You are planning on bottling this. Will it be still or are you planning on some sort of carbonation? Obviously no yeast will survive in a solution like that.

Bknifefight, it will not be carbonated. It will be bottled as is. The plan is for it to be sipped as you would a brandy or a whiskey. I have found with imperial stouts that I like a little lower carbonation. For something like this though, I think carbonation would distract from all the flavors that I want to come through.

HAHA! I really appreciated this post because, in college, my room mate and I would make cheep wines out of anything we could find and "distill" them in our freezer to concentrate them. We had no idea what we were doing and the brews always ended up terrible, but our technique was pretty solid and highly effective!

Question:
Do you carbonate or drink this flat?

Keep up the good work!!

Woodhokie4, I have not actually drank this yet but it will not be carbonated. Like was mentioned above there are no yeast that could naturally carbonate it and I don't want to force carbonate it. That is a great story about college....aaaa dorm room fun.

I bottled one bottle early to take with me for Thanksgiving to give to my father-in-law. Should be able to get around 20-21 7oz bottles total. Gosh, I spent a lot of money to only end up with 20 bottles. It should be worth it though. I can see why Brewdog charges like $80 a bottle for their tactical nuclear penguin.

Well we drank a bottle and all I can say is....wow!! The look: dark, clear, no head (not carbed), very lightly coated the glass when you swirled it. The taste: you notice the alcohol right off at first, then you feel the smoothness, very fruity, oaky (not too strong), nice mild roast flavor, amazing! It will definitely get better as it ages. My final guess at the ABV is around 35%.

Very nice. How much money do you suppose went into this recipe and what was the final price per bottle?
