Interested to see how mine ends up...i tasted it after primary when i moved it to a keg to age in my closet, and holy moley, it definitely has a strong kick too it.

Granted when i did this, i didnt realize the recipe was for 6 Gallons and made it with 5 gallons, so its probably a bit more potent than it otherwise would be.

Brewed this yesterday and only hit a OG of 1.073. Should i add anything to primary or secondary to bump that up some? Not sure of how to go about that.

Extract or all grain?

Was your sample hot or cold when you took the gravity?

I found these two links on another post. Since I have started using them I have had great results with carbonation. I usually shoot for the mid range of the levels they suggest.

Sorry been out of town. It was AG and I added the correct points for temp. It has been 11 days in primary and I just checked it at 1.02. Think I should stir it up some or just go to primary. Tasted pretty darn good though.

Brewed this up last night. (extract version). I did add the candy at the beginning of the boil, (didn't see the thread saying to add it in at the last 10min until today ). but hit an OG of 1.084

The wort tasted pretty good.. looking forward to seeing how it progresses

I did the ag version 2 months ago and bottled it least week. I think it might have bene infected...but again, I'm not sure.

There was a white film on top of the wort. It was thin and breakable - I tried to scoop it out, but it would not come as a "skin" - it was crumbling. It was pretty thin. It reminds me of the salty deposit on top of pickled olives or dills. Anybody ever had something similar? I should have taken pictures, but I totally forgot.

I bottled it anyway and will wait just before Christmas to try it out as I was told to leave enough time for it to mature.

I had the same thing, I didnt think much of it I try not to freak out. I bottled on 9/6 and popped one a couple nights ago- they taste great! I was a little surprised actually since mine came in at 11.1 and I figured it would need more time to mellow.
