Default All-Grain - Scotch Ness Monster (Wee Heavy)

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Wyeast 1728
Yeast Starter: 0.5 gallon
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.085
Final Gravity: 1.022
IBU: 28
Boiling Time (Minutes): 120
Color: Dark Amber
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 d @ 58˚F
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 28 @ 60˚F
Tasting Notes: Caramel, fruity esters, mild cocoa and roasted malt, hint of hops and booze.

NOTE: This was when my mashing procedure was still quite inefficient (60%), so unless you want a 9.5-10.5% ABV beer, I would suggest cutting down on the amount of grain.

*IBU listed is incorrect. Actual IBUs=37. SRM is 28

Grain Bill:
15 lb. 2-row Pale (Briess)
2 lb. Crystal 40L (Briess)
1 lb. Crystal 80L (Briess)
1 lb. Amber (Crisp)
0.5 lb. Chocolate (Briess)
1 lb. Dark Brown Sugar

Hops:
1.5 oz. US Fuggles (4.5% AA) @ 60
1.5 oz. US Fuggles @ 30

Strike Water:
6.6 Gallons @ 170˚F to settle at 157˚F

60-minute mash

Sparge Water:
4.3 Gallons @ 170˚F

120-minute Boil:
Once Wort reaches a boil, turn off the heat and completely stir in the brown sugar. Turn the heat back on and boil 60 minutes.
1st hop addition with 60 min to go.
2nd hop addition with 30 min to go.
Irish Moss with 15 min to go.

Definitely one of the best beers I have ever made. It takes time, but it is well worth it. I would recommend shortening the primary fermentation and lengthening the secondary by an equivalent amount though.

I want to try this one again with some bourbon-soaked oak chips or peated malt!

Cheers!
