Any idea how correct the grain bill is here? I'm wondering if three floyds might take a look at it and give you some direction if you email it to them? Considering they only release this once a year and they already have a veritable festival surrounding it, it wouldn't lose them any customers to just give you some pointers on cloning for the homebrew scene.

Just a thought.

I tried to contact them back when I was formulating the recipe, I didn't get a response. I may try again sometime.

Same here, I just asked for any information and I never got a response. I don't think they are going to spill the beans on this jewel. It'd be nice though!

Maybe if we managed to get someone with a bit more name recognition they might do it? Perhaps suggest this to Jamil for one of their Can You Brew It? segments. I'm very tempted to try this out in a small batch since it's so pricey. Need to find a 1 or 2 gallon container suitable to age this in.

Thanks for the info and the updates.

So how did this turn out? Or is it still too early to tell.

I don't know about anyone else, but mine is awesome. Not as much body as Dark Lord, but definitely a great high gravity (12.75%) Stout.

Mine is getting better but it still needs a lot more age, great body but I think I just had too many dark malts, still fairly harsh, but I've put it in secondary with a couple vanilla beans and will leave it for another 6 months or so.

That's the thought. I'm thinking of bottle conditioning this one, I'll add some yeast when I bottle, I don't want to worry about any oxidation issues from filling from a keg. I'm planning on doing the same for my pumpkin ale (for next october, OG of 1.070)
