Definitely bring some to the meeting! Ask for Rick

For the vanilla next time, split the bean and scrape out the seeds, and add it all into the brew. Some people even chop up the pod as well. Cracking the cinnamon, or adding ground, will give it more surface area, possibly giving more flavor.

Eulipion, you wouldn't happen to be the Rick from Richmond that I know, are you? Spend a bit of your time following a band around the country? Big into screen printing? And the damn Jets?

Apparently there are multiple Ricks in the club but unfortunately no, different Rick. He sounds far more exciting than me

CoopersGoose, when you get a chance could you please post that brewsmith recipe that you altered?

Thanks!

Default Goose's Gingerbread Stout #2

Let's try this one.

From Hardywoods website:
OG 1.100
ABV 9.2%
Color: 40L
Bitterness (IBU): 55

Here's what I've come up with in BeerSmith, and based on my previous results as a second batch. Based on BeerSmiths numbers and my estimates from losses

5.5 lbs Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3 SRM)
5.5 lbs Victory Malt (25 SRM)
1.5 lbs Biscuit Malt (23 SRM)
0.75 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt - 120L
1 lb Chocolate Malt (350 SRM)
1 lb Oats, Flakes (1 SRM)
2.0 oz Black Barley (Stout) (500 SRM)
1.5 lbs Lactose
1.5 lbs Honey
0.5 lbs Malto-Dextrine - Boil 15 minutes
3 oz. Challenger (7.5% AA) - Boil 60 minutes
5 oz. Ginger - Boil 12 minutes
5 Sticks Cinnamon - Boil 5 minutes
5 Vanilla Beans - Boil 5 minutes


Mash 156F for 90 Minutes in 24.92 Qts water 166.7F
Batch Sparge with 2 steps (Drain Mash Tun, 4.03 gal) of 168F water
Estimated pre-boil gravity 1.075 SG

Estimated OG: 1.099
Bitterness (IBUs): 54
Color: 39.9 SRM
Est. ABV: 11.0%

I intend to use the same baby ginger and honey as indicated in previous threads. Tom Leonards has the honey, not sure yet where to acquire the ginger, but haven't really looked yet.

Added Malto-Dextrin to help add some body and sweetness, as well as upped the lactose a bit. Like the idea of adding honey into secondary, but will likely simply add to boil like before. Any thoughts on increasing final gravity without the alcohol. This is running a little high.

Let me know if anyone gives it a go. I'll do the same!

Any updates on the attempt? Last post was end of Jan. - just checking in. I've brewed a couple of other batches but haven't gone back and attempted to brew this again. I'll crack open a bottle of the original and give an update.

Ahh man, family events happened and I haven't attempted it yet. My cousin lives near the brewery and they get the same honey so I should be able to source that from richmond, just need to make the drive down soon. I will definitely let you know when I give this a go.

Hopefully I'll be brewing soon. This is my next brew, just need funding. And it occurs to me that I wasn't at the Feb meeting. If you still have any by the March meeting bring it. I have to be there for that one - I'm leading the presentation!

Had a glass tonight. Bottles overflow with foam. Disappointed in that for sure. Flavor doesn't seem affected. My guess is that I bottled too early. Thinking about dumping remaining into keg to see if I can correct. I've read some having bigger beers take longer to carb, but it's been a while now since I bottled, have to chek notes. This beer has good flavor, not totally off target. Will debate next steps.
