Default All-Grain - Gargoyle Imperial Stout

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: 1728 Scottish Ale Wyeast
Yeast Starter: Yes - 1 c DME/Qt
Batch Size (Gallons): 6
Original Gravity: 1.105
Final Gravity: 1.026 (projected)
IBU: 30
Boiling Time (Minutes): 120
Color: Black
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): Still there
Tasting Notes: Malty, thick and roasty. Just what I was looking for.

Brewed this up yesterday. Killer efficiency. 1.106 OG. Mid 80's brewhouse efficiency. A touch surprisingly the yeast has not kicked in yet after 12 hours. Crossing my fingers it's not too shocked...but it was a good solid starter, so I think it is just slow.

The Northern Brewer was the way to go. Just what I was looking for. I think you were dead on frankstoneline - I didn't like the hop flavor profile.

I left the peated where it was, but the cosmos conspired on me to make me think fast on my feet about the Special B - the store was out. So after much sampling, I settled on malt I've never tried as a sub - Bohemian malt - at the full 1.5 lbs. Somehow I ended up with an extra 16 oz of chocolate malt - help of an 10 year old in the shop I think...so I tossed it in too.

They result so far....malty roasty goodness - no where over the top for my tastes.
