Brewed mine yesterday. I ran into quite a few issues but I did end up with beer in the fermenters so that is good
I probably should not have gone for the parti-gyle since that added so much trouble having two brew pots going at the same time etc. Plus I was trying a new wort-chilling system (which sucked) so I'll be setting up ice-water recirculation at some point.
Anyway got about ~4 gallons of BarleyWine and 2.5 gallons of the smaller beer (should have been 4 gal.... siphon/hop issues).
I forgot to add the candi sugar during the boil, so I'm planning on doing that as a "feeding" sort of addition in a couple days. How do you all normally add it for incremental feedings? (I have 1 lb for the BW and .5 lb for the other beer)
Without the sugar I ended up with 1.106 BW and a 1.065 smaller beer.
The sugar should get me to right around 1.117 or so
