Here's the one from Northern Brewer. I doubled the recipe and used the Hopshots. I hit my OG to the decimal point:) The Hotshots are interesting stuff...

I'm on day 10 of my fermentation and just dropped in a buttload of pellets for the first stage of dry hopping.

I had some issues when I brewed my version. The amount of hops overwhelmed my hop spider causing my new plate chiller to clog during knock out. I had to reverse the plumbing and work out the clog and filter out the rest of the hops manually. I had to reboil the wort to for 15 min sanitize it. After all of that I still hit my numbers dead on.
I took a sample on 3/24 before dry hopping and my FG was 1.008, having the conical made it super easy to drop out the yeast. :D

I just put the second charge of dry hops in my version yesterday. Hoping to keg on Tuesday or Wednesday, got be ready for CVBG Gathering in April. Let's compare, Jim!

I'm still not really sure how the Hopshot thing went on my clone. Time will tell...
