Default Old Rasputin Clone Recipe

Hello, all! This recipe turned out great! It tastes almost identical to Old Rasputin... super hoppy, chocolatey, and delicious. I've got a good friend named Vasily who is very Russian and has a huge beard, so I decided to call it "Old Vasily's Russian Imperial Stout." Below is the beer label I made and the recipe!

A delayed thank you for this. I am drinking my first ever Old Rasputin as I type this, and I can't wait to brew my own!

I'm brewing a very similar one right now. It is in the secondary right now. I used 12 lbs of Pilsen light LME, same steeping grains and two oz of galena hops for the boil. I also used safale us 5 yeast. I am anxious to see how it turns out. I just wish I could put it on nitro

Ahhh, I hear you. It'd be so nice to have a nitro tap... I eventually will get one on my kegerator and get a beer gas tank. Let me know how your beer turns out!

How did it turn out once carbonated? Seems like a lot of corn sugar for a 5 gallon RIS.

It actually wasn't too high at all, at least for my personal taste.

Looks like a great recipe that I am definitely trying soon! I do have a question though (noob question alert). The 38 day aging in the keg...would that be under serving pressure throughout that time? If so, why the 75 degree temp since I was under the impression that was for yeast activity in bottle conditioning? Thanks for the help.

Not a noob question at all, and a great thing to notice! It was actually a mistake on my part. That should say 40*F temp, not 75*F! You are right in that the 75 degree temp is for bottle conditioning, and I just forgot to change it to 40 degrees.

Hi Folks,

I just wanted to pass this bit of info along from Northcoast Asst. Head Brewer Ken Kelly:

"Most people will have a hard time believing this but we carbonate the Old Rasputin up to 3.0 It is such a full bodied beer we feel this level of carbonation makes it a less cloying more drinkable product, we hope you agree."
