I've always mashed the carafa the full 60. I may try a shorter mash with my dark grains some time. I listened to an interview with Gordon Strong about holiday beers on Basic Brewing Radio last week. He said that with all his beers, he mashes only his base malts for the full hour. His does a mash out step at the end of his sacc rest where he recirculates the wort to pull the qualities they impart. He said it makes for smoother flavor

Yeah this beer will blowoff big time.

Also I have always mashed all of the grain for the full 60 min.

I'm going to brew a version of this beer, that I converted to PM, this Sunday. I noticed that you use a 1.5L starter for this beer, is that with a stir plate? This is the first time that I've needed to make a starter and I don't have a stir plate. I bought a 2L flask and a smack pack of 1056 with the intention of making a 1.5L starter but Brewsmith says that I will need two smack packs to get enough yeast. Do I need to pick up another smack pack before brewing or do you think it will be fine?

I've never brewed a beer this big so some input is greatly appreciated.

I make starters for most of my beers without a stir plate. I just give it a good swirl when ever I walk by it in the kitchen. It's not as efficient as a stir plate but I always get really fast starts to fermentation. I think you will be ok with one smack pack unless the lhbs is close by and you can get another one I wouldn't worry about it.

I use a stirplate for mine, but JLW is right - just swirl it each time you walk by. It will do the job. If you have the time you could always step it up a second time, but a single starter with one smack pack is fine for this beer.

Color might not be the same:

Lovibond as follows:
I 800-1000
II 1100-1200
III 1300-1500

That's kind of what I figured, if color is the only thing really different than I am ok with that. It'll probably just be for me anyway, unless pops catches wind of it haha.

If worst comes to worst, at least I'll have an excuse to rebrew it!
