Guld, did you end up trying this? If so, I'd love to hear about your results (especially if it's to the tune of "huge mess--don't try"). Thanks!

I don't see why it wouldn't. Anytime I make gumbo I make it in the oven over a two hour period so I don't risk burning it. Same concept.

So I bottled my bochet today...it cleared really well right in primary (just under 3 months from date of brew), so I went straight from there. It's a nice dark reddish brown, still smells awesome, and tastes just as good! I really can't wait to see how this one ages out...

I've been to the point of almost drooling while reading this thread. I am fairly certain that means I should make some!

You should make some.

I'm drinking batch two and its reputation grows. I've been at larger brew events and had strangers come ask me about it.

Batch three is in the fermenter (10 gallons)

I just made an one gallon batch since all of my carboys are tied up but it doesn't seem to be fermenting. I rehydrated some EC-1118 and pitched it with some nutrient and energizer and I've got nothing. Anyone had any problems with it not fermenting?

Have you measured the gravity?

I got an OG of 1.094. I think it may have killed my yeast.

What was your procedure to hydrate and pitch the yeast?

Why would it kill your yeast?
