-Soak oak cubes in bourbon and 3/4 cups espresso for 7 days during primary fermentation.

I was following your other thread on this. I'm guessing it turned out well?

So far, so good. The difficult part is carbonating it. I've been keeping it in the warm room and shaking up all the bottles here and there, trying to get everything to ferment out okay and give me more carbo. But it tastes just absolutely awesome.

It's pretty simple, actually. Keep the recipe basically the same, steep the specialty grains rather than mashing them, and sub 9.5 lbs of DME or 12.5 lbs of LME for the Maris Otter. It gets expensive, given the cost of extract, but that's how you do it.

Evan!, FYI for next time, one of the brewers/employees at Avery brings his dog to the same dog park that I go to, he let it leak that they use Wyeast 3787 for Mephistophiles, among other beers they brew (Salvation and the Reverend). He said that with the dark malts, it combines to create a cherry/plum flavor that is present in Meph. Personally, I have not tried meph (going to the release party for the 2007 batch next week!), but I did just do a Russian Imperial Stout with 3787, the OG was 1.080, it is down to about 1.024 right now and still going, I expect it to get to about 1.018 or so if I get the max 78% attenutation out of it. It can handle up to 12% ABV, and I bet it can go higher if it is used by Avery for Meph. at 15% ABV or so. Right now, the flavors the strain has produced in my stout are very interesting, I am getting some cherry, apricot, and a little bananna (the last of which I know fades with aging).

Reviving the dead here to ask if anyone can think of a good parti-gyle to come out of this. A dubbel maybe? I'm gonna brew it up when i get my 3787 ready. Thanks for the input all, and thanks to evan for creating this beast. -b!

be more like a mild I would think. 6 lbs of that sugar is not in the mash, and there is a lot of dark grain in there.

But I love a good mild!
