Just brewed today, finally had the time to do it. I wasn't able to find the specific amber malt needed so I mixed victory and C40 (I know I know I should have just ordered it online) anyway the color looked great and smelled amazing. Mashed at ~152 for 60 min, sparged at 170. Got a preboil of about 6.5 in the end had little over 5 in the fermentor. Starting gravity of 1.082 not sure what the efficiency calculation is but I'm happy with it. Was also unable to find amarillo hops (had no problem finding simcoe or warrior though odly) so I subbed with centennial figured it was a good substitute, would love to hear others opinions since I've never used amarillo before. Oh and Simcoe might be the best smelling hops I've ever opened, can't wait to dry hop with them.

I pitched two packs of S-04 around 8pm tonight and it's just after 1am and I'm getting bubbles. I'm also trying the fermentor in a bucket with water and an ice pack trick. Seems to be pretty good, it's hanging around 70 right now, I'll throw a fresh one in in the morning.

Try to keep that fermenter a little cooler if you can. 65 or so would be much better than 70.

Yea I decided to toss a fresh water bottle in last night before I went to bed, it's sitting around 65. Bubbling nicely.

Man S-04 is a beast after 24hrs it was exploding! A blow off tube is definitely needed for this recipe. Look at my airlock!

Also quick question, I usually only do 7-10 days in the primary depending on the gravity. This recipe calls for 2 weeks in the primary, is that really necessary? Or can I get away with just one week if the gravity's good?

Two weeks or more is generally a good idea with a 1.085, 9% ABV beer

Scottland, I finished this batch long ago but you were right about the FG. I'll be making this again soon and I hope it finishes at 1.012 again. It was awesome.

Ya, I'm brewing a batch for a friend next weekend. I'll be brewing it with 1.25lbs Amber malt. I'll report back how it turns out.

Two weeks is optimal, as a big beer like this can use a little time, plus I find I get really nice hop aroma if I split the hop additions 5-7 days apart. Temp isn't critical at this phase. 50-80* (seriously)
