Brewed the extract version today. Threw in 2oz cocoa powder and 2 oz ghiradelli 60%. Also did 2 oz coarse ground dark roast at flame out. My OG came in at 1.074. Should I be worried? I want this thing to come in around 7.5%...is it going to get there? Since this is only the 2nd brew I've done I'm not quite sure.

I'd suspect it'll come in around 7%... finish no better than 1.020 if you are lucky.

The extract recipe on this thread came in around 7% too. I suppose that's fine. Airlock started bubbling after about 3 hours, and is going gangbusters now (7am) after only 18 hours. Hope that's a good sign! Anyone else had luck with the extract version?

If you get 75% attenuation (what I got) you should get down to 1.018, which would give you 7.5%

Good luck!

Keep it cool the first 1-4 days while fermentation is at it's highest. It's generating at least 5 degrees additional heat over room temperature!

Cheers!

It's in my basement right now, which is measuring around 66 degrees. So fingers crossed, that will be good for the S-05. I put two packets in. Here's hoping it doesn't blow the lid off while I am at work!

65 degrees sounds good......but if you've got a standard 5.25 gallons of liquid in a standard 6.5 gallon bucket, I hope you're using a blowoff hose, because I'm betting that with two packets of S-05, yeah, your lid is hitting the ceiling. That's why I switched to 7 gal. buckets......

Have you brewed this? The chocolate oils should kill any krausen that decides to creep. I would highly doubt that you would need a blowoff. I used S-04 (two packets) which, in my experience, is far more vigorous than S-05, and had the tiniest krausen I've ever seen. Might have been an inch.

It's a shade under 5 gallons, but yeah, I am certainly worried about that. I saw a post in this thread that someone said they brewed this recipe and had no problems with their airlock. So I am hopeful. If it does blow the lid, am I screwed?

Yes. And, not in mine. Didn't use a blowoff hose, just a standard airlock. And the krausen line was about 1 inch or a bit more from the lid when I opened it after a month. I used 4 oz. of Baker's chocolate, screw the nibs. Beer was phenomenal.
