Steep grains in 2gal at 150 for 45min. Sparge with 1gal 170 water.
Add extract and bring to a boil.
Add 60min hops.
Add 30min hops.
Add Irish moss at 10min.
2 weeks in primary.
2 weeks in secondary with the addition of the vanilla extract.

Predicted-
SRM 30
IBU 23.7
OG 1.049
FG 1.013
ABV 4.8

I think this may be as close as i can get to the numbers doing an extract brew. Hopefully i can fire it through this weekend and see how it acts in a couple months.
Either way, that looks like a solid beer, I bet it will turn out great!

I wish, having a baby or at least having a wife have a baby is a lot of work

Truth be told I like bitter beer too much and I don't brew a malty beer too often but I would like to get this in during the cold season coming up and am planning on it.

Anyone else have updates?

i hear ya, two year old and a 10 month old here.

something i noticed while punching it in - your total grain weight is 9.16, but the sum of your grainbill is 9.08.

also, would a single-infusion work fine?

I changed it, I think I adjusted some of the numbers and didn't update everything accordingly.

A single infusion will do just fine. I was just trying to get this as close to what was actually done by the original and that is what the brewer said that they did.

My attempt got infected in the secondary, bottled it anyways(left the nasty behind), so i cant say what it will be like. i plan on cracking one in 2 weeks to try it. I will have to make another attempt at this later and try to not screw it up.

I brewed this last weekend - it was my first try at a multi-stop mash. Seemed to go fairly well, i hit all the numbers, so that was a good sign. Primary fermentation has slowed considerably and I'll rack to secondary in a few days. I used a slightly different yeast, i used the White Labs WLP005 as thats teh closest the LHBS had on hand. The guy there looked over the recipie and commented that it oughtta make a pretty sweet beer.

cheers.

I've been drinking this for 2 or 3 weeks now. Overall I like it and it turned out fairly well. My only 'complaint' is in the carbonation, for some reason I didnt' get a real good carbonation in the bottles. Maybe I didn't get quite enough corn sugar. I don't get much head at all either - i'm wondering if this was due to less than perfect conversion in my mash.

But it's a good tasteing beer!
