This recipe looks awesome. Thanks for posting.

I have been "Brewing" for a few months with a Mr. Beer kit I got a while back, while slowly accumulating the equipment to make a 5 gal batch, and reading everything I can get my hands on about beer.

I am chomping at the bit to start a batch, but have been deliberating over what to make. This looks like its a great next step for me, as its still extract, so not too complicated, but will allow me to expand my skills.

Did you steep any specialty grains prior to you boil? (Sorry if I missed this in your post)

I am headed to my LHBS tonight, and will be making this Saturday. Can't wait!

Mark me down for 5 gallons brewed this weekend. Went with the wyeast instead of the white labs, hoping for a slightly higher pitching rate, but of course I screwed up and didn't smack one of my two packs. Either way it's chugging along great now, gonna be tough waiting for this one to be ready

Brewed this over the weekend... 5 gal.
Grains:
10 lbs. Belgian pilsner
2.5 lbs 2-row
2.5 lbs candi sugar

Completely missed the protein rest. Hit 148 degF. Added some more boiling water to hit 150 degF and mashed for 60mins.

Boil:
2 oz. Hallertau (60 mins.)
0.5 oz Glacier (30 mins.) --> LBHS out of S. Golding
1 oz. Saaz (3 mins.)
0.5 oz Glacier (0 mins.)

Finished with OG of 1.082 (Target was 1.084)

Used Wyeast 3787 (ofcourse, made a starter)

Fermentation took-off with in few hrs... Got violent after 16 hrs.
Replaced air lock with blow-off tube.

After 24. hrs I see some hop, yeast mix being blown off the tube...
Got some yeast +hop slurry on the basement carpet (renting a rug doctor before wife imposes ban on brewing)

Hope there is enough yeast still in there to take the FG down.

Anyone care to share a picture of the final product.... please

At 1.082 your yeasties should be fine. When did you do the syrup addition?

Just wondering. On big beers like that I like to wait and add the syrup 48-72 hours after pitching. Usually gives the yeast a head start so their not overwhelmed.

Hey guys.

I brewed this on Thursday the 4th and used two vials of WLP500 with no starter (all ingredients came from AHS so should be fresh). Aerated the wort well before pitching (pitch temp was 65). Still no active fermentation as of today, 36 hours later. Any tips on getting this bad boy started?

Edit 7/8/13-
Yesterday I went and shook the hell out of the fermenter to try and agitate it more to wake the yeast. Seemed to work. As of this morning it's finally going! Took it a while. If I had to guess, I would think maybe I need to make a starter to get the yeast going before pitching on such a big OG beer. I thought just using two vials of yeast would be okay, but in my case it took a lot to get them going.

I thought about it but I was not sure how I was going to break the crystallized sugar and get all of it into the primary. I am also paranoid about infection while doing so...

Its been 10 day and still seeing about 80 bubble/min

Great recipe!

I just received 5th place in the category at the San Diego County Fair. The bottle is at about 10-11 months old right now..

I think the one thing holding it back was that my starter could have been a bit more substantial - got more warm alcohol than I was expecting. Fermentation temps were kept steady toward the middle of the yeast's range (recipe notes say 69F).

I just brewed this recipe last night with a starter. It is bubbling like crazy going to add the candie in about 24 hours in or so to try out this technique. Never used candie before but it is already smelling and looking good.

thanks again hurricane for posting this. I have read every post on this recipe and have been wanting to try it for a few months now. Will be updating as it progresses
