Good god that is huge. BP, you forgot to enter 'farking massive' under starter.

I'm not sure I can do this one in my 10 gal rubbermaid MLT. It's also not direct fired(obviously, plastic no like fire), so I won't be able to get back up to 168 for initial mash out.

Holy crap! I glanced over the grain bill, but then looked again.... A 10gal batch would be close to a sack of grain PLUS the sugar!


sheeeeeite...... Thats big......

Oh hey, looking over it, is the american ale yeast going to be able to cut it? or should we go for the abby yeast? I dont have a claculator in front of me but I think the american ale yeast is supposed to crap out ~10%, and that looks like a 11-12% beer depending on FG.....


If I am wrong, please let me know.

That looks awesome. It will definitely challenge my setup. I mash/lauter in a five gallon bucket (wrapped with a wool blanket, thank you very much) and I found myself pretty much near capacity when I brewed an IPA with a 14 pound grain bill. I'm thinking that my maximum gravity for 5 gallons of mashed wort isn't much more than 1.080.

I am leaning toward just doing this as a 3-gallon batch which works out to a bit less than 16 pounds into the mash.

Seems like there ought to be plenty of "juice" left in the mash for a full 5-gallon partigyle batch once I run of the BW wort. For which, by the way, I'm glad to see that we're not using any smoke in the base recipe.

A good starter of Cal. Ale will eat this all up. The Abbey will give it an Abbey character which some might want but I don't think that should be the base yeast.

We could go smaller and make something in the 1.099 range, but I personally thing 1.119 will be awesome! DME could be used if MLTs are on the edge of capacity.

Why is Prince's "1999" going through my head?!

That is the first thing I thought of. So what is the 9-9-9 small beer going to be? I have not yet done a Partigyle so I am not sure how the calculations go. How many gravity points will we be looking at.

Also, I am gonna smoke the begezzus out of that Sounds like I have a reason to build my new fanged smoking contraption I have been dreaming about...

Remember this is the default recipe. I'd suggest you get as close as yo can to the exact ingredients, but subbing in hops will certainly be necessary for many given the "environment" we're in.

Here's a Hops Guide to help you decide on suitable substitutes.

Pale Chocolate though, means ordering from morebeer. Not that I don't like them, but just an FYI, they're the only ones that carry it I think. Recipe looks great otherwise, I might sub that one for something else( like half the amount of reg. choclate malt). I realize its not the same though.

WOWZERS what a grain bill...This may be a 3 gallon batch. As others have said, the 10gallon cooler MLT aint' gonna cut it for a 5 gallon batch. SWMBO already doesn't understand why I have 2 MLT's (5/10gal) I can't imagine her understanding the third! HA HA HA.
