    heh, just brew 11 gal of this last night, i did some modification to the original recipe last
    year and i wasnt crazy about results so this time is back to original recipe, making inverted
    sugar tomorr...

    you would have to describe your process but from what i deduct from your post you got all grain
    kit and used it without mashing/lautering? that would explain the sediments

    As davefleck said they are very strong, i think i put 1/3 or 1/4 of the spiral in to 5gal batch
    and i liked the subtle flavor after months of aging in RIS, i did the same for belgian dubbel
    and it was...

    I wouldn't, im big fan of 3711 strain but i find high gravity beers fermented with it lacking
    complexity and being alcohol forward

    I dont see how can you introduce more O2 by stirring wort/beer in close (airlock) carboy. There
    is O2 at the beginning of fermentation (dissolved in wort and in the headspace) but rather
    quickly this ...

    I hope a couple of quick comments on this is ok for review since high gravity stall has been a
    recurring topic:I think your pitch estimate of 575 billion was workable for a gravity of 1.090
    and a volu...

    151F mash is fine on this and would not have created the gravity stall. The following docs may
    help on the next attempt: before bottling at 1.019 there is one last technique to correct
    this.I read 2...

    I made traditional version, it was single infusion mash that stabilized at 151F and i used 4lb
    total of sugars for 11gal batch (in primary at 48h of fermentation), OG was 1.095 but after two
    weeks of ...

    i did 2 split batches with 3711 and 3724, dont have my notes in front of me but from memory
    3711 is maintenance free and delivers great results in short time, extremely dry and refreshing
    with great b...
