I just wanted to know where most of you guys are finishing? OG 1.092. A week in and I'm at 1.030. I used wyeast London ale and made a large starter. This one took off in 2 hours.

This beer usually finishes between 1.026-1.030 for me.

Just wanted to say thank you for this recipe. Brewed this about 6 weeks ago and it is already absolutely delicious. This is everything I love about an imperial stout. Thick, chocolatey, roasty, some raisin, perfect balance of hops. This is seriously one of the best RIS's I have ever had. I can't wait for 6 months to be up when it's already this incredible.

Seriously, a big thanks for sharing.

Tony

I brewed this last night. Hit 1.089 so a bit low, but should be fine. I then did a Parti gyle brew and got about 4 gallons at 1.053 which i used some leftover fuggles and ekg in.

So everything went pretty well. Can't wait to try this one.

Wow.. brewed this today.. as a BIAB.. just dont.. I'm sure the beer is wonderful.. but the ammounts of trub you get with this as BIAB.. took us 6 hours to brew since we had a hard time getting the temps up cause of the mash being so thick (should have gone for a smaller batch) but alot of trub.. filters kept plugging while transfering it to the primary so that took 1,5 hours to get it clear enough.. heh


Hopefully we dont have any contaminants and it'll turn out good
