So I haven't done a big beer yet and with winter approaching I thought it b something to try and I can just let it sit forever lol wanted to do an imperial stout or imperial ipa so I thought what the hell ill just do a imperial black ipa lol I'm open for suggestions or thoughts or criticism let me hear it I already have everything so ill be brewing it Sunday and since I don't think my 10 gal mash tun will b big enough I'm going to use my sparge cooler also and pretty much have to mash tuns with my work in progress keggle as my sparge tank!
Also I currently have a 1600 ml starter going which I'm goin to decant tomorrow night and pitch into a half gallon starter

So ya It was a awesome brew day busting out some toys mainly just a pump but I had like 15' of left over copper so I used that as a make shift herms coil in my boil kettle. I olso used my homemade garden hose chiller which worked awesome came out at like 65 degrees from boil so that made me happy I officially love pumps. I ended up going with a 60 minute boil and leaving out all the first 30 min additions which brought my ibu's to like 86sh. I had a pretty solid mash at about 153 degrees started to fall at the end tho hit my gravity rite on the money at 1.110, I also did a second running recirculating that as well hit a O.G. At about 1.049 which I was a ill surprised didn't think it would b that at high but it'll b interesting I think! ended up doing a 90 min boil cause I was a kinda high on my volume I used a similiar hop schedule with that beer! Used a half gallon starter that took off in about 12 hours 3/4 in the big beer 1/4 in the ill guy! Fermentation in the big beer has been insane glad I went straight to the blowoff tube and the little one has been bubbling away! If the big one gets stuck I plan on just racking the lil one into secondary and putting the big one on that yeast cake! To finish it up shooting for 1.024 F.G. c what happens! It looks awesome super dark and a very brown head
