I have done a few parti-gyle brews. if you don't mind me chiming in here.... i would suggest doing a small batch say 2.5 gallons after boil from the second runnings, you could probably make a nice porter out of it. I fear if you try to make a full 5 gallon batch that the body will be very light, but its up to your preferences.

Wow, never in a million years would have thought to try WLP002 on a RIS, but I'll have to split my Gatos Locos with half WLP002 next time I brew it.

Yes, this was in fact a happy accident. I had planned on using 001 but when I want to LHBS to pick up my ingredients I didn't buy any yeast because I assumed that the vial I had in the fridge was 001. Of course I get home and ready to make a starter and learn it's 002. Oops. I'm lazy so the 20 minute drive back to the store to get yeast was out of the question and I just decided to give it a shot. Now I'm glad I did!

That's kinda what I did...

I brewed this beer yesterday and kept sparging after I had collected enough for the first boil.

I did two separate boils ended up with about 5.5 gallons at 1.093 and a solid 3.5-4 gallons at 1.062 (this included about a gallon from the first boil which wouldn't fit in the 6.5ga carboy). I figured the second batch would be a lot weaker, but no... It's noticeably thinner than the first one, but I wouldn't call it thin.

I wasn't really planning on the second batch, so I ended up re-using some of the hops and pitching some dry, champagne yeast. The first batch, which got a proper starter, is bubbling away like mad, but the second is a lot slower.

For the sake of efficiency, this is definitely a good way to brew. You only add a couple of hours to your day and end up with two batches. I think I'm gonna try this with a double IPA and an ordinary bitter sometime in the near future.

Wow, your recipe looks really good, much better and more in depth than mine. I hope you don't mind if I try your recipe this year for my winter RIS. I was planning on brewing this next weekend so it would be ready for Christmas.

Thanks for posting it.

this recipe looks great, i think i may get the ingredients and do this as my 2nd batch for the brewday.. has anybody else had any success or attempted using the 2nd runnings for a mini batch? just curious at the results as it seems like a nice experiment

My "Second Runnings Porter" turned out great, despite the dry, champagne yeast I used.

It came out around 5.5% IIRC. I've been drinking it although I know it could use another month or two of maturation.

sounds good.. i think i'll use this as an excuse to purchase another carboy (as i'll already have my 2 being used) and then maybe experiment a bit with the hops in the runoff brew.. great idea!

what kind of starter did you guys use for this big of a beer? i have a 1000ml flask, will that work with some LME and the yeast?
