Marubozo,

First of all, thanks for a great recipe! I can't wait to brew it myself--but I wanted to see what you thought of using 004 instead of 002 on it?

Thanks for any advice.

I can't give much report on my success or failure w/ 007. I had a process failure (whereby I include my brain in the term 'process'). I unbeknownst shot my mash temp up to 160 for about 20 mins into the mash. Left the probe out... too sweet.

Maybe I'll leave it in a warmer area to age faster. Maybe I'll infect it. Does anyone know if you wreck the fermentability of the wort if it will ferment more with more voracious sugar devourers (like maybe brett, bacteria, or something...?). OK so this is way off topic, sorry.

On another off topic side note, I didn't love either batch I brewed with 007. What a fluffy MF... For the first time I couldn't sample from my racking dip tube because at it's depth, it was all fluffy cake. Only after crashing could I even sample or rack at all.

004 should yield good results. Both strains have similar characteristics so I don't think there would be any drastic differences.

Default Want to try this, need a little help


I'm getting ready to pull the trigger and brew this. I have never attempted anything this big. I was wondering how much water do you mash with to get the 5-6 gallons of wort to go into the boil kettle?

Thanks

Had a sample from my secondary, it was intense and warming, my feeling is this is going to be excellent this winter.

Thanks again for sharing this recipe

I was shooting for about 1.5 quarts per pound of grain, so I think I was a little over 7.5 gallons. But this completely maxed out my cooler. The lid wouldn't even close tight because the mash water was just slightly above the lip. If you've got a 10 gallon cooler you can certainly do it, but it will be a very tight fit and/or you may have to go with a slightly thicker mash.

I used 1.3 quarts per pound in my mash achieving 77% efficiency. That being said I used a long boil and ended up about a half gallon short of my target, I bet if I had used a higher water to grain ratio and maybe even more sparge water I would have ended up with a higher overall extraction.

Just bottled this after 2-1/2 months in primary. Sample was excellent - a slight bit of alcohol bite, which should diminish in the bottle, and a really nice roasty-chocolaty- darkness to it. Very pleasant to drink the sample and am looking forward to cracking a bottle in a few months - should make a nice Easter beer. Thanks for the recipe!

I primary all my beers for at least a month. Bigger beers for usually 2 months. This one got an extra two weeks because I was lazy. Makes for some good, clear beer. Never do secondary anymore with the exception of when I dry hop, just primary
