This is my first recipe I've made and my 3rd overall brew,b but with the help of my LHBS owner I feel like its going to be really good. The recipe is as follows.

1LB. of C-60
1/2 LB of Maris
1/2 LB of Boulauder Munich
1/4 LB of Victory
1/4 LB of Carapils

6 LB of Pilsen LME
3 LB of golden light LME
2 LB of regular cane sugar

1 oz of Czech Saaz hops (bittering)
1oz of Kent Golding (aroma)

2 oz. of French oak chips

1 pack of safale 05

5oz of dextrose

Steep grains at 165 for 60 min in 2 gallons water

Bring to a boil and add LME and sugar.

Add Czech Saaz @ 60 min

Add Kent Golding @ 15 min

Top off wort to 5 gallons and cool to 60 degrees, pour into fermenter and pitch safale 05 and seal

Primary for 14 day then rack on to oak chips in secondary for 25 days

Rack onto 5 oz of dextrose and bottle

After 20 days keep in bottles at 50 degrees till you are ready to drink.

ENJOY,
Robert

Brewmaster warehouse say I should get 10.5 % ABV but I think it will be closer to 11%. I'm brewing this tomorrow and I will update with my OG after that.

Can you get a second yeast pack? A 10% beer with one pack of yeast is going to struggle.

I would pitch 2 packs of s05 in order to not underpitch. Also, I would utilize a higher alpha acid hop at the beginning of the boil such as chinook. Otherwise, it will end up unbalanced, being way more sweet than bitter.

14 day primary may be short for this beer. Maybe 30 days primary, then rack to the oak for 15-30 days. Then bottle at least 6 months before drinking.

I thought about that but I don't want to lose a little residual sweetness from the in fermented sugars, I also thought if after 10 days my gravity wasn't where I felt it should be I would re pitch half a pack and then the rest 10 days later. Is that an ok thing to do?
