So I get up this morning and check on my ale pail and what a mess haha. This is the first time I've had a beer blow out of my fermenter bucket. I put a quick blow off tube on it for right now but holey moley going to run into town to get some tubing to throw on my airlock.

brewed this up a couple weeks ago. Used wlp irish ale yeast. It tasted awesome at brew, can't wait to bottle it and taste how its comin along. I also made a small beer off this mash. Figured why not. The small started out at 5 gallons at 1.020 and is at 1.006 now, 2% session beer anyone. I'm gona bottle it (the small, i'm calling it "Little White Lie") tomarrow. It tasted pretty good when checking SG, a little like a lighter brown. I used Windsor yeast, the rest of the magnum .25 oz. and .75oz fuggle(its's what i had in the freezer) and cut out the lactose. I'll let ya know how turns out. The Deception still has a couple weeks in the primary.

I made this today - the all grain version, and my second all-grain batch, with 1056 (all my home-brew shop had). Went pretty smooth. My OG was 1.064, which is a bit high, and I got just over 5 gallons of wort in the fermenter.

I wasn't expecting my efficiency to be that good. I wish I had thought to make a small-beer out of the grains like Rdallas. Next time...

My fermenter is 6.5 gallons - hopefully it can handle the fermentation.... I don't have a blow off tube.

Mine finished out at 1.020 with Denny's - just a tad higher than it is supposed to.

Coffee and chocolate hit you up front intermingled with smooth caramel flavors that become noticeable mid-palate. Nice roasty finish rounds it out. Balanced and not cloying at all, but obviously leaning slightly to the sweeter side. Very smooth and creamy. You would think at least a little coffee or chocolate is actually used in this brew, and that is where it gets the name - Deception.

Brew it. Seriously. Do it. You will not be disappointed. It will be one of the best stouts you have had.


Extract:

4.50 lb Amber Dry Extract - 53.76 %
1.5 lb Wheat Dry Extract (60% Wheat) - 16.37 %
0.75 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L - 8.96 %
0.75 lb Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM) - 8.96 %
0.50 lb Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM) - 5.97 %
0.50 lb Lactose 5.97 % (Boil 10 min)

0.75 oz German Magnum [13.40 %] (60 min) - 27.0 IBU

1.00 Whirlfloc Tablet (Boil 10 min)
1.00 tsp Yeast Nutrient (Boil 5 min)

Ferment 1 month @ 67 degrees F
I carbonated 2 volumes, but I suppose you could go higher


Enjoy!
For extract, how long did anyone steep the grains

Just a quick note:

Brewed this 6 days ago. Fermentation was dying down so I took a hydrometer reading and put the sample in the fridge to cool. It's only 1.028, so clearly it needs to sit for a while, but I tasted the chilled sample and it was FANTASTIC!

I have been doing all grain lately but did this one as extract to speed things up, and used Nottingham yeast. I don't see any reason to go all-grain, the extract version is awesome and I can't wait to get this on tap.

One question though, if it's so good now, why are people waiting 30 days after bottling?

Probably to give it time to carb.

We all do with brew.

"I had no prob sitting and staring at that case of beer for 30+ days while it primed... The thought of cracking one early never crossed my mind"... Said no one ever!
