Its probably worth the wait with the bigger brews but let us know how it has improved. Perhaps I too give it some extra time in the bottle if you notice much improvement.

Bottled my extract version yesterday and it tasted great. It's not quite Ruination but it's close. My version is maltier and darker in color but the bitterness and hop profile is very close. We'll see how it tastes after it has been bottle conditioned.

Thanks for all the help.

Just did my first of two FG readings on the extract version. If it is done fermenting then I am just .09 away from the Stone Ruination ABV.

It is not dry hopped yet but it is absolutely delicious. I could drink this right out of the FV as it is now.

0.09%? thats pretty damn accurate. Mine is still in primary but cant wait to rack and dry hop the mother out of it.

Good luck with your clone and Happy Brewing!

Totally newb style, but since i'm a huge ruination fan i had to try this recipe out 4 days ago. I'm happy any time my apartment smells like centennials. ANYWAY, my OG only got a reading of 1.055, but she's been bubbling nicely so i hope i can still get a tasty (yet sadly lower in abv) beer out of this!

Its not always about the ABV mate, so dont worry about that. However, in a brew this hoppy you need that extra kick to balance out the hops. That said it may still come out just fine.

Good luck with your brew and Happy Brewing.

This beer turned out fantastic - a friend who also brews said it was one of the tastiest beers he's ever had!

Yooper, i know it's a lot to ask, but do you havd any kind of suggestion for making a similar beer, but almost like a session version? I love ruination, but would like a lower abv one that lets me drink multiple pints without falling over

I'm always working on a good session recipe, but I haven't really found one that can give me all the flavor without losing the great balance.

Thanks for the reply. Seems like the holy grail for hop bombs
