If i remember correctly, Rogue uses Great Western Munich (which they list as 8-10L) so I would just go with that. Coloring models need to be taken with a grain of salt. Brew it once, see how it turns out on your system (it'll make a great beer regardless), and adjust if necessary. I didn't pay much attention to what the software predicted and my color came out very close to the real deal.

I scaled to 5.5 gallon and brewed this Sunday. Was a little over my starting gravity and can't wait to taste it.

The mash run-off was 1.067 and the first runnings were 1.035. Post-boil gravity was 1.070 and I nailed 5.5 gallons.

It's fermenting now with a 1800 ML starter @ 60 degrees. After hitting it with 60 seconds of O2 through a 200 micron stone, the batch took off in approximately 3 hours.

How long should I let this sit at 60 degrees before ramping it up AND how qiuckly should it be kegged?

I brewed this clone a couple weeks ago but I couldn't find pacman yeast. Wound up using WLP001 - Cal Ale. It's been sitting on CO2 in a keg for 1.5 weeks and am curious to find out how it tastes. Finally found pacman yeast at MoreBeer (Doh!). I'm wondering how White Labs San Diego Super Yeast compares to PacMan.
