  Two new high gradient C100 cryostats with a total of 16 new cavities were installed at the end of the CEBAF south linac during the 2011 summer shutdown as part of the 12 GeV upgrade project at Jefferson Lab. We ran recirculating beam breakup (BBU) study in November 2011 to evaluate CEBAF low energy performance, measure transport optics, and evaluate BBU thresholds due to higher order modes (HOMs) in these cavities. This paper discusses the experiment setup, cavity measurements, machine setup, optics measurements, and lower bounds on existing CEBAF C100 BBU thresholds established by this experiment.
