How well does this age? I am looking to bottle condition a beer and brew yearly for annual vertical tastings. This be a good fit for 5+ years in the bottle?

Brewed this back on the 9th, checked gravity today to see about bottling. I started at 1.096, but right now my SG is 1.021. Is my fermentation likely stuck? Thinking about moving it upstairs where it's a little warmer, giving it a gentle stir and giving it another week or 2.

If my math is correct though, I got 78% attenuation, which seems about right, but I'm way higher than the recipe in the OP and Beersmith predict.

And the thread lives on.....
First of all, thank you for the great recipe and all the usefull info thats followed. Im following the original recipe except, im subbing 2lbs of the Maris Otter with 2-row that will be home smoked with Macadamia Nut Shells and a little Kiawe wood. I will back off the Special B or completly remove it, what do you think? And of course I will use Mac Nut Honey. Any other suggestions with regards to the smoked malt would be appreciated.

Aloha.

Default Excellent Choice.


My first high ABV beer. Brewed this around the first of August. Primary for 2 weeks then secondary for 3 weeks. Being my first kegging experience and a Porter I was a bit worried about over carbing. All went well. Ended up taking it to the Charlotte Oktoberfest.
Everyone gave it wonderful reviews.
Will definitely brew again, very soon. Thanks for sharing.

I just brewed a version of this -- came in a bit low on the gravity with 1.068 with the following recipe. My thought was to go a bit lower on the mash temp due to the all of the unfermentables in the honey, and the fact that I'm using Wyeast 1968 London ESB which is slightly less attenuative than 007.
10# maris otter
1# munich
1# crystal 80
0.5# special B
0.25# black patent
0.25# chocolate
1# flaked wheat
1.5 oz Northern Brewer
1.5 oz Willamette
mash @151 at 1.5 qt/#, boil 90 mins

I used 2nd gen 1968 freshly bottom-cropped from a batch of actual ESB and 8 hours later bubbling like mad. Can't wait to try it a few months from now. If anyone has any ideas about my low conversion at 1.068, I'd love your thoughts!
