Cool, I was only thinking 154 because I always tend to hit the higher end of attenuation (sometimes higher).

Well I brewed it this Saturday with some adjustments. I decided I need 5 gallons, not 3, so I did a double mash.

The revised grain bill...

20lbs Pale 2 row
1lbs caramel 80
.8lbs chocolate malt
.5lbs black malt
.6lbs debittered black malt
1lbs toasted flaked oats

1oz northern brewer 90min
1oz williamette 90min
1oz goldings 60min
1oz goldings 15min
1oz goldings 5min

Pitched a shabby looking pack of 1056 that I has been starter-ing since Monday.


My OG was 1.095, airlock activity started about 3 hours after pitching. I kept the carboy in my Styrofoam cooler with some ice packs, its been 65 since Saturday. Yesterday the fermentation stared to visibly slow, and seems to be at a whisper today, so I check the hydrometer.... 1.022, damn thats 9.5%! I was all worried about low attenuation and poor yeast health. I hope it doesnt chew through muck more because its already drier then I had hoped for, right now it hardly even tastes green, and it hardly has ANY worming alcohol feel. So I guess it is a success so far. Everything I was afraid of with a big beer feels like boogeymen under the bed.
