Thanks for the reply. I suspect I will end up with 4 1/2 gal to bottle. It is exactly 5 gal now but I know I will loose some when I pull it off the bananas. I had never tried Sailor Jerrys before but I have to say it's the only rum I have ever liked straight. Definitely a sipping rum. So I will have to check the gravity again when I pull it off the bananas and I'll let you know if your math worked. Thanks again...

i don't believe you'll be able to tell whether or not his math worked via a gravity reading, because by adding the rum you've gone off the predicted path. calculating ABV by looking at the difference between OG and FG works only if you don't add other sources of fermentable or alcohol. the reading you will get may not be indicative of 8.8% alcohol.

You've got a point. Also, the bananas added fermentable sugar. Fermentation restarted within 2 hours. Not as good as primary but a lot more than was going on when I racked it to secondary. So I guess I'll just have to check it again in two weeks. I'll post up when I check.

Any thoughts on throwing some oak in there for a short period?
Going to brew this on Wednesday! Looking forward to it!

Brewed this up yesterday. Upped the IBUs to around 25. Hit 1.082.... Threw it on a yeast cake of pacman yeast. We'll see! Hope it turns out amazing!

Picking up ingredients for this tonight and brewing on Sunday. SO EXCITED!

Thanks for all the comments; this thread is a good read. I'm a little grey on some things, but I think I've got 90% of the recipe documented. I'll wing the other stuff.

Also, this is my first all-grain batch. Doing BIAB. Wish me luck!

Just an FYI, I made a variation of this and it was good, but it had an off flavor that tasted like rubber. I meant to dump the rest of the bottles out but I didn't and it sat for 6 months. I opened one last week and it tasted like amazing. No rubbery taste.

Anybody have a clue makes a rubbery taste?

I racked this to terciery today and checked FG again, 1.010 again. So I guess it's still 8.3 ABV. Tastes great! Very smooth, banana flavor is obvious but not harsh. I can't wait to taste it carbed. I think, based on the current taste, I will skip the week in terciery and bottle tomorrow. It is very clear now so I don't think another week will make much difference. Any thoughts from those who have brewed this?

No replies overnight so it's bone. Tastes great as it is. I bottled half and legged half. We'll see if they come out the same since I filled the keg from the bottling bucket already primed.
