Looking for a long term beer, and I think I've found it.

Just brewed this up; looking forward to seeing how it comes out. Used S-05; tired of making starters. Wound up with close to 6 gallons post-boil; fermenting in single vessel (7 gal bucket) without trouble. I did rig up a pre-emptive blowout, but it's redundant so far.

Well, I have decided not to add bourbon or oak to this beer. I tasted a sample this weekend and wow. No booze flavor. Not killer on the roast, I added a half cup of coffee grounds to the mash and it really adds some depth of flavor. Looking to bottle in a week or two. I'm going to do a few 22oz bottles and compete this beer to see how it scores.

Definitely keeping my eyes on this one. My Old Rasputing RIS clone is just carbing up, hopefully. My first bottle was quite flat (tasty, but quite flat) so I moved it into the house because even in S. CA it is pretty cold for fermentation out in the garage. Hoping to be drinking on Thanksgiving. This one looks even richer and denser.

My better-half's favorite beer is Old Rasputin (on nitro when she can get it!) and she loved this RIS when we tried a bottle at 5 weeks old. I have really high hopes for this as it gets some age on it!

Brewed today, ended up at 6 gallons and 1.095 OG. Also used S-05 and saw signs of activity within 4 hours. Plan is to primary for 4 weeks, secondary with bourbon and oak for 8-12 weeks, then toss in a keg to age for as long as I can hold out. Excited to see how it comes out.

After a 5 week primary I racked to a keg last night with 12 ounces of bourbon and 2 ounces of oak cubes in a bag. It was sitting at 1.019 and tasted excellent. Trying to hide this keg for a few months!
