We're off for MLK day (but the wife is not  :P ), so brewing 12g of all Centennial IPA to celebrate batch 100 (even though its really batch #104  ::)).

Looking forward to it - am trying TF Halcyon for the first time in this one.  Been growing up some 1450 all week...

If you're making a starter you don't need to wait for the smack pack to swell.  Just smack it, shake it up, and pour it into the starter.

yep, the only point of the "swelling" is to verify that you've got viable yeast in the smack pack.  If you're making a starter (which you should pretty much always do), you'll verify the viability with it instead so no need to wait for the swelling.

awesome - be sure to post your thoughts here (http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=629.msg10805#msg10805) once you've had the beer.

10+ gallons of Dunkelweizen. 3068 came off the stir plate last night and will get a real wort starter while the rest of the wort is chilling to 60.

5+ gallons of Pils using all home grown Mt Hood hops
Slurry from aa Dunkel is getting woken up with real wort starter as well.

Going to try and squeeze in 3+ gallons of Braggot too.
