    sounds good, I bottled it today after priming with 2.7 oz of sugar. I can't wait for 2-4 months
    from now. It already tasted amazing so I don't think it will have to age as long as some I've
    seen on he...

    I bottled my RIS into some Grimbergen bottles (love the print on the bottle, looks all
    biblical) and brewed Beirmuncher's Boulevard Wheat clone. I mixed up the Simcoe and Cascade t
    the 5 min addition,...

    I made this RIS on 3/2/13 and transferred into my secondary. I took a sample and it was at
    1.036. Will this go any further down or will it be okay to bottle?Planned on aging in the
    bottle and bottling...

    I use my LHBS's standard crush and just got 72% out of a really big (1.101 SG) RIS. The same
    recipe people were getting 50-60% on and blaming BIAB, but thats not the case. I've also had
    great luck wit...

    Thanks junga, I think I'll let it sit in primary for 3-4 weeks then bottle. Saved up 2 cases of
    Grimbergen Beer bottles, the 11.2 oz shouldn't be a big deal since I boiled .5gal too much off,
    just wen...

    sorry, that came out wrong, I meant just extra yeast, read in other posts that with bigger
    beers sometimes having extra yeast added before bottling was useful. It will sit in a ground
    floor in a close...

    I have a RIS I just brewed via BIAB method: Hit my mash temp of 152 F and mashed for 90 min,
    dropped to 149 before I started boil. Came out to 72% eff with a OG of 1.074 and a SG of 1.098.

    brewed up the mild ale kit from Northern Brewer while drinking my just ready Urca Dry Dock
    Vanilla Porter which turned out awesome. All Grain and son of a fermentation chiller changed my
