From what I've read they say to add 375 ml per 5 gallons when you keg I'll add a little at a time until I get it where I want it.

Thanks Pat

Bottled my Toejam version (steeped in pantyhose) of this over the weekend. This has to be the best beer at this stage that I have brewed so far. This is brew number 8 for me. Even flat, it is great. Very dark but clear with really nice coffee and chocolate notes and a nice roasty finish. I usually just take a taste of the hydro sample for monitoring purposes. But this was so good, I drank the entire sample and the half bottle at the end that we did not quite get filled.

I would not use the Belgium Ale yeast. I would recommend using my Oktoberfest Ale recipe with some spices for a Christmas Ale.

Ok, My Coffee/Chocolate version of this is on the boil.
Had to make a few changes, and was pretty upset about it.
1st had no flaked barley, thought I did, really really thought I did
2nd had to use Target in place of Fuggels
3rd as per Ed added 8oz more of the Chocolate malt.

Well, pitched the Notty last night around 9pm (local) yeast was at approx 70f wort was at aboit 74f....

I could not get the temp to drop anymore that that with my chiller due to no ice and warm tap water temp....

Woke up this morning and nothing......just what was left from the foam when I aerated the wort.

Gonna give this until I come home from work tomorrow night, so almost 48, and if no dice I will re-pitch.

From Ed's original recipe, what is the IBU we're aiming for? Say I intend to use another hop (Phoenix - 10%).

I'm brewing this tomorrow (16/08/2009). Thanks!

A lot of people have been experiencing problems with Notty. There's a thread about it. Took 3 days for my last batch to take off with it. It did, however, do it's job and took it down to 1.011. I just kegged this batch 10 minutes ago so I can't say how it tastes (some people have experienced some off flavors). I'm also in the middle of washing this yeast. I'd like to see if I get the same lag time when it's repitched.

Be patient, it will take off. As long as you were clean and sanitary it should be fine.

I was wondering the same thing. I'm planning on using Magnum for mine.

Should be close to 50 IBUs. 47 is what I have in beersmith the first time I brewed this. Then again, I don't know if I really knew what I was doing as I had just gotten the program.

But hey, it placed in a comp!

Notty worked fine for me, actually, a little too good! Brewed on 8/22, airlock bubbling happily within 12 hours. Checked on it this morning and the top had blown off my Ale Pail! I was using a 3 piece airlock, it got clogged, boom. Nothing hit the ceiling but it made a pretty big mess around the bucket. I just hope nothing nasty got in there while the lid was off...
