+1 on that.

Just did this recipe with an OG of 1.090 (used molasses instead of brown sugar) and it is black as sin

Put a 1 liter starter of mixed cooked DME, water and WLP004. 5 days in with just a nice even layer of krausen... No blow off tube necessary. No bad smells, and no fusels from lag time. Use a starter, watch your temps. When yeast are pissed, bad **** happens to your beer.

Nice aromas in the steeping grains BTW! This is gonna be a good one, thanks for the recipe.

I threw two table spoons of coffee when steeping the grains and used wyeast 1084(equivalent) but did the rest according to recipe. I had an og of 1.074. It's been less then 24 hours and I already have it coming out the blowoff tube. I'm going to keg this but may transfer after two weeks into another fermentor for an additional week or two. I'm not sure yet but ill check back and post.

So I'm on day 15 of fermentation and I still have activity in the airlock. Has anyone else had bubbling for this long? I did have a blowoff tube in there the first 10 days and had a small amount of blowoff then put the airlock in and it's been bubbling since.

I kegged last night. I had it for a total of 29 days in the fermentor and finished with a fg of 1.024. 6.45%abv. Disappointed. I was hoping it would of ended up higher. But it does taste amazing. I deff will be making again. Thanks for sharing.

I had the same thing going on and was told that my yeast was slow and possibly going dorment..and he was right my fermantation temp was to low . So I wrapped a heat blanket around it than finally after a couple of days it Finished..I'm not possitive but, I've heard you don't want your beer in your primary too long.
