Getting close to the end of the boil on mine, I'm going to use 002 instead of Notty though. This may be a 2.5% beer if the 002 doesn't get it below 1.015

Ended up boiling off too much and had an OG around 1.041, oh well, I'll get it right next time

Here's mine. I know, it's a little dark, but I'm just a dark kind of guy. I put 8 oz. of chocolate malt in mine and it was the darker, English kind. It's a pleasure to drink.

Yummmm, that looks fantastic! I have been adding a bit of debittered black to this lately, I love the flavor it adds when used in small amounts!

Used US04 with my batch. At two weeks, I just took a reading and it's at 1.016! I was going to move it to the keg today and chill for 24 hours before putting on gas. Anyone else experience high numbers with the US04?

Should I wait another week and take another reading or toss it in the keg and chill? I would prefer to chill it, I'm tasting a sample right now...I'm getting alot of figs and PRUNES and it already seems pretty dry tasting so now sure if I would want it to keep dropping.

I have had s04 work a little weak before, if you like the flavor profile as it is, keg, chill, and carbonate!

Going to brew up a batch of this this weekend. Although I do all grain, I need to crank out a quick batch to fill a keg, and will try the new NB Marris Otter syrup, with Wyeast 1968 ESB. Looking forward to it! I am a bit concerned that it will attenuate too much, but we'll see.

definetly going to make this. how do y'all age this? 10 day primary and a few weeks in the keg under pressure? Lately i've been letting my beers sit for 2 or 3 weeks in the keg before i tap them.

That should be fine, no need to change your typical process any.

It's going to be a little bit light, possibly slightly thin, but it's still going to make a good beer, I changed things up last batch with some debittered black malt, and a bit less chocolate.
