FINALLY picked up the ingredients for this after months of procrastinating. This looks awesome.
Gonna go with S-04 though, like wormraper. Really looking forward to drinking one of these.

I just finished this as my second brew ever! Like NineMillbill I got an OG reading of 1.056 and not the 1.048 that is in the recipe. From what I read, that doesn't sound like too big of a deal...

It should be ready right around the end of October... and it sounds like the perfect November beer.

Default Slow Fermentation


What kind of fermentation did you guys get with this recipe?? Its Thursday and I brewed this on Tuesday. After about 5 hours there was some slow bubbling in the 3 piece on top of the bucket, but that only lasted about 7 hours and since then its been very inactive. I pulled the 3 piece and peaked inside and could see that there was a healthy head of brown foam at the top and it smelled decent (like beer). I had just expected a longer and more viscous fermentation with the brown sugar and 6 lbs of Amber DME. The Fermentation temperature is about 69 to 70 on the outside of the bucket and i know that the wert was cool enough for the yeast, it was at 70 degrees when I pitched it.
Any comments on how yours went would be great to hear so i know if i should take some sort of action.
Thanks!!!!

Update*

Very sad... I tasted this prior to bottling and it was soooooo good. I bottled it and now it taste like boiled rubber in the nose and in the mouth. I suspect using tap water to bottle the beer is the culprit

Ok after putting the beer in the fridge for a couple days the beer is losing the rubber taste and smell and is evolving a grape like flavor from the yeast... very interesting. I can tell the taste is not melded together yet and still has some funk (no cold crash) I think some time in the fridge will make this bomb

Edit: I noobed all over this beer

I have to concur with everyone here. I let this stuff ferment for 40 days, carb'd it up nice and slow and holy SHI*T it is good. I had three beers on tap and a party the other day and this beer was FAR and away the favorite! I have many requests to have this on tap all year!! It really is wonderful

I brewed some of this on 11/11/13. I followed the recipe, but I substituted one 3.3 lb. can of Briess Rye LME for three lbs. of amber DME. The smell of this while it was fermenting was incredibly good. I can't wait to try some. It'll be ready around Christmas time.

two weeks in the fridge and its tasting really good, exactly what I want from a Nut Brown. I'm going to post a picture of the pint once I actually get my second case in the fridge
