I'd rate it pretty highly and a crowd pleaser.

I had a small party the weekend following that post. The day after I went to bottle the rest up and only got 6 .5L bottles filled, hence no followup photo. Everyone enjoyed it, especially the SWMBO.

As far as notes go, the color never was "Ruby red". However, aroma and taste, from what I remember, was exactly what you would expect from this recipe. Whatever esters were present prior to kegging went away shortly after. You could slightly taste them again if the beer was warm, but you had to be looking for it at that point.

When I finally move and get my equipment unpacked, this is likely the first thing I'm making, since it was universally enjoyed.

Crap on a bike! Brewed a double batch of this today. No idea how it happened, but the OG came out 1.070!!

ubermick,

I had a similar issue today ... ended up with 5.5 gallons at 1.073. Not sure what to deal is ...

Everything went extremely smooth with the brew day and really looking forward to trying this brew. Followed the recipe to the T except I used Safale-4 (too lazy/not enough time to fool with a starter).

Well, whatever happened on this, it's awful. As noted above, the OG was 1.070, and despite all attempts of repitching extra yeast, the FG was 1.021, and it tastes like drinking syrup. Will perhaps chuck an ounce of EKGs into the keg to try and balance it out.

Brewed this for a second time about six weeks ago. I am enjoying the fruits of my labor. Great beer once again.

I'm kinda new to this so please bear with me. The recipe has a batch size of 5.5 gallons. Does this mean that I should be fermenting 5.5 gallons rather than a standard 5 gallon batch? Is this with or without the trub?

Thanks, Rich

You will be fermenting 5.5 gallons of wort in addition to the trub.

I just brewed this yesterday using BIAB. It's currently in the no-chill cube. Will begin to ferment tomorrow.
