carbonate to 3.0 volumes or so to balance the dryness.
Thanks Azscoob - I did use the yeast from your recipe. It's been since last Sunday so definitely need to give it some time. Took gravity today and down to 1.01 and counting. Hydro sample tastes real good! You definitely have a great recipe here!

Thanks! Just wait till it drops to single digits...

Bottle or keg to three volumes,

Nice and dry, crisp carbonation, hints of pepper and citrus...

Making my mouth water!

Been waiting to kick a keg so I could replace it with a keg of this. Last night was the night...

Wow is all I can say. For it only being the keg for a little over a week and at temp for only a few hrs it is awesome. I did a small tweak in that I added a 1/2lb of light belgian candy to my boil. The A.A. on my hops were a bit higher than your specifications so I wanted to make sure it all stayed in somewhat of a balance. The pepper/yeast back, even though very light in tasting, covers almost all of the raw alcohol taste at the moment. Mine rang in at 9.9%!

I have to say kudos for the recipe. This will probably earn a permanent spot in my rotation and I have only brewed duplicates of 2 beers in my 6yrs of home brewing! My hat is off to you good sir!

I cant wait to get home tonight to pour another glass.

Does anyone have guidance on amount of dextrose to add to achieve 3 volumes if bottling?

Here is a good calculator to use to determine how much priming sugar to use.

http://www.tastybrew.com/calculators/priming.html

It appears you would need about 5.7 oz for a 5 gallon batch

I like that light pepper taste, not too bold but balanced nicely overall against everything else

Just bottled tonight - can't wait to taste a fully carb'd version. Drank a whole glass of this while bottling!

Hi guys

This brew turned out excellently! My 2nd AG. Photo Attached!

It finished at 1.002 and clocked in around 7.7%. Used almost a full cup of white sugar into just under 5gallons, got a great carbonation although the wife says its a little too fizzy for her. No Bottle bombs!

I was worried about the taste at bottling time but even after just 1 week in the bottle the taste was great! I have learned to never judge a beer until its been in the bottle a week or more!

I love the little bit of pepper that comes up slowly, next time I might town down the honey just a tiny bit. I will be repeating! thanks!

Brewed this on Saturday.. 10 gallon batch... Pitched the 3711 from a starter and this thing was chugging away within hours.
Used a blowoff tube and I am glad that I did.
Tube was full of krausen on Sunday and it must have gotten clogged yesterday because when I cam home from work, the bung had blown its' top.
Cleaned, sanitized and put the airlock back on and within seconds, bubbles were chugging away again...
Wow.. first time using this yeast and it IS A BEAST!!!!
