Too start things off, the only word I can think of is fantastic. Made this into a Triple Dry Hopped Vanilla Milkshake NE IPA. Basically went all out.
Recipe, 3 Gallon batch
70.59% 2 Row
23.53% Flaked Oats
5.88% Lactose Powder
I used HBC-586, Dr Rudi and Medusa hops all from YVH starting the hop additions at 15 mins and then triple dry hopping through fermentation. Temp was kept between 68-72 degrees throughout duration of fermentation. Allowed to ferment for 14 days before bottling, has been carbonating for 7 days. Just opened first bottle and wow. This is a great beer, fermented very clean allowing the hop esters to shine. Has a great haze to it, and fermented fairly quickly for being low flocculation. Great yeast, 10/10 would buy again. Only complaint is maybe more cells, 50ml pack is small not giving a crazy amount of yeast cells. No yeast starter made, don’t have the stir plate and flask.

I did a 3 gallon small batch with this yeast. Mashed in at 150°.
77% – 2-Row
15% – Flaked Wheat
8% – Cane Sugar
Hops- 1oz each of Galaxy. Mosaic. Citra. At yeast pitch.
Pitched yeast at 67° and let sit at around 70° for 48hrs.
Dry hopped with 2oz each of Galaxy. Mosaic. Citra. Elevated to 72° and let sit for 3 days.
Final gravity at 1.010.
Kegged on day 6. Force carbed for 24hrs. Then let sit for two days.
It’s a hop bomb with great flavor and huge aroma.
As I have experienced with a Conan in past, it did drop a bit more clear than I want. Still some haze but not thick.
If you are going for a thick hazy hop bomb, this isn’t it. However, it gives great flavors and big aroma.
