long did you let your Jubilation age?  I'm gonna brew some this weekend and let it go for a couple of months.

you're not gonna like this...I brewed it in 2008 - it took 4 medals in all (out of 4 competitions entered) 1 bronze, 1 silver and 2 golds.  It progressively got better - the 2 golds were at the end. 

I looked at my notes and one thing I did which you may want to do was to boil down a half gallon of the first runnings down to about a pint or two (i didn't measure it, just went until I couldn't boil anymore without scorching it) and then add that plus the water lost to the main boil.  I got this technique making Skotrat's Traquair House clone and I like it so...
