Getting ready to finish this one up shortly. OG was 1.076 and FG is 1.010. On the fence between kegging and bottling. Will sleep on it and decide tomorrow.

I racked to secondary a few days ago, my gravity sample read about 1.024, did you notice this too. It's been in primary for 3-4 weeks.
I have never done a beer this big, I know they take longer though.

Mine actually came in pretty close to my FG out of primary (two weeks). Did you use a yeast starter? I've noticed significantly better results since I started making starters, especially for the big beers. Hope it comes into shape soon!

I didn't have time to use a starter, but I did pitch two packs.
Eh, I'll check it in a few days, if it's still the same, bottle it. If not I'll let her ride.
Thanks!

Starters are my New Years plans, I've been meaning to get into them. No reason not to!

keg it, let it carb up, bottle a few 6ers off the full keg and leave the rest.

Default Reaching OG


I am thinking about making a ruination clone for my next batch and have been looking up recipes. All of the extract recipes I have found seem to be light on the extract(dry or liquid) I have plugged a bunch (including BYO, and several from this post)of them into Beercalculus and can never get the OG to be calculated up past 1.070, while the recipes call out anywhere from 1.072-1.077. Am I missing something? Beer calculus is set up for a 5 gal batch with a 5.6gal boil volume.

First, I would look to adjust the batch volume up. A five gallon batch is going to leave with little, if any, over 4 after fermenting and dry hopping. I usually shoot for 5.5 into the fermenter and maybe even more when dry hopping. Also, in my experience, I lie a lot more than .6 gals during boil, in combination of evaporation and trub loss. This beer has a lot of hops added which will absorb a good amount if fluid, the majority of which should probably be left out if the fermenter.

Mine came down to 1.010 finally, and the hydro sample tasted really good too! I put it in the fridge and will try some more tomorrow.
Excited about this one, it might be better than the real thing!

This weekend I did a Columbus/Centennial version of this. Pacman yeast chewing through it at 59F!
