Cool thanks. Just trying to get a bit more sweetness out of it, thought the 8oz of honey malt would do it.

I brewed this yesterday, and the smell coming from the mash was amazing! My only concern was with my final gravity. It seemed way off compared to what I was expecting from the amount of grain/honey. It came in at 1.080 (temp was a little high at 84.)

Also the amount in the fermenter is higher than expected. I had a nice rolling boil the entire 60 mins but my 7.2 gallons only boiled down to 6. I had a few triples during the process and didnt notice the amount until I poured it into my fermenter /facepalm.

1st time in about 11 all grain batches Ive ran into these issues. Ill just have to see how it pans out! Here is hoping because everything tasted delicious through the process!

I swear I read that priming for bottling was not necessary with this beer, but can't find
It anywhere so maybe I was in another thread. So can you help me out with this. Does they need to be primed. Thanks for your
Help and all the great ideas in this threa

I don't get how it would carb if it's fully fermented. The sugar should all be magically transformed into alcohol.

It won't carb without extra (priming) sugar. However, since this is a Hopslam clone and contains honey, you could use some extra honey to prime. You would still be adding a "priming" sugar but instead of corn or table sugar, it would use the honey. This would definitely also embolden the honey flavor of the beer. Just a thought.

I am brewing this in a couple weeks and was thinking about trying a parti-gyle, since it's such a big beer. My thoughts were to scale the recipe for 6 gallons (I usually do 6 gallons for my IPA's to make up for hop absorption), mash/batch sparge as I typically do. Then sparge again and collect 3-4 gallons for a pale ale. Does this sound feasible? I've never tried this before so anyone with experience doing this I would like to hear your thoughts

I have done a few parti-gules and what you describe is pretty much what I do.

just checked the gravity on it to see how it was going. Took a while for it to start fermenting but it is down to 1.014. Ill probably get it in the 2ndary for a few days to dry hop it up and then off to the keg it goes!

Definitely a Hop SLAM! WhooooWeee its got some serious IBU's going on !

Did this two weeks ago and it is still rocking pretty good. Guess it will be spending some extra time in primary.
