I normally use whirfloc.. irish moss won't hurt at all. have used it before as well as gelatin ... even if I somehow forget to add ANY of those, I always crash cool to drop it clear.

Brewed this yesterday. Hit all my numbers. Love the red color going into the fermenter. Can't wait to taste it in a few weeks.

My 5 gallons of this have been sitting on Medium toast Hungarian oak for over a month now. Beautifully clear and red, nice notes of vanilla. Time to bottle it so I think

Yeah, how much oak did you use? I'd really like to try that.

I brewed a 5 gallon all grain batch of this and its fermenting now, thanks alot for the recipe. Problem, when i was sparging the water I threw in was alot higher than anticipated because of a broken thermometer. The water with grains while sparging was 180 in the mash cooler. Will this really mess up the beer? What will happen?
Thanks

The beer disposal in my house works pretty well but thanks for the offer.

I ended up using an oak stick. Looked like this while sanitizing in Irish whiskey for 3 days.

I would use cubes but had to settle for what's available.
