Going to check the SG on this tonight. I used wyeast 1318 London Ale III. I'm a bit concerned cause it only had a krausen and showed activity the first 2 days then all airlock activity stopped and krausen fell. It was 62 so i brought the temp up a bit the last few days and stirred the yeast gently back into action. Of course maybe they ate all the sugars and are taking a nap as they should be. I won't know until I take a gravity reading. If they gave up on the job too early them I'm pitching a pack of Nottingham into the carboy.

Yeah my krausen was minimal on my batch too. I was almost worried about it... but i knew it was working. I also had a SUPPER clean transfer out into the carboys.

SG is 1.018 so I'm right on track guess the blow off tube wasn't needed for once. :-)

i brewed a PM version of this two weeks ago and the sample i just took has a gravity of 1.020. This is kind of high, so i'm wondering if i should stir up the yeast on the bottom of the carboy a bit to see if i can get it a bit lower. Also i used S-04 yeast instead, so could this be the reason for lower attenuation? Tastes great though!

Here's the recipe:
2 lbs maris otter
18 oz flaked oats
12 oz victory malt
10 oz pale chocolate malt
8 oz flaked barley
8 oz crystal 80L
8 oz roasted barley
2 oz chocolate malt
3.75 lbs pilsen light DME
1 oz willamette @ 60 min
1 oz willamette @ 45 min

S-04 yeast

mashed at 154 F
OG was 1.054
fermented at 64-66, let rise to 68-70 after 1 week

That looks almost exactly how mine went i bet it will be awesome!
You might taste it and see if it tastes too sweet or if it is ok. I stirred mine up a bit and warmed up to 70 and it dropped from .018 to .016 I plan to rack to keg this weekend

If I wanted a bit more of a roasty character to this brew, would it be as simple as just increasing the roasted barley by 2 oz. or so or would other parameters need to be changed? I brew a lot but don't know anything about recipe creation and what each grain imparts.

great! it tasted fine a week ago at 1.020, not too sweet for me. i ended up swirling the yeast up a bit and warming to 70 but haven't taken another gravity reading. ill take one next week when i bottle, hopefully it drops a couple points.
