I just brewed this tonight. I did 8oz of blackstrap by weight (4 and some change by volume) since that's how I dished out everything else. No yeast nutrient, no gypsum. My OG was right on target. The brew smelled delicious and the rich chocolate color looked amazing. I can't wait for this to get in the bottle!

Pretty easy; only did a 45 minute boil:
Time - Additions
45min - 3lb sorghum, 3lb rice syrup, 1lb D-180 Dark Candi, 8oz Blackstrap Molasses, 5oz Dextrose, .5oz Cascade, .5oz Northern, 8oz maltodextrin, 1tsp gypsum
22min - .25oz Cascade, .25oz Northern
15min - 1tsp irish moss, 0.5tsp Yeast Nutrient
5min - .25oz Cascade, .25oz Northern

OG - 1.056
FG - 1.010
ABV - 5.9
IBU - 35
SRM - 27
after reading this i just realized i used 3lb 15 oz (4lbs) of brown rice syrup and i actually weighed the 8oz of blackstrap molasses.. opps.. but still turned out AWESOME!!

Ha! Wouldn't be a beer forum without drunk posts. Having 6 or 7 cases of beer in the house at any given time does make you a target for all your friends. My suggestion..... brew more.

I made my version of the Dual Spires Black Lodge, and it was great. I was thinking about doing it again, but I wanted more hops, zest, and something extra... maybe a little 'punch' in my next brew. My idea was to add late hops, and switch out the Northern for Chinook. I've gotten really good input and ideas through this thread - so I am submitting my recipe here and would love to get your input and ideas.

--50min:
1lb Brown Rice Syrup or Molasses
2lb Rice Syrup Solids
1lb D-180 Candi Syrup
.5oz Cascade Hops
.5oz Chinook Hops
--20min:
.25oz Cascade Hops
.25oz Chinook Hops
--10min:
.25oz Cascade Hops
.25oz Chinook Hops
--5min:
1cap Servomyces
--Flameout:
3lb White Sorghum Syrup
.5oz Cascade Hops
.5oz Chinook Hops
Safale US-05
--Dry Hop:
1.5oz Cascade Hops in secondary
1.5oz Chinook Hops in secondary


-Matt

I'm assuming this is for a 5 gallon boil?
I would do 2lbs of the D-180 and definitely NOT 1lb of molasses. Go with 1lb of BRS.
I'll let someone else comment on the hops, I'm not that familiar with those.

I kegged my batch of this recipe last night. SG 1.066, FG 1.022. Hydro sample tasted slight acidic, some initial hops which have way to caramel flavor. Slightly thin mouth feel, very curious to see how this will taste once carbonated.

Thanks for the recipe!
