I hate pulling the lid off more than I need to.
Moving it to 74 at this point will not cause off flavors or cause your beer to somehow lose it's maltiness. Off flavors or excessive esters are primarily produced if the temperature is too high during the propogation phase and you are well beyond that.....you are just trying to coax a little more attenuation out of the yeast.........IMO 1030 will be a little syrupy sweet but if it tastes good, serve it as a nice after dinner treat......I have a feeling it is going to drop a few more points at 74 degrees.

How do you think this would work with Munich as the base? Say use 12lbs Munich and 2lbs Marris Otter (leaving some in because MO has more diastic power for the specialty grains).

That could be a little heavy on the Munich, but I was recently thinking since malty is the name of the game with this ale, that a pilsen and munich base would be really nice...split 50/50...I have no doubt that MO and Munich split 50/50 would be a nice base too.

a little warm up, no higher than 70. and a good gentle swirl to re-suspend yeast.

I did brew this as advertised. Amazing! I hardly have any left at all. Its going to have to be brewed again soon, as I really want more. Had it vs. a Three Floyds Robert the Bruce and it as a lot more flavor, and a wonderfully dense, creamy head. Aromas of nuts, toffee, and malt, very worth the effort!

Yeah, mine is long gone, time for another batch of deliciousness. I am not sure, and I know it is not to style, but I think I might use WLP007 isntead of nottingham this time around.

I am glad you liked it.

I looked at the specs of the WLP007 and I have that one earmarked for an imperial smoked and oaked stout. Seems like a well attenuated and reasonably high flocculation too. Tomorrow is brew day, and Febrewary continues!

Nottingham, WLP001 and Pacman just seem to suck the body right out of my beers, regardless of mash temp. My experience with WLP007 shows that it does attenuate well, but leaves more body and maltiness apparent in the finished product.

Has anyone brewed this with a single infusion mash? If so, at what temp and how did it turn out?

I have not, but I have no doubt that the beer would still be good. When I brew this again I will be making the following changes...

Yeast = WLP007
Hops = 25 IBU of willamette at 90
Single Infusion Mash at 155 for 90 minutes
