How cold are you talking? I'm worried about this carbing in time for Thanksgiving. I have it at 68-70 degrees. I havn't had any carbing problems before, but this is my first high gravity beer.

My house was 60 during the carb period... my house is 55 now... I think I need to suck up and turn the heat on or rig something up

Just bottled on Tuesday of this week - came in with a FG of 1.010 with a very prominent banana taste/aroma. Can't wait to see how this sucker plays out.

I could wait no longer and cracked open my first bottle today. What a great brew. Medium-light carbonation, minimal head, burnt orange color. Bananas, spice, and strong yeast yeast note in the nose. The taste confirms the yeast and banana aroma a good hint of alcohol warmth in the finish; pretty well balanced over all. I think another month will do this beer wonders (if I can wait that long). Its not as dry as I would have expected.

Definitely looking to brew this again. Probably partial mash. I may shoot for over 9% ABV on the next and look to add a little head retention.

Great recipe, Thanks!

Looks like this was your inspiration By Chrie Frey. Most of us try to give credit to the authors for the all grain recipes. Congrats for your extract version. The all grain version is excellent, especially with WL1214. Cheers...

Great recipe, Thanks!
I'm experiencing the same feelings regarding my green batch right now. I'm itching to just taste what it has the potential to become. After only a week and a half since bottling, I'll let everyone know. I have no qualms yielding to my noobism desires.

Excuse me for my ignorance, but is there any schedule to adding the extract, or is it just all at once

Once you have your water to a boil remove from heat and add all the extract and mix thoroughly to prevent any scorching on the bottom of the pot. Once all the extract dissolves return it to the the heat and bring to a boil for about 5 min before starting your hops schedule. Good Luck!

Or....

you can add a 1/3rd of your extract at the point IowAve states and then the remaining extract toward the end of the boil. Supposedly it removes some of the "extract twang" taste All Grain brewers complain about. I've done it that way right up until I went AG.
