I just started in January with Mr. Beer. I have since upgraded to 5 gallon. I bottled 5 galls of Oktoberfest yesterday, drank my first batch, have a mr. beer BrewHAHA conditioning, have another one to brew tonight, and I brewed a 5 gal. of honey oatmeal stout last night. A friend of mine said that if he catches me with over 100 gallons in my house, he's calling the feds! hahahaha

Tell him that's not funny I went from 0 gallons to over 80 gallons in three months. It has since stabilized at a more reasonable level but still.

i hope to god that you are kegging that 80 gal! That would be like 3600 bottles to find, clean, and then bottle!!!!!!!!! My project for the summer is to build a three tap kegerator!!!!!!!! That way I will only bottle things like cider, mead, and other novelistic drinks.

(Actually its only 800 or so. Still a pita but not as bad as 3600)

The nice thing is to get to a point in your pipeline where you are glancing through your BeerSmith brew log and realize that you have a beer that you have not even tried yet and it has been in bottle over 6 weeks. This happened to me this weekend. The beer was farging delicious.

Count me in. Made my first AG, a porter, few months ago, and ATM I have MO-Centennial SMaSH carbing in bottles and IPA in a primary

Here's a picture of that porter, three weeks in a bottle. Not fully carbed yet, and after 30 seconds there were no head anymore... but it tasted good already

Revvy, is the recipe for the chocolate mole porter posted somewhere? That sounds interesting. I would love to know how it comes out.

No...it's an experiment...I don't tend to post recipes like that until they're "ready."

But....Here's roughly what it is... 2.5 gallon recipe...

Amount Item Type
4 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain
1 lbs Munich Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM) Grain
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) Grain
8.0 oz Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM) Grain
8.0 oz Oats, Flaked (1.0 SRM) Grain

Mash Ingredients
Mash In: Add 8.13 qt of water at 170.5 F
45 min - Hold mash at 158.0 F for 45 min
-- Batch Sparge Round 1: Sparge with 0.21 gal of 168.0 F water.
-- Batch Sparge Round 2: Sparge with 1.47 gal of 168.0 F water.
-- Add water to achieve boil volume of 2.93 gal
-- Estimated Pre-boil Gravity is: 1.060 SG with all grains/extracts added

75 min 2.1 oz Milk Sugar (Lactose) (0.0 SRM) Sugar
60 min 0.50 oz Williamette [4.60 %] (60 min) Hops
30 min 0.25 oz Williamette [4.60 %] (30 min) Hops
5 min 0.50 cup Malto-Dextrine (Boil 5.0 min) Misc
2 min 0.50 oz Williamette [4.60 %] (2 min) Hops

2.5 disks Abuelita Brand Mexican Hot Chocolate + 1 tsp my chili powder in Mash tun. 1/4 disk @ 40 and 1/4 disk + 1 tsp Cayene pepper @ 2 minutes.



I won't vouch anything to how this recipe will be yet....I had a bottle by accident after 2 weeks in bottle...and the pepper burned...but it had no head yet, and no chocolate aroma...we'll see in a few weeks.
