2 1/2 months in, it's amazing. Going to start another batch next week with a little less molasses and maybe a touch of allspice.

When you add licorice:

1.) How much do you add?
2.) What kind is used?
3.) When do you add it?

I happen to love the taste of licorice, but I stay away from the cheap stuff. I only eat the stuff that has real licorice extract (I can tell the difference).

Is it harder to get a stout like this to carb up?

Man, I really want to brew this one!

I don't know about this exact recipe but generally
More ethanol means the yeast are more strained and ethanol doesn't 'hold' gas as well as water does either, so it takes longer

Probably not telling you anything new though

I am wondering how you obtained 66 IBUs from this recipe... with an 11% aa rating on the target hops, I get around 37 IBUs.

I did a similar recipe today with Brewer's Gold hops and I am worried my IBUs are too low at around 33 IBUs... (aa was 9.4% on my hops.)

Or did you do a full boil?

I am trying this for my first batch (probably will do a quicker batch once I get this out of primary). Mental note to self - get a 6.5 carboy - 1.5 days in and I must have blown off a gallon at least, with no signs of stopping. Using Nottingham's at 65F, and matched the OP's gravity before pitching.

Anyone who has brewed this or similar: any special advice on priming/bottling? I have been reading that carbonation is sometimes tricky with HG beers but the guidance around this seems to run the gamut. Thanks in advance!

Mine is fermenting like mad right now. Glad I did a starter, but I wonder if I should have made a bigger one (I did 1 Quart.)

This is going to be my first time brewing the imperial stout, I have 3 madagascar vanilla beans shaved/chopped and sitting in vodka to add to the secondary, any helpful tips?
