Did your blow off clog?
No, you can't clog a blow off you don't have. *Face Palm*

I thought 4.5 gallons would have plenty of headspace split into two 5 gallon carboys. I was wrong.

I did 5 gal in a 7 gal primary. I had blow off for a week. I think you'd almost need a 10gal fermenter to tame this as a 5 gal batch.

Live and learn. That's what I thought I was doing with splitting the 5 gallons into 2 5 gallon carboys.

Has anyone tried this recipe with Nottingham's? I've got a Samuel Smith oatmeal stout that should be ready to bottle by next week. I'm thinking about just brewing this and pitching it on the cake.

You could try it but the nottingham could stall out necessitating a second yeast.

I'll be trying this again as an all grain recipe and will split the batch into two fermenters. One will get oak after primary is over and the other unoaked. Hopefully I won't have too much blow off with 3gal in a 6gal BB.

What is the max time you all have had this in secondary? I brewed up a batch with my cousin a few months ago now and have had it in secondary for at least 2 months...


We're moving soon, so I'm gonna have to get off my burro and bottle this on up soon, but I'm curious..

Mike.

Is this a balanced and rich brew, or is it just a huge black beer?M
