RDWHAHB.............. let the nottingham continue to work it's magic. 3-4 weeks in primary is just right.

How close to Sam Adams Wee Heavy is this taste wise. I've had bell havens wee heavy, so I'm wondering how close in taste it is

What fermentation schedule has worked best for those who have brewed this? I typically keep in primary 3-4 weeks then bottle, with no secondary most of the time. I mostly brew IPAs and Browns though. I see some of you have secondaried as long as 2 months.

I have no MOA and wont have any till spring. If I were to sub in 2 row do you think I could bump up the malt taste with some Aromatic? Or will that throw off the whole flavor profile?

I think I would do it this way: split the base malt up, go with 75% two row and %25 munich.

So my strong scotch ale was in primary for a week or so (until it finished fermentation) then I left it in the carboy for almost 2 months. I'll be bottling it this week. Is there anything I need to do to get it ready for bottling? obviously prime it, but will there be enough yeast in suspension to carbonate it?

This looks great!!! Which dry yeast would you recommend, Nottingham or US-05?
