Very nice, even higher than my gravity overshot I am sure it will still be tasty though.

Hi human,

Do you know an extract version of this? I'm looking to do one over the holidays.

Thanks
Ayup!

2 out of the 3 non base malts only need to be steeped for just steep the Cara-Pils and C40 and put in a splash of wheat extract if you want.

Use enough extract to get to 1.060 by the end of the boil and steep the specialties and then the same hops.

This would be an easy extract conversion.


88% 2-row
5% Cara-pils
3.5% C40
3.5% Wheat Malt

Sorry humann I'm a newby, could you be a little more specific on the malts and specialty grains? What do you recommend for the main extract? And what qty? And the specialty grains are cara, c40 and wheat malt, but what quantity of each? I guess I need to know how to determine amount of bulk extract that would give the required SG and from that work out the rest. Sorry for these probably basic questions. But thanks.

Ayup!

no problem, I go the following from http://beercalculus.hopville.com/recipe a free online recipe calculator since I don't have beersmith in from of me.

for 5.5 gallons into the fermentor
7.5lbs of dried Malt extract (unhopped) like briess if your looking for a brand
.5lb of carapils/dextrine crushed
.5lbs of Crystal 40L crushed

If you don't have wheat extract or don't want to buy 3 pounds just to use a 1/2 pound I wouldn't worry about it. If you have a friend that has some or your store will sell you a small amount like that, you could toss in a 1/2 of wheat extract and take the base DME down to 7lbs instead of 7.5.

Are you able to do a full boil?

If so you can leave the hops the same, if not, you will need to put quite a bit more in as you will be diluting it with water in the fermentor.

Hope this helps but let me know if you have more questions.

Yes, it is!

I dry hopped it a little more (5oz amarillo 4 days) and soaked 8oz of French oak cubes for 24 hrs. This lands somewhere between Pig and Pliny with a little edge from the oaking.

very nice! it is funny the grain bills are pretty much the same between Blind pig and Pliny it is just all about gravity and hops to show the difference.

Looks tasty!
