Yes, definitely keep posting how this one comes along. I ordered the trappist 3787 from brewmasters warehouse, and after a phone call, the wlp 099 was subbed instead. Its not really the same (no belgian spice) but I look at it as an opportunity. I am in the planning stages of a 20% beer, let us know how it turns out.

How does degassing a beer aid in flocculation and how would you go about doing it?

You can use a wine degasser and a drill... or you could just swish the beer around a little to help knock out some of the C02

Yuri has a pretty sweet video of a degassing method using a vacuum sealer, read FoodSaver.

Freakin' cool degassing technique! (video)

Awesome plan with the beer. Looking forward to seeing the results.

So I had a question for those of you doing monster brews. I know that corn sugar is technically completely fermentable, but maybe it'd be nice to make it a little easier on your already highly stressed by inverting the sugar to fructose/glucose on the stove top for the sugar additions. Think this might help keep the yeast happy and improve attenuation?

How are you going to add all that sugar? If you're going to boil it in water than add it, you may run out of room in your fermenter!

I think I'm going to sprinkle it over the krausen dry. Its only a half pound of sugar every 12 hours... it should dissolve no problem while I stir around with my O2 stone.

So you're assuming that all the alcohol in solution eliminates any worry of infection?

I did this just recently with a 7% IPA. The sugar in the recipe added ~.71% more alcohol. Man did that thing take off after adding the sugar. It was a 1.2 lb addition.

Just a heads up, the corn sugar I use has a potential of 1.040. Beersmith claimed 1.046 but I actually measured 1 lb in 1 gallon to get a more accurate number.
