Batch 135, SNPA clone

Trying a yeast experiment, a 10 gallon batch with only one packet of Wyeast 1056. Thought I'd do the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale clone for this one.

10 gallon batch

20 lbs 2 row
1 lbs wheat
1 lbs Crystal 60/120

Mashed at 154F for 60 minutes.

90 minute boil.

2 oz Galena, 60 minutes (SNPA says Nugget, but I didn't have any)
1 oz Perle, 15 minutes
2 oz Cascade, flameout

Wyeast 1056, one packet.

The plan is to run off 2.5 gallons, oxygenate, pitch the yeast, wait 36 hours, then add that 2.5 gallons to the remaining 7.5 gallons. I came up a little short on wort, so I'll only have about 9.5 gallons total. This is really like making a starter, but out of the same recipe rather than DME or plain 2-row. We'll see.
