Bottled this about 3-4 months ago and it's starting to blend just right - should've carbonated a bit more, as it's probably around 1.7 vols and maybe added a bit more port. I think a bit less than half a bottle went in. Still, probably my best beer to date.

I just bought ingredients to make 2 more batches. The second runnings will be used to make a schwarzbier using 2308 and a Farmhouse stout using 3726. I'm making the starters today or Sunday and brewing this upcoming week! Woohoo!

Well I will not actually buy them when liquid is relatively cheaper. Just wondering where people are getting it so cheap. If it is that cheap when I get back to the states, I may stock up. But since I harvest and plate, I still doubt it.

I have been getting it from eBay for quite a while, Nottingham that is. They advertised 1.99 with 2.50 shipping which seems like a lot, but if you order 20 of them the shipping stays the same. It looks like they've changed the policy to make it 1.00 extra ship per unit though which makes it still expensive. I see AHB is selling a 50 count for a little under a hundred bucks. That's a lot of Notti for a single brewer, but highly doable for a club.

I brewed up another batch on Sunday and got an OG of 1.100 and got a Partigyle second runnings of 1.055 (after mixing in a little less than a gallon of extra first runnings I lautered). I pitched 1056 in a gallon starter for Kate and pitched the 3726 farmhouse yeast from wyeast for an interesting Belgian saison stout. Time will tell...

That sounds like a stellar idea. I will steal this from you and try it next time I brew Kate. Hope you don't mind.
