    I just sampled my first bottle.. but it has only been in the bottle for one week. Well, there
    is zero carbonation and the taste of the alcohol is noticeable. It's super hopped up.. I will
    wait a few m...

    I brewed this recipe and I am getting no carbonation at all. I think all the yeast have died
    because the alcohol content is so high.Also this is some DARK beer for an IPA. I cannot see
    through my glas...

    I've had 1056 attenuate like that before when I underpitched and fermented too warm and it got
    stressed. The resultant beer smelled and tasted like jet fuel. Could easily strip the paint off
    your hous...

    Wow. That's 95% attenuation and that yeast's range is 73-77% according to Wyeast. Extremely
    unusual. Have you tasted to make sure there was no infection? EDIT: Nevermind - I can't read.
    I'm stumped!I ...

    I was going to use my refractometer to measure the current gravity but I read something about
    the alcohol screwing up the readings.

    That does seem like a lot of liquid lost to trub, assuming all the measurements were accurate.
    How long was it in primary?Also, just curious, what yeast did you use?It was in primary for 4.5
    weeks and...

    I went to siphon my first all grain brew, an imperial IPA, to secondary tonight.Now, when I
    first put this beer in a month ago it had a SG of 1.091 as measured by refractometer. Tonight I
    measured and...

    So I am doing my first all grain brew and wound up with too much wort after my 60 minute boil
    so I'm doing another 60 minutes.I realize this will impart more of the hop profile to the beer
    beyond what...

    Just to be safe I decanted a second time, added another 1056 smack pack and then added FOUR
    cups of fresh wort and put it back on my stir plate.I think that should give me enough yeast
    for my big beer...

    Growth rate is in relation with inoculation rate (millions/ml), so if you pitch too much (or
    too little) yeast in certain amount of wort you"ll get suboptimal growth rate. According to C.
    White"s book...
