I made this beer yesterday and unfortunately, mine will be a, "Nine Fidy"

I made 2 mistakes. First, I've only done a handful of BIAB AG batches so far and they've all been about the same OG and I've gotten about 74% efficiency every time. Since this was a bigger beer, I knocked it down to 70%, but I ended up getting 66% mash efficiency. I should have just stuck with the original recipe. So my pre-boil gravity was low.

Then for some reason I did a less vigorous boil than I normally do. Probably because I was busy doing other things and didn't want a boil over. So I boiled off less and ended up with more volume at the end, which lowered the gravity further. I guess I should I have checked before cooling and I could have boiled longer, but I didn't check until it was almost cool.

But if my target FG is reached, it will be nine fidy, so I'm thinking that will be good enough. I plan to let this sit in primary for at least 5 weeks due to an upcoming extended vacation. Then either bottle or secondary.

After 5 days my gravity is down to 1.022. I may have overpitched but I figured that would be better than under pitching for this beer. I'll check again, but I'm assuming it won't go lower. Gravity sample tasted great.

This recipe has been sitting ing primary for about 5 weeks. I'm thinking I could either:

1) let it ride in primary for about 8 weeks total and then bottle or
2) move it to secondary now for a month or so and then bottle.

Which option is best?

Mine has been in the primary for almost 5 months, haha. No time for bottling, or bottles right now for that matter.

Wow, that's impressive. Have you ever done any beer in primary that long? If so, how'd it turn out?

I ended up moving mine to secondary yesterday and I'll probably keep it in there for a month and then bottle.

I've never had anything in the primary that long. The most is a month, a little over a month for big beers. I just brewed up so much this spring everything was being used and my bottles were/ are all filled with delicious beer.

I'll bottle eventually and I'll post back up in here with how it is.

i made this about a month ago and just put it on the gas today. low starting gravity due to my poor efficiency, but it smells good. i started at 1085 and it finished at 1022. i let it primray for 10 days (i soaked two 8" medium toasted oak spirals in makers mark during this time) and then added the soaked oak and a few ounces of the bourbon it steeped in. left it in the primary bucket on the yeast cake. let it sit another two weeks and kegged it today and started force carbing. i realize the bourbon oak wasn't a part of the initial recipe, but i think it's going to be awesome!
thanks for the original recipe!

This beer is incredible. It's been in the bottle a little over a week, and it's really amazing. I brewed this on may 4th I think, national home brew day. It say in my fermenter for over 5 months. I think that might have helped with the complexity of this beer. Perfectly at 10.5%, this beer is thick, chewy and is so easy to drink. It has a slight ten fidy flavor, but not just like it. I'll get some real ten fidy to compare. But both are that thick motor oil, with the carmel head. Taste is roasted coffee, bitter dark chocolate, and carmel with a slight alcohol burn.
My buddy really likes it, and his wife really liked it. I've had too many in this past well already, haha, I need to save a few. This will be brewed again, definitely.
Great recipe.

Thanks for the update. I just bottled mine this passed Sunday after 5 weeks in primary and almost 5 weeks in secondary. I will wait a few weeks before trying one.
