Came across this thread a day after doing my own, using what I could get from my admittedly a bit average LBS. I like the extra steeping grains you were able to get for yours. Being my 4th ever brew it was a big step up to do such a big beer. Recipe as follows. (note the metric here in Oz)
17 litre batch with 12 litre boil
1.5 kg Light LME
2.5 kg Pils DME
.25 kg Dark candi sugar
.25 kg honey
40 gm Hallertau 60 mins
25 gm Tettenger 60 mins
25 gm Goldings Styrian 5 mins
1.5 sachets Danstar T58 (no liquid available)
I'll add a bit of yeast with the priming sugar
Expected FG 1.022
I noticed fermentation kicking off after 4 hours and by morning was VERY active with the temp a bit higher than I wanted 28 C. I had wrapped it in a wet towel but it was still going mad.
I'm planning about 10 days primary, then 20 secondary before bottling and leaving it as long as I able. 2 months min would be nice.
How is yours going?
