Good call, I need to pull a grav to see how my Cry Havoc did. It's been sitting undisturbed in primary this whole time.

I actually went from about 1.118 to 1.024. In August I thought it was done at 1.030. I think time will take it down a few more points if that's what you're looking for.

I'm calling mine done at 1.04 too. But then again mine started at 1.150. I would think yours would get a little lower. Maybe your mash was hotter then you thought.

Yeah I would think you would be 1.030 or lower. I did a step mash 131*F 15 minutes, 150*F 60 minutes and it went from 1.119 - 1.023 with SafAle US-05 in 12 days.

Beersmith estimated my FG at 1.047 but I find beersmith to run a bit on the high side in this category. I mashed at 150-152* for an hour...no mash out, very little sparge. I missed my target OG by 0.052, quite a bit, but I had a huge grain bill filling a 70Q cooler, and not much experience with big beers (which I hope to change soon). I did rack this to secondary already, but I'm wondering if I can pitch some fresh yeast (starter slurry, of course) and get it come down a bit further...

Well, I am not in the swap, but I got my first half of this great recipe brewed up tonight as a commemorative brew for my pending daughter. I did 1/2 of the grain bill and did the second runnings for a "free beer". Going to do it all over again tomorrow. Probably going to boil the BW for an extra 20-30 minutes to get the SG up a little... Round one ended up at 3 1/2 or so gallons at about 1.092. Quick look while cleaning, haven't finished measuring yet.

I don't think it could hurt.

I'm upset that i started all grain brewing too late. I may just brew the recipe for the hell of it.

Good God man. Did you have to use a spoon to scoop that wort into the fermenter?

Kinda missed the point of the 9-9-9 huh? (1.119) And I mean that in a good way.

Uh....I feel really stupid right now.

btw, i had a friend who brews BW's taste my "infected" batch and he said it tastes like a flat young Barleywine. I'm not totally convinced but I am hopeful.
