I kegged mine a few days ago after a week of dry hopping.

Had a few litres left that wouldn't fit in the keg...began to bottle it, then thought, screw that, poured it into a giant bottle and have been working through it the last two nights! This stuff is gooood...

Made this a couple weeks ago. I would say for the dry-hop, if using whole hops have them in for at least 10 days, probably 14. For pellets, 7 days should do it. I used whole, and didn't have quite the effect I wanted. Was quite the hit at our brew club meeting though

I was planning on brewing this last weekend but life got in the way. Instead I'm prepping for this Sunday. Anyone have some last minute tweaks I should know about? I have all the ingredients to brew this per the original recipe but I'm open to suggestions.

Default Low OG

So I finally brewed this yesterday and I ended up with a REALLY low OG of 1.020. After I added the DME, which took a long time to avoid boiling over, I could not keep the foam down unless I reduced the heat to a point where the wort was barely boiling. Anyone else run into this problem/know what I can do (if anything) to prevent it? I think the OG was low because I boiled a lot off and had to add ~2gal of water to get it back up to 5 gallons in the carboy.

I can guarantee you didnt mix well. There is no way to get that low of a og. Especially with extract. You should be just fine.

I'm starting to agree with the above poster about dry-hopping a bit longer. My last batch didn't have quite the aroma I wanted. I think I will try 10 days next and see how that turns out.

My last batch I also used only 4oz. chocolate malt, as I was concerned the 6oz. was making the roast flavor a BIT too strong. Not sure if I like it better or not, but might want to go that route depending on your tastes.
