Could be it wasn't done fermenting when you bottled. In which case, it was over-primed, and continued to produce CO2.

Putting it in the fridge causes the CO2 to go into solution - so it foams out...

I grow Cascades, and use them only at the end of the boil. There are lab tests that will determine the AA%; obviously the major producers do this. You could guesstimate a range for bittering, but...

Well, it's a little vague, so it's hard to suggest much. What are you aiming for?

If it were my recipe, and depending on the AA% of the hops, I'd probably use a half ounce at 60 minutes, a half...

I can't argue with results, but personally I'd be leery of anything involving boiling coffee. Have you ever tasted boiled coffee? Tastes like carp.

I'd brew some really strong coffee, and add it...

I guess I did make that claim. Should not have said 'never'. Better to say, I haven't commonly heard of it in recipes. I did have the Sam Adams IPL recently- not really impressed, but it got me...

Dry Hopping and Aging

Conventional wisdom is that dry-hopped beers are best when young. Aging a beer reduces the effect of the flavors and aromas. So, barleywines, Imperial stouts, and lagers of course, never get...

I used 4 oz. of cacao nibs (1 bag) in my choco porter. The result was just a hint - sort of a "depth of darkness" flavor. Discernable as chocolate once you think about it, and know it's there. I...

Let it sit another couple weeks. What's the rush? If you test in another week and it's still1.017, then go ahead and transfer. But for now, wait.

I wouldn’t call it toasty or roasty – it’s only a half pound (4%). More of a baking-bread warmth, which goes well with the MO, and contrasts nicely with the cool flavors of the hops.

And yeah,...

I'd toss in a ounce - er, I mean 28 g - Start by waiting for the kraeusen to drop, then toss the hops in. No need to stir. Give them a week to settle, then bottle.

Cheers!

And eventually, the bubbling will stop altogether. So, time to RDWHAHB.

The yeast are on their own schedule. They didn't read the instructions. Trust the yeast.

No way you damaged the yeast. You may have damaged the recipe though.

There's more to a recipe than ABV.

Not carbed at all? Not even a little "pfft"?

8.8% ABV is high, but not excessively so. The yeast (what yeast, BTW?) should be able to handle it, if slowly. Give them another 3 weeks (at least!)...

OK, so time for a follow-up: OG 1.054, yeast S-05; FG 1.006. So, a lot of simple sugars came out of that extended mash. But, it will be beer!

Tasted awesome at bottling btw.

Cheers!

This is a matter of personal preference. Since you want more, next time try a pound. If that turns out too strong, dial it back to .75 pounds.
