Ok, I'll give it some more time (another 2-3 months). I like my stouts to have a light carbonation, but I guess if worse comes to worse I can just chill these and drink them as is.

I brewed up a pretty hefty RIS last November. OG was 1.124 and FG ended up at 1.034, so I am right around 12% ABV. I used Wyeast 1728 and racked to secondary after one month. I left it in the...

If you feed the guests an average 6 beers at 8% ABV you are going to have a bunch of drunks on your hands- that's the equivalent of 12 Bud Lights. There are a few people who can handle that much,...

I think the problem is over priming. "about 4 ounces" in 4 1/2 gallons is a pretty stiff prime if it is towards the high side of 4 ounces. I prime 4 ounces into 5.5 gallons and get a pretty high...
