I'm assuming I could use the same hop additions just scaled down for 5 gallons.
So, GuitarBob, did you make this and how did it turn out?

I've never mashed with that low of a temp before. Does anyone have some of this that has aged well and how is it after around 8 months?
Nevermind...I see where the recipe came from.

I ended up scaling the recipe down to two gallons, and doing an all-grain version. I bottled it 3 months ago, and I don't plan on trying it for awhile. A beer this big needs to age awhile, maybe I'll try one this fall.

I know this is an old thread, but I'm wondering if anyone had a follow-up from a tasting after an extended age?

Also, I just punched this recipe into Beersmith and I only hit 1.096 for an OG. Did I miss something?

I just tried this after 4 months of aging, and it's amazing. I can't believe how good it came out. I've never tried the original before so I can't say how close it is, but damn it's good.

The only bad thing is I only made 2 gallons of it.

That is only .004 points difference, it could be efficiency settings, boil time, or the potential extract calculated in the program for the given grains.
