48 lbs of grain!!!!! I'd need a lauter tun... the size of yours! I'm kinda looking at this recipe as my own personal Everest. This stout is fundamentally badass on so many different levels. If you weren't a man of the Cloth, I'd be leery of it. Thank you in advance for posting this one!

What would the estimated FG be?

After looking at this recipe with anticipation, I will be brewing it this weekend.

Since my mashtun is too small, I am going to convert this to a partial mash. Do to lack of selection, I will be substituting American pale malt for the british pale and galenas for the columbus. I am crossing my fingers that this will balance well.

Wow! Well, I was wondering if wyeast 1272 could handle high alcohol, just made a old ale O.G. 1.082 with it. If the imperial stout works I guess that answers my worries.

Default 5 gallon batch


Could I do a 5 gallon batch by halving everything on the list?

14.8% Holy cow. Any Extract version or would that just ruin this?

Has anyone tried this recipe? If so, how did it come out?

BP (or anyone else),
I've been looking at brewing this on the yeast cake of another brew. Do you think if I used dry yeast for the initial brew (Safale-US 56/US 5) I could still ferment dry, or would I be left with a lower ABV and too much sweetness?

Thanks

Is this ready to drink yet, or does it need another decade to mellow.
