I've used about 8 oz of toffee in a brown ale. Didn't seem to effect head retention. But I couldn't taste the difference in the beer either. If I had it to do over I'd likely just use brown sugar.

It's actually sort of the same thing, assuming it's at FG when you secondary.

I would say secondary for a few weeks, then bottle. That will let you get a good idea where it's at when it goes in...

Well, fair enough. If chestnuts are grain then it's certainly beer. But the recipe is for a high alcohol beer. Nothing wrong with that at all. It will just benefit from a longer aging. Let us know...

I'm not sure what that is. I don't think it's beer.

Not trying to be a jerk. It could absolutely brew a delicious alcoholic beverage. I've just never seen anything like that.

You now have an "Imperial" brown ale. Big beers like that need to age longer. Give it 3-4 months at least. Should be delicious.

So...... To get an OG of 1.110 you need to add way more ingredients...

From sample.

1) I can pull a sample through the airlock hole, so no need to remove the lid, which is a pain.
2) Even for OG and FG, I want the lid off and things in my beer for as short a period...

3-4 weeks before it's ready is a good rule of thumb.

But it's beer already. And it's your beer. And you'll learn by experimenting. Don't be afraid to chill and open some early to see how the...

It's easier in a lot of ways. Since it's not carbonated you can even go without formal bottling or kegging. Just rack the finished cider into glass jugs.

It should taste like flat, warm beer that's been sitting around in a bucket for a week. Because it is. In other words, don't expect to be impressed. But tasting for off flavors is a good idea....

I've never used one of those, and always wondered how they could possibly work. You need beer line. Having the tap directly on the keg seems like a device specifically designed to produce foam.

No. If you've done something like cold crash to settle out yeast, obviously shaking up the yeast cake will mix some back in. But even then, it's not something that will effect taste meaningfully.
