I brewed a stout today and I was wondering, how long should I let it sit in the secondary after I transfer next week sometime? I'm saying 12 weeks...any thoughts? The OG is 1.086 - Cheers!

Glacier Pellets - 1 oz @ 60 mins
Tettnang Pellets - 1 oz @ 3 mins
Wyeast Labs London Ale

Process:
Slapped the piss out of the yeast @ ~4 hours
Steeped grains for 30 min @ 155° to 159°
Brought to boil & added DME
Added Warrior and Glacier Pellets @ 60 minutes
Added wort chiller @ 20 minutes
Added Yeast Nutrient capsule contents & Irish Moss @ 10 minutes
Added Tettnang Pellets @ 3 minutes
Chilled to 75° in ~10 minutes
Aerated wort between brew kettle and bucket 4 times
Added yeast, closed the lid, and filled the airlock w/ vodka

Stout? Where's the roast barley? LOL. Lots o' hops for a stout.

Not sure I'd call it a stout, perhaps call it an Imperal Stout. With a high OG like yours, 12 weeks is reasonable.

I'm sure this will taste very very good!

I know, I'm a big fan of hoppy beers...my last IPA had 5 oz in the boil and 2 oz for dry hopping

IMO, I'd consider dry hopping it. I think you got too much dark malts in there for any hops to come through.

I think you should let sit in Primary for at least three weeks, then transfer to Secondary for a couple months, bottle it and wait another two months or more. Just me two cents.

Do you really think the hops won't be apparent? I was sort of thinking the same and that's why I added the 2oz of warrior. What would you throw in the secondary?

so i think i originally miscalculated your ibus when i first said that, but anyway hops fade with time and with how much dark malts you have in there i have a feeling its going to be a pretty high fg . you have the right amount of bitterness for it, but if you wanted any hop flavor/aroma to come through i don't think you'll get much. I've personally just never seen a recipe with so much dark malt in it.

You're willing to invest 3 months in secondary, but only a week in primary?
