Default I am brewing this one


Started Nov. 5 and hit 1.090 and today Nov 18 SG 1.017 and still perking.

I made a mini Russian second runnings with 1 lb corn sugar and 2.2 lbs of dark malt in powder form. SG to start 1.056 and today was 1.007 so I cold crashed it to keg in the next few days. Both taste awesome! The Imperial will be aged until March. Thanks for this winner!

Brewed two days ago. Substituted 2.2 oz warrior @ 60 minutes and 1.5 liter starter of 1028 (london ale). Looking like a good one. Thanks for the recipe.

Bottled my first version of this today. Brew day was 7/21, racked it to secondary on 8/19. OG was 1.094, FG 1.019. I added a packet of cheap Munton's dry yeast to the bottling bucket to ensure there's enough active yeast to carbonate.

Right after fermentation was complete it had a rather harsh, fusel-y flavor. But that has been mellowing. It isn't quite there yet, but the rich dark malt complexity is moving forward and I think this will end up an excellent beer.

Glad to hear it still mellowed.
I brewed this in early september and tasted last week. It does seem to be mellowing from when I first put it in the secondary. Was hoping for a nice holiday gift, but I think I may delay bottling more. I put Laproig soaked oak chips in, and the peaty flavor of the scotch comes through nicely. Last I measured it was at 1.019 after starting at 1.092.

I used about 2 oz of oak chips. I truly wish I tracked how long I left them in, but my best guess is is 5 weeks. I think I left it in a bit long, but it is hard to tell. First time using chips in any beer for me, so I am just guessing.

Brewed This about 4 an 1/2 months ago and Figured I would share my result. Left in the primary for 3 weeks at 67 -70˚F, then racked to secondary for the remainder of the 4.5 months. My OG was 1.084 and final was 1.019. The beer tastes phenomenal. Good balance of hops with predominant chocolate malt flavor with a hint of fruity esters. Very smooth with a small hop bite at the end. Worth the wait. Thanks for the great recipe!

So the grains have arrived and i picked up the yeast (Wyeast London Ale 1028). Going to make a starter today. Just a few questions as this will be my first all grain that is not a kit from Austin Homebrew.

1. Does anyone have this already in a program like Brewtarget or beersmith that they want to share?

2. To whoever added coffee how much and when? The plan is to cold brew it.

Thanks!

After discussing with a master roaster at a local coffee shop in Frederick, MD we decided that an extreme espresso blend would go perfectly with the RIS. At about 32oz. I basically did a cold brew with a french press. Boiled the water. Let it cool in the fridge. Added grains and press. Let it sit for a few days in the fridge. Then added directly to the secondary.
