Did you ever brew this? How did it turn out? I'm curious how Hallertau and Nottingham played together. I'm toying with trying them together in an ale.

Too late to save my big Doppelbock?

Earlier this spring I brewed a big doppelbock (OG 1.102). I started with Norther Brewer's doppelbock extract kit and added some extra DME and some light brown sugar to up the gravity. Right before it...

I have not kegged this before, but I'm sure that would be just fine. However, I would age it on oak in secondary for a few months, then keg within a few weeks of when you want to serve it.

Do you roast and soak all of the pepper the day before brewing, then leave half there until time to add them to secondary, or do your roast/soak again the day before secondary?

Lol, the "bubbles per minute" table would be nice! I do have a hydrometer, I just generally only use it right before pitching and when packaging. Due to a combination of fear of contamination and...

From what you've said, you're at almost 87% apparent attenuation, which is quite high. Unless you added a very large amount of corn sugar or the like to the wort, I would guess that you've got some...

SumnerH, I saw the "Ancho Villa Ancho/pasilla/chocolate/cinnamon RIS)" in your signature and am intrigued. It sounds sort of along the lines of New Belgium's Cocoa Mole, which I love. Some time I'd...

I'm using Wyeast 2206 Bavarian Lager. I've been debating using the yeast cake or collecting and repitching as you described, I'm thinking I'll do the latter.

Delaying lagering, any negative side-affects?

I'm guessing the 10 degree drop didn't do your yeast any favors, and the additional expected drop in temp won't help either. Most likely your yeast are sleeping on the bottom. It sounds like you had...

I'd leave them alone. Besides risking infection, if the yeast are done fermenting the priming sugar, there wouldn't be any additional CO2 produced after re-capping so it might end up relatively flat....
