Put that one in secondary for batch aging (as others said), and forget about it for a month or two, or 6.

Now go brew a quick turnaround beer so you get your pipeline going.

Thanks for clarifying that!
It sounds like a session beer would be sipped over a session- but the reverse is true. A "session beer" is a beer you can pound over an evening (a session) and not be unable to function! A "sessionable beer" is about 4% or under and easy drinking. You've got yourself a sipper there!

Why do I get the feeling you are going to add 750ml of rum AND 1/2# coffee, and wth, some oatmeal!
oh well, lol, it is your beer. I was thinking something like BM's Centennial Blonde that can be done in 2-3 weeks if you keg.

Haha, nope, just a good ol porter, from kit. Midwest power pack porter. No additives this time! Hah. And I don't keg yet, I'm trying to slowly bring the wife on my side with my new hobby, so eventually! At least that double IPA is almost ready to drink.

Oh, swoon. Never made an IPA. I wanna make me one, except most of my friends think hops are yucky and too much hops is even yuckier.

I need new friends ...

Tallgirl you need new friends for sure.

If anyone is into DIPA's I suggest you travel to new England and hit up some heady topper from a brewery called The Alchemist. To die for DIPA.

I'm a hop head but looking to do something more dark for my next brew. I tend to stick with ambers/apa/ipa but want to do something outside the norm. Just can't decide what.

I have on order the Movember Hopstache Black IPA but am going to use 1oz Warrior for bittering hops and then continuesly hop for the full 60 using the provided hops in the kit, right after I brew the porter!

hey, I appreciate your efforts to make a special brew. I too have that urge to tinker with my kits. I have a java stout and superior strong ale coming tomorrow and I am debating adding some chocolate to the java. I was thinking of almost making a bottling batch (sugar or honey and water) and add choc powder to this then adding to the boil the last 10-15 minutes.

I used to tamper with my kits until I noticed that I was making some pretty overwhelming beers that mostly just sat around aging while I spent good money on more moderate commercial beers. I still love brewing up some freak juice, but at least 3 of 4 beers I make now are 1.060 or less and at least roughly based on a traditional style.
