I do have a question about the size of the brew - is this a 5 gallon batch or a 3 gallon batch? I was assuming it was 5 gallons, but looking at the recipe again, it appears to be more like 3 gal. I was hoping for 5.

reposting that which I sent by PM to the original brewer:

I checked in with the Tankara T'ej that I brewed on 5/1/10 this evening, over a month later, and it appears to be either stuck, or fermenting as slow as possible. It was off the hydrometer on brew day, so I am guesstimating 1.180-90, and it now reads 1.110. Should I repitch some yeast you think? EC-1118? Thoughts?

An update on this, and some advice, if anyone's game...

About a month ago, I racked it off of the gesho leaves and sticks and the raisins to a secondary. Checked the gravity, and it was still pretty high, so I repitched 2 more packets of EC-1118 yeast.

Checking it today, 9/2/10, gravity is still at 1.100. Should I do something to get it down more? It's gone from an OG of over 1170 (it was off the hydrometer) to 1100 at current. it's very sweet but not at all unpleasant. Advice?

1118 is pretty much the only yeast that will get it down, unless you use some champange yeast. I had the same issue with mine, but my OG wasn't as high as yours.

Same stuff they're combining with a stout to make "Bitches Brew" on Brewmaster's.

Yes it is.....I posted some info on where to find gesho, in the main Brewmaster's discussion thread.

Sorry Revvy, I haven't read anything in that thread yet. I would've posted a link to it instead if I had.

Now off to read the Brewmaster's thread.
