+1 on the blow off tube. Especially if you use a starter and ferment above 65F.

Brewed mine on Oct 6th and has been in primary ever since. I started crash cooling it this morning in a water bath with ice and ice packs. Hope to have as much yeast fall out of suspension as possible until thursday when I plan to keg it (my first kegged beer!). I can't wait to try this brew off the tap.

oh man is it great! - have just tap'd into my 2nd keg of this and i think this will be a staple around here for a while i plan on starting another one of these this weekend! Our first keg didn't even finish fully carbing and was tap'd out in 4 days If the fan fair for this keeps up with my friends, i will have to start asking for a $1 a pint donation to help with the ingredient costs :P

I am brewing this bad boy up tonight. I'm doing a 5-gal batch in a 6.5-gal primary, I'm going to be gone all weekend, and I don't have a blow off tube. I'm scared to walk back into my place Sunday night after hearing of all the misfortunes from other people brewing this recipe!

I'll follow up in about 2 months and let you know how it tastes. I'm going to be bottling so I want to make sure it's carbed enough. I hope it's a keeper!

Go to Home Depot, Lowes, or Wally World and get yourself some clear tubing. It will save yourself cleaning time and you from losing a batch. This thing can get violent.

Trying the extract version of this today. I'm stuck doing a partial boil at ~ 2.5 gallons. Should I adjust the lactose?

Thanks for the tip on the blow-off tube. I usually just use an air-lock but will definitely pick up some tubing today. Beer all over the kitchen floor could bring abrupt halt to my new addiction.

If you are making a 2.5 gallon batch, then yes, cut the lactose in half. If you are making a 5 gallon batch but only boiling 2.5 gallons, then no... leave the lactose level the same.

I guess I was one of the lucky ones. Probably because I fermented on the low side of the temp range. I did end up with krauesen in my airlock and around my lid though.

Brew day went well except my OG was off the charts at 1070!
Glad I went with the blow-off.

Does anybody see any harm in bottling this bad boy up at 2 1/2 weeks? I used S-04.

Alright, this brew has been a long time in the coming for me, but I finally just pulled my first pint of this beer from my keg and it is pretty dang good. I changed the name to Socks Off Sweet Stout because I made a few changes to the original recipe and when I was working on this one my infant son was going through a phase where he was constantly pulling is socks off.

I'm new to kegging and still getting a lot of foam/head, so I will have to work on fixing that, but otherwise it's working great. It's still a little undercarbed, but almost there. Here's a pic I took tonight.



I can't wait to share this with my family when they come to visit for Thanksgiving. I highly recommend making this recipe if you want a solid, delicious sweet/cream stout. It looks great and won't scare off the light beer drinkers, if you can get them to at least try it.
