The sugar mentioned is the syrup, as in my original recipe - one 500 ml bottle of dark syrup.

I brewed this last weekend, BIAB method, scaled to two gallons and had a 1.074 OG. I had slightly more grain (7lbs total) because I did it BIAB. I also had an issue and lost some (a decent amount splashed out, ouch) wort when removing the bag to the colander to drain. So my efficiency ended up being around 67%.

Anyway, all that to say my OG was 1.074

Will Do, GordonT!

I'm nearing the end of my mash as I type.

Just got this batch into the secondary.

SG was 1090.
Gravity into the secondary is at 1020.

Smells fantastic.

I used a brew belt for the primary and oh my did it ferment. Had wanted to rack into the secondary over the weekend but the krausen was still quite thick. Cleared this morning and I could I actually see the beer.

Can wait to try this out!

thanks again GordonT for sharing!

Hi Gordon!

I stumbled across this beer for the first time tonight... this is a new top five beer for me. It will come as no surprise that I now want to brew it.

How many times have you brewed this recipe? How true do you feel it comes to the commercial version?

Thanks so much for sharing!

I recently brewed this (*it is bottling). I let it ferment for a good 5 weeks. I actually made a two gallon batch and split it up into two separate one-gallon fermenters (I am just starting up and costs prohibit a bigger pot for bigger sizes and I just recently bought a five gallon bucket).

My OG was 1.076 and my FG was 1.016.

The taste of it (pre-carb) was awesome. Best I have brewed so far, and it tasted remarkably similar to the real deal. I was quite pleased. Haven't been this excited for my beer to carb yet! I'll let ya know how it tastes when I crack one around Christmas time!

This is very close to the original which I also love. This recipe is slightly darker and slightly richer, if you can imagine that

If you want a more exact match up substitute my Special B for Special Roast and it should be spot on. If you don't have Special Roast available you can use Brown Malt.
