Nice. We'll have to hook up next year for sure. I'm about to bottle an Imperial Stout I did next week and I'm hoping by April it will be very tasty.We shall see.

Sounds good, we should make sure to get a HBT group together, last year I was there but by myself (was still fun, but coulda been more fun with people I knew before the event)

My beer was pretty good, VERY drinkable for 14.5%ish, but I don't think it was very close to a Dark Lord clone. I've been thinking about how I want to revamp this recipe and haven't really gotten very far. When I crack open a DL09 and one of my bombers for comparison I'll probably write down some notes.

Can't wait to hear how it goes, I have a 12.6% imperial Porter aging for next year but this looks good too

Mine was pretty harsh when I last tried it. I need to take another sample, it has been on vanilla beans for a couple months now. I'll get back to ya'll.

Well, I just got back from DLD '10 last night, and I'm now ready to give your clone recipe a shot. I converted it into a partial mash recipe, hopefully I'll show up at DLD next year with a few bottles to pass around.

The recipe is still a work in progress. This next round I'm lowering the bittering hop additions and trying to figure out better yeast management. I got a little more alcohol taste/nose in this one than I wanted, so I really need a huge amount of yeast to work on this, with good temp control.

New recipe, hope to brew soon. Not sure if I'll make a couple huge starters, or brew a beer specifically for the yeast cake.

1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L

1.50 oz Magnum [14.50 %] (120 min)
0.28 tsp Irish Moss (Boil 10.0 min)
1.00 tsp Yeast Nutrient (Boil 10 min)

3.00 items Vanilla Beans (Secondary 2.0 weeks)

3.00 lb Light Extract during fermentation

1 Pkgs London Ale (Wyeast #1028) (Cultured up to a higher cell count)



Mash Schedule: Single Infusion, Medium Body, Batch Sparge
Total Grain Weight: 22.75 lb
----------------------------
Single Infusion, Medium Body, Batch Sparge
Step Time Name Description Step Temp
60 min Mash In Add 28.44 qt of water at 166.5 F 151.0 F


Notes:
------
I went to Dark Lord Day last year and had the vanilla bourbon barrel aged DL and fell in love with it, this is my third recipe trying to dial it in.

Also included is 4 oz of freshly ground of ground Kona coffee at flameout and anothe 4oz of ground kona in the primary after fermentaiton. Also add 3 vanilla beans split and scraped in secondary along with the oak cubes soaked in bourbon.

mashed at 151 for 60 min.

After primary ferementation has died down, add in Honey, Molassas, and however much extract needed to hit the gravity needed (calculated after getting the OG before fermentation)

Oak cubes would be better than the chips as they won't get as astringent over time.

3/4 lb = .5 pint
1 lb molasses = .67 pint = 320 ml

1.5 lb honey = 470ml

So adding about 3/4 of a liter of volume. Plus the DME as needed

oak : Sanitizing by placing on a cookie sheet and place in a preheated 300 degree oven for 30 minutes.
