Esmitee, how long did you leave it in the primary, secondary, and bottles? I just brewed a 5-gal batch based on your recipe, and am really looking forward to it!

Hello LaatDeMout, I don't secondary at all.
I left it in my primary for 14 days with an average temp of 71*
I keg, so don't know how long it would take to carb and condition.

I forced carbed and 2 days later tasted it. It was great tasting, But got better after a week or two!

One other note I can tell you is OG 1.071, and an FG of 1.016 @ 14 days

If your batch turns out like mine, You'll love it. Good Luck.

BTW, I'm going to try and AG version of this real soon.

New Years Eve day I did an AG of DFH Indian Brown Ale. Oh YEA. UMMMMM

think safbrew t-58 would work ok with this recipe? i have an extra packet laying around, and figured this style would probably work good. also i was thinking of using sugar beet molasses in there.

Hia, I've never used the t-58, so I really can't comment on that yeast. I think the sub : sugar beet molasses would be great. If ya use them n brew it. Let us know how it turns out.

I've drooled over this thread long enough...3rd day in primary @ 65f.

I had to make a couple substitutions. WL yeast instead of Wyeast (It's the abbey IV), aromatic instead of kiln coffee, and hallertau instead of vanguard. Other than that, I followed your recipe for the wort, which was delicious by the way, and I got an OG of 1.072. It is also, much darker than the original beer, but I suppose that's to be expected with an extract version.

I'm going to do a 2 stage fermentation and bottle...I'll let you know how it goes.

Question: What are your thoughts on aging this one? I was thinking that with the big body and higher gravity, it might be best to bottle condition for a couple/few months.
Having said that, I'm still new to the hobby, and I'm not set up for cool storage (I do have a small chiller for fermentation). The coolest place in my house is in the mid to upper 70's. Will it ruin it to age that high? I suppose I could move at least a sixer to the fridge and try to keep my grubby paws off of 'em and either take my chances with the rest, or drink them fresh. What do you think?
