Thanks Bill. I'll rebrew in a couple weeks to send in to nationals :)

I'm telling you, it's the ferulic acid rest!

Congrats Nesto! Well done!
I have also been playing with the ferulic acid rest - the BM makes hitting this spot during the mash a snap!
Curious if you use bottled O2 at pitch and if so - how much you introduce into your wheat beers?
Do you use any more/less than other beer styles/yeasts?

Yes - I have a simple regulator, so I just go for 90 seconds. I sometimes oxygenate high gravity beers a second or third time.
