First in one carboy, 2nd in the other. Figure why not goof with more than one yeast being I can't fit 10.5 gallons of wort in one 6.5 gallon carboy.

Note: Hot break on this stout was MUCH higher than anticipated resulting in not as much wort collected and less evaporation that hoped for. Still hit 1.084. Was expecting between 1.080 and 1.085 for 12 gallons. (with 12 gallons I only collect 11.5, gear drinks the rest)

As for the Northwest Stout in the title I figured that this can't be a RIS because of hops chosen. The trend in american stouts is to hop them up alot more, similar to the RIS, but they max out at the 1.075 gravity which would bump this into the RIS category. This being neither american stout or a proper Russian Imperial Stout I needed another category to place this in. Being that I live in the northwest I figured why not! Besides, sounds cool and that's all that matters. The cool factor.

How did this turn out? I've been thinking of making a black IPA with Chinook and Sorachi. Your thoughts?
