Finished fermentation at 1.040, which is a little on the high side. It tastes awesome, with a really balanced flavor. Next time I will pitch two packs of S-05 or S-33 for a beer this large. I probably underpitched the Pacman by a considerable margin. This will be bottled and definitely repeated.

1.040?!? That certainly seems high how long was it aged? I mean 1.040 would be close to the OG for a really light beer. If you haven't bottled it yet I suggest you keep aging it.

Unless of course this is just an unavoidable tasting which occurred while the beer was still in the carboy.

1.040 is terribly far off the target gravity, I would certainly be weary, but its not sooo far off.

It was in primary for a month. It was definitely done. I attempted to pitch some Notty to push it but it was only good for 4 points. Oh well, it did taste awesome and my wife and sister in law thought the warm, flat sample was great. My Sis-in-law said that it made her want to have a steak dinner.

Next time I'll rock two packets of S-05 or S-33 for this and future big beers. Lesson learned, oh well, still ended up with tasty beer.....dammit.

I am looking at 100IBU or so that this can age a bit. Currently, at 10 months in a bottle, the bitterness needed to balance it is gone.

I have some 16.6AA Zeus and 11.2AA Centennial. I'm going to go larger with the bittering hops.

Did you brew it yet??

Not yet... I had a hankerin' for a DIPA. Read the article in Zymurgy, and had to create a 7.5%, big hop bomb. By the time the dry-hop takes place there will be just shy of a pound of hops in the 5.5 gallon batch.

And, there was also a need for a Belgian pale. The stout will be brewed by August.

Looking forward to it... I cracked a W tonight and man its tasty! I took one to Left Hand brewery and somehow the brewmaster was sitting there beside me and the bartender poured 6 samples out. Everyone loved it including the brewmaster. He said he loved the roasty beginning and gave me a few pointers.. Bottled my hobgoblin II tonight as well.. I was thinking a belgian myself. Was looking at the westy or I saw a triple IPA out there too..

Looks great!

What is Black Barley? Is it the same as black patent or something different? Looking for it at BrewMaster's Warehouse.
