Thanks
Quads are usually around 11 to 12%, so use this tool to calculate what you will get. Remember that yeast will have a very high attenuation. http://www.brewersfriend.com/extract-ogfg/

And a boil time of 60 minutes, no reason to boil any longer. Note, if your going with a quad, then i would counter balance it with higher IBU's... So maybe a 90 minute boil? and/or more hops... use brewerfriend.com to figure out the IBU's also. It's all personal preference, so experiment... I would guess a 35 to 40 IBU would be nice for a Belgian quad.

I brewed this on Sept 28 and it's bubbling away at 72 degrees. Let's say fermentation is done and I transfer to a secondary at 14 days. Main reason for the secondary is to split the batch. 3 gallons regular and 2.5 gallons on oak chips. I've done a lot of reading on the quantity of oak as well as the time in the secondary with oak but I'm all ears if you have brewed an oak beer before. My question is: Will the beer be ready to bottle at 4 weeks since I will be leaving town for 6 weeks and would like it to be ready when I get back mid December?
I can bottle Oct 28 or 29 and let the beer condition and carb for 6 weeks or should I give it the extra 6 weeks in a carboy?

You could get some ideas from the Allagash Curieux clone thread, http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/alla...-clone-250654/. I currently have that one in a primary and will be adding the oak cubes and racking to secondary this weekend.

2 weeks of oak chips for 2.5 gal might end up giving it a very strong oak character. Oak chips seem to give more oakiness due to the higher contact area than cubes. If you go with oak chips you may want to think about only keeping it on the oak for 4 -7 days, try a sample every couple days, when it's got the oak that you're looking for rack and bottle.

I sparged today with 190-200F water. I really don't think it matters. You'll find that sparge temperature is by no means a crucial part of brewing up a recipe. As long as it's enough to achieve a mash-out temperature and wash away the majority of the residual sugars you want in order to achieve your desired efficiency, it'll be fine.

Minor correction - high sparge temp causes tannins to leach from the grain husks which is of particular interest when making Lambics - it gives the bugs more to feed on.

Sooo doing the AG in BIAB. My first try at BIAB... hope i did goood :P
Another thing.. it too late now.. but i did not get styrian goldings.. MY Brew shop didnt have them. so got some East kent goldings... Will this alter the taste allot?


Uuuhm what the hell went wrong xD got a OG at 1.090 :P guessing this will be a blackout beer....

i used what was in the AG description. tho i used liquid belgian brown candy instead.

uhm.. so it took 26h before fermentation started... Which is a good thing in a way... but its not a vigorous fermentation. kinda like brown ale.. is this normal? smells like banana tho :P

Was not able to sparge... Not enough room under the exh fan and did not have a strainer that could hold all the grains.

Im kinda freaked out now that i messed this up. My home brew store did not have styrgian goldings.. so i used EKG instead, and they did not have belgian pilsner but gave me pilsner malt heidelberg and munich malt.... will this alter the taste allot? when i took an FG reading yesterday its pretty done fermenting.. but did taste like beer thats been out for a day or two...
