I just racked this hog to secondary, I filled my 5 gallon carboy up to the brim....I had about 16 oz left over so I filled a glass....this was SOOO good. Mildly sweet, not bitter at all, toffee, roasted nuts, coffee and a light bit of smokiness from the chocolate malt......this is going to a one good beer. I think the marris otter and the caramel malt are the key players here. Marris otter makes a huge difference over standard two row

When a beer is delicious and perfectly enjoyable after primary with no carbonation..you know you are in for something good.[/QUOTE]

Had all sorts of problems with this one on brew day. Namely, I went pure retard. The recipe was fine.

My notes from BeerSmith:

Came out of the mash tun with 13.9 gallons when I expected 13.2-13.3 gallons . Unsure how that happened.

Windy during the boil and I had the extra liquid, so I had to boil longer. Should have waited until the usual 13.3 gallon mark before starting the boil timer, but didn't realize it until I'd already tossed in hops. Boil took closer to 120 min because of the slow boiloff rate from the wind blowing the flame around. Didn't want to lose all of my flavoring hops and have only bittering, so added an additional set of Nugget (the only jar I could reach in the freezer without hurting myself) at 30 mins.

Before:
- Boil 90 min
- 0.84 oz Chinook @ 60 min
- 0.84 oz Chinook @ 30 min
- 27.0 IBU

After:
- Boil 120 min
- 0.84 oz Chinook @ 90 min
- 0.84 oz Chinook @ 60 min
- 0.84 oz Nugget @ 30 min
- 47.3 IBU

Fermenting with Notty at 60-63F.

Identical to the OP recipe. Here is what I'll be giving a try in January:

14.00 lb Maris Otter (81.16 %)
1.00 lb Crystal 60L (5.80 %)
1.00 lb Munich Malt 10L (5.80 %)
1.00 lb Special Roast (5.80 %)
0.15 lb Roasted Barley (0.87 %)
0.10 lb Chocolate Malt (0.58 %)

5.75 gal Strike Water at 160.5F
Mash at 149F for 45 min
Remove 16 qt for grist from Mash Tun in to Boiling Pot
Bring 16 qt grist to boil
Add boiled grist to Mash Tun until Mash Tun Temperature reaches 157F
Mash at 157F for 45 min
Heat 4.2 gal Sparge Water to 170F
Fly Sparge for 7.6 gal Pre Boil Wort

*Note, My water quantity has been adjusted because I lose 0.625 gal in my mash tun and 1.0625 gal in my Boil Pot.

0.50 oz Chinook [13 % AA] (First Wort Hop)
0.50 oz Chinook [13 % AA] (30 min)

Yeast Starter:
Wort - Boil 3 oz. of DME in 1 Liter of water for 15 minutes
Add 2 Wyeast 1728 Scottish Ale to chilled wort
Stir Plate for 18 hours

Ferment for 5 weeks at 62 then cold crash for 2 days and then in to the Keg.

I will be using a starter and to calculate the necessary yeast cells brewer's friend gave me an OG of 1.087 for this recipe although OP has it much lower?

I brewed this beer to ring in the New Year on December 31st. Racked to secondary about 13 days later. Tasted delicious!

The fridge that holds the secondary fermenter can only go up to 45 degrees. Will this affect the beer? It's been at 45 for maybe two weeks.

Your beer will be excellent. Heck, I would hold it even colder if I had a fridge to cold store my beer for aging.

Sipping on this one now. I didn't do a decoction, but sure as heck will next time. Also, I used London Ale 1028. (I love that yeast) Fermented wort at 62 degrees (probe on fermentor)

It's a fine recipe. Nice malty taste, but would be better with a decoction and maybe some honey malt or something.
