Thanks for the replies.

Yeah, after cellaring for 6 months (45), a new yeast charge would be a better guarantee of carbonation in the bottle. The last thing I'd want after that time commitment...

As an update, it tasted too sweet in Oct, so I let the secondary warm up to room temp over 5 days and pitched 2 packets of rehydrated US-05 with some yeast nutrient. After a week it has signs of...

I made this with 2 rehydrated packages of Nottingham mashed at 149 and pitched at 79 fermented at 72-74 (I know, it's high, but I wasn't worried). OG was 1.044. After a week, it only got to...

Yeah, I found I had an amazing transformation from week 3 to week 4 with this recipe. The roastiness softened to a beautiful malty chocolate.

That was my results/perception anyway.

Ok, so I have a barleywine OG 1.115 that seems to have petered out after being pitched directly on a cake of WLP007 at 1.033 after 3 weeks. Apparent attenuation of 71%

A little higher FG than I...

Well, I for one am not a fan of Wild Rice in a beer.

I agree with skibb. The flavor to me is not so much nutty as it is earthy like sucking on tree bark or something? Not offensive, but not...

A furious fermentation (even without kraussen or blowing off can raise the temperature of the fermenting beer by 6 degrees or more on a bigger beer. I'm guessing the 65 pitch temp was of the wort,...

Barleywine SMaSH AG

I've done a lot on MO recipies in the past and I feel like I have a good handle on that flavor (that I love). I thought I'd see what Munich does in a large beer. I also want to see about Phoenix...

Thanks for the reply!

I ended up using 1 lb. We'll see what they think of the flavor.

The Whole Foods near me sells wild harvested (not paddy) Canadian lake wild rice for $12/lb which is a...

Wild Rice and Wild Hops APA

It is amazing how this little beer changes over time. I can understand why cellarmanship is such a skill on these lower gravity Real Ales. Mine (OG 1.042/24IBU) peaked in flavor after 4 weeks in...

I just tried this one. Can't wait to see how it turns out. Ended up at 1.042 OG and 24 IBUs. Hope I taste the Notty at that gravity. I'll definitely try again to try and hit the lower gravity.

It's going to be hard to dough in the mash with the HLT directly over it. I would put the HLT under the BK and use quick disconects to move your hoses around.

But as bucfanmike said, the pump will...

There is almost no advantage to brewing extract on a commercial scale.

I'd cap it with an airlock and wait a bit. If it's bubbling, wild yeast is already going and I'd just let it go.
