Finally got around to brewing NCBeernut's recipe yesterday (extract) and it really smelled and looked great. Some buddies stopped by and every one of them noticed the coffee aroma immediately. I used Denny's Fav for the yeast and as of this morning it was going to town. Thanks again for the recipe and I'll check back in a while to let you know how it comes out...

Pic is from a blackberry...sorry about the quality...

Actually, it's a pretty nice pic for a camera phone. Looks good!

Is there an official PM version of this recipe? One that's been tried and approved?

I notice on the first or second page someone mentioned using Otter... wondering what the results were.

Or is it not worth it, just do the extract version?

I have lots of experience with PMs. If you tell me your efficiency and how much you can mash I will make you a recipe.

Well, I've only officially done 3 PM recipes. The first two i didn't realize I was doing a poor fly sparge (with a very small grain bill).

The last I actually batch sparged, but came in at about 60% eff. I believe the fault lies in improper temperature control. I didn't dough-in high enough, but I guess I don't know that this would result in a lower eff?

Anyway, I guess the last time I brewed eff was about 60%. But I hope to increase that next time. Does that help?

That's cool, but how much grain can you mash?

Also, unless you drastically missed your mash temp, that probably wasn't an issue. Amylases still work well in the 140s, though a bit more slowly.

Mash amount would be useful yeah? 6#, it's a small orange drink cooler.

Would trying to boil too much and getting lower boil off amounts effect eff?

It won't effect your efficiency, but it could make your efficiency LOOK lower than it actually is if:
- You are only taking a gravity reading post-boil to check your eff
- You are ending up with more wort than you expect
- You don't take the larger volume into account when calculating eff

Here is your grain bill for 60% eff:

2 lb Light/Extra Light DME
1.5 lb Wheat DME
3.5 lb Pale Malt (MO, Am 2-row, etc)
1 lb Crystal 60
0.75 lb Chocolate Malt
0.5 lb Roasted Barley
0.5 lb Lactose

Jebus!!!

I've had this at on CO2 for almost two weeks now, and this thing will NOT carb up! (The keg's holding pressure fine)

Was on 12 PSI at 35 degrees for a week, then when that was doing absolutely NOTHING, I jacked it to 30 for a few days. Purged the keg, dropped it back down to 12, and there was the slightest bit of carbonation. Left it for a few more days to equalize, carbonation's still not there. Just jacked it back to 30 about 36 hours ago, HOPEFULLY this will be good to go by the weekend!
