What a difference nearly a year makes on the bitterness and hop sharpness of my SSOS..It is so good now..Only problem is its almost gone.. I am brewing another 10 gals this week but I really should earmark it for next summer.
Fish Feather report for Utah. Now that I got my 24" buck with the bow last Sunday we can worry about the fish and feather stuff.

I start to drink my SSOS just a few weeks after kegging! I'm sure it would be still GOOD after a year, but...

My next brew will again be SSOS. It is just the best!

SSOS is now my favorite beer. Question: I have used Nottingham dry yeast for 5 gallon batches.....can I get away with using only one packet of the dry Nottingham for a 10-11 gallon batch??? My hops will be as follows:
6 oz. chinook...60 min.
4 oz. Golding...15 min.
4 oz. Willamette....while chilling.

Cheers.

Patrick, you can get away with a lot of stuff in homebrewing, but that doesn't mean there isn't a better way. I'd use 2 packs if I were you, assuming they're the 11 gr. packs. If they're 5 gr. packs, I'd use more.
LIfe begins at 60...1.060, that is.

after a year the hops taste mellows out very much and the bitter taste is all gone... I did the last feeding on the wyeast 1028 london ale yeast thats in my starter jugs now for a soon to be brewed batch..

When I use dry yeast, I use two 11 gram packs per 5 gallons. But I bet 2 packs of nottingham will be enough for 10 gal. Nottingham has always been very aggressive for me.

My SSOS didn't last 6 months. Very good brew. IMO
