Some used American ale yeast from Westlake Brewing, others used a mixture of Altbier and Kolsch yeast from 5 gallon stirred starter.
Boil the 13# extract for 3 hours in 3 gallons of water. Add first 2 gallons of runoff to that. Sparge entire mash very slowly; it should take 90 minutes. Boil collected wort at hot, rolling boil entire time. When sufficient wort is collected, add the extract and first running to it. Then add hops and start 60 minute boil. Continue to collect wort until it falls below 1.40 or half hour, whichever comes first. Boil and concentrate that and add to kettle. Ferment wort as cool as ale yeast will allow. Mid to high 50's are ideal. Pitch a ton of yeast.
