I always add my flameout additions right as I turn the heat off. I give it a stir and start chilling.

Thanks for clarifying.

P.S. Do you still feel this is one of the best you've brewed?

Any chance you can post the updated Beer Tools file?

Yes, this is probably the best hoppy beer I've made so far. I think I like my barley wine more, but it's totally different.

The BTP file is gone forever due to a hard drive crash.

Default 4 month additional fermentation?


Hey Bobby. I just saw the note in the recipe about additional fermentation. I will be bottle conditioning this beer, because that is what I can do now. Any tips on priming amounts, and "do I really need to wait 4 months" to enjoy this?

Thanks! (for all you do!)

No, this beer was just fine at 6 weeks. I'd prime it at 4oz corn sugar per 5 gallons or 5oz if you really like the fizz.

Default This ought to be interesting...


Bobby,

I scaled the recipe to 5 gallons in BTP. No problem. While I was at the LHBS I saw the chocolate malt qty at .5oz, thought it looked wrong, and then bought .5lb like the rest of the scaled values. I checked again when I got home and realized that the .5oz was in fact correct. Still no problem.

Well, when it came time to mash in, I completely forgot that I bought the wrong .5 lb amount, instead of .5oz. and added the full .5 lb of choc malt to the mash! Well, it's still gonna be beer! According to BTP, my batch now falls well within the specs for an American Brown Ale.

It is now happily bubbling away on top of the yeast cake of S-05 from my last batch.

Like I said this'll be interesting. I will let you know how it tastes in 6 weeks.

I'm sure it will be fine. In my batch, the choc was just added for a touch more color and the 2oz of wheat was just because I had it in the leftovers bin. You might actually come up with something pretty good. At least it wasn't roasted barley or black malt.

Hey Bobby, I bottle this batch last night. If the half pint or so that I had during bottling (warm and flat) is any indicator, this slight mistake is gonna be great. After my scaling snafu, the numbers landed right in the middle of the American Brown Ale class.

At this point, the only thing I wish I had done is double the dry hop amarillo to better the nose.





I will update once carb'd. Cheers!
