Default Port/Sherry Beer from Radical Brewing

I just brewed the Sherry-like beer from Radical Brewing - has anyone else done this and have any experiences they'd like to share?

I have not had the beer from Radical Brewing... care to share your tasting notes? I just put a post up asking for suggestions for a brew that has flavors echoing tawny ports. I'll have to look at the Radical Brewing recipe later tonight.

It's currently aging. I'll probably bottle sometime in August 2010...

I'm curious about this beer as well. Any updates from those who have brewed it? How did the brewing and fermentation go? Any snags along the way? Have you tasted the results?

sorry to tell you but i don't think the OP's gonna answer. she's got 3 posts total and the last one was january2010.

if this is the "toward a portlike beer" then it does look interesting. i guess it's a beer fortified with tons of booz:
- 16 oz 190 proof
- 34 oz 90 proof
- 40 oz 80 proof

that's 90 oz of booz in there! on top of that you've got either 12 lb grain, 11 lbs of liquid extract, 9 lb of DME in 3 gal h20. since there's a two page how to i couldn't image you could screw this up, but wow is it ever over the top. since i just acquired a 3 gal carboy this might be a good experiment for the winter

Too funny about the assumptions.

Let us know how it tastes. I think it'd be a good brew to go with cigars and I love my cigars.

my apologies, i stand corrected through and thru. i swear your profile said female - very sorry about that. i'm super curious to know how it turns out. what liquor are you going to fortify with? i guess the outcome of this brew could be quite variable depending on the booz you chooz

No problem about the gender mix up...I've been called much worse.

I actually fortified with some good quality brandy - my notes on what it was and the amount are around here somewhere.

Since I'm bottling this uncarbonated, I wonder if there's such a thing as bottle shock with something like this. If so, how long should I wait to try it?
