Mysticmead -
My thanks for an incredible recipe. Did my first homebrew this spring (kits), and this was my first foray into all grain. Did a noob goof and forgot the Melanoiden, but the beer is now quite drinkable although not with the full red color I've seen by others. Only concern I have now is I don't want to share it (except of course with SWMBO).

As I had done a couple of carb bombs I was conservative with the sugar for bottling and perhaps could have done a bit more. But the head, while not voluminous, does stay. Wonderful taste, easy to drink.

This will be one I want to always have available.

Finished drinking my first keg of this everyone who tasted said it was a winner. Will be brewing this one again.

Here is how it turned out for me.

I just racked a 10 gallon batch of this beauty to kegs this past weekend. I brewed the recipe, unchanged, and hit the gravity numbers. The sample from the primary tasted terrific and the color is outstanding. I can't wait to try it carbonated. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

The original recepie is for BIAB if I use this amount of grain for my setup where I mash in a cooler I should get 5-10 points more for the OG. I’m still working on optimising my system so the chances are that I won’t relalise this but if I do end up with a higher O.G. will this effect the taste of the beer significantly? Would it be advised to dilute it down with a few quarts of pre-boiled and cooled water?
I haven’t had a chance to read all 30+ pages in this thread but has someone already brewed this with an OG of 1.065 to 1.070 and did it still taste as awsome?
Thanks a lot.
I usually run about 82-83% efficiency biab, and yes it was amazing.

Brewed this two weeks ago following exact recipe, OG 1.060, 73% efficiency, great color. 15 days in primary, kegged today. Took a gravity reading and it was still 1.022, going to leave in keg one more week to see if it goes down any more before i put it in the kegerator and cool. My mash temp was lower than i wanted, about 148, but iodine test showed conversion. Could this account for a high finish gravity? first AG batch in many years.

a lower mash temp normally equals a more fermentable wort and a lower FG. I would check the thermometer and make sure it was reading correctly

Just put this in the fermenter. Looks good but had some strange numbers. I also could not get to 152 mash in my garage. Mashed at 150. Gravity 1.049. OG after boil is 1.08! Think I had a lot of boil off. Might need to adjust for my larger boil kettle? Ended up with about 4.8 gal.
